It's difficult for me to write a quick summary about Dropbox Extractor - project that I had been developing and tuning for a while. But I'll try anyway and I am sure the wait for the result was worth it!
First of all, thank you for your patience! :-) The main reason for such a long development time was that I wanted to reach the best user experience I could. Of course, the first idea was to use a default GUI for Docker infrastructure. But I guess this approach would be enough only for specific connectors like iTunes Connect or Youtube Reporting Api, not for Dropbox, where a bigger adoption is expected (if the UX is good enough).
A month ago a production version was completed, but I still wanted to add some more features and improve the overall user-experience. Now I can proudly share the result of that effort. In a nutshell, you can simply select files from your Dropbox and upload them to your Keboola storage, but after a deeper look you will find features like:
- Selecting CSV files and assign them to various KBC buckets (one file can be assigned to multiple buckets).
- In case of selecting two files with the same name, they will either keep the actual name (if two different buckets had been selected) or distinguish between each other by adding a simple hash.
- Bulk or single file upload.
- Output table details in configuration list.
Well, I would love to say thanks to Keboola developers, to Martin Halamicek in particular. His hints and debugging skills helped to define what the Dropbox Extractor is now today and I just hope you enjoy it in the same way as I do! And of course, any feedback is welcome! Enjoy!
