Dropbox Chooser

This is a Cordova plugin to support the Dropbox Chooser on iOS and Android. It embeds a copy of the Dropbox Chooser SDK, version 1.1 (at the time of writing), so you do not need to download it separately.

It is licensed under the MIT license - see the LICENSE file.


You will need to create a app within the Dropbox App Console (https://www.dropbox.com/developers/apps/) as a developer, with the 'permission type' of 'Drop-ins'.

Cordova Local Build Installation & Configuration

Download the Dropbox Chooser package from this repository and install using the following commands:

$ cd [path_to_project]
$ cordova plugin add [directory_of_dropbox_chooser]

iOS Only

In plugin.xml you will need to insert your PhoneGap app ID for $APP_ID BEFORE adding the plugin to your project:


In addition, once a Dropbox app has been created, you will be presented with an app key (viewable on the app settings page) which you will need to insert into the following tag within plugin.xml where $DROPBOX_APP_KEY is your app key:


Note: if you attempt to compile your iOS in Xcode without these keys, it will throw an exception when you call the Chooser.

PhoneGap Cloud Build Installation & Configuration

  1. Copy the file DropboxChooser.js into your www/js assets directory.

  2. Add the following line to your index.html file:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="js/DropboxChooser.js"></script>

iOS Only

  1. Change your config.xml to add the following tags and add your Dropbox app key for [app_key] and your PhoneGap app ID for [app_id]:

    <gap:plugin name="uk.co.cv-library.plugins.DropboxChooser"> <param name="APP_ID" value="[app_id]" /> <param name="DROPBOX_APP_KEY" value="db-[app_key]" /> </gap:plugin>


Please see the app.js file within Example/www/js for a code snippet example of how to integrate this plugin with your app.
