Dropbox reporting (Linux ideally)


Using dropbox with a master account controlling top level shares to multiple users (with their own accounts)

I am looking for a utility that will allow me to create a report of some sort for the master account showing a list of folders and who has shared access.
I know I can do this from the web UI (slowly), but want to run this process automatically so I can see any [unexpected] changes.

I guess I could work out the API and do this myself, but hoping that someone has something already in place.
I would have thought a good external reporting tool for Dropbox (for share info, total size used etc) would be a good thing to have available.

Any pointers would be helpful.

AFAICT, sharing data is not part of the documented API. It would seem that using the API you can gather file sizes, but not whether a folder is shared nor with whom. I agree it would be a nice feature.

Further research has revealed that this is in fact NOT in the API yet, but they are actively working on it.
There's hope then as its going to be a great admin feature when managing large dropbox rollouts.
