Static HTML file browser for Dropbox

Two of my students worked on a project that creates static HTML files for a public Dropbox folder (find it at github). I use it in production, check it out here.

If you created your Dropbox account before October 4, 2012, then you are lucky and you have a Public folder. Accounts opened after this date have no Public folder :(

So, if you have a Public folder and you want to share the content of a folder recursively, then you can try this script. It produces a file and directory list that is similar to an Apache output.

    Thank you for sharing!

    Just one note about the Public folder. I read somewhere you can have Public folder enabled on accounts created after October 4, 2012 if you have Dropbox Pro subscription.

      Right. If you pay, you can have a Public folder.
