Dropbox API Uploading a file via curl


This uploads a file from the local path matrices.txt in the current folder to /Homework/math/Matrices.txt in the Dropbox account, and returns the metadata for the uploaded file:

echo "some content here" > matrices.txt

curl -X POST https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/upload \
    --header "Authorization: Bearer <ACCESS_TOKEN>" \
    --header "Dropbox-API-Arg: {\"path\": \"/Homework/math/Matrices.txt\"}" \
    --header "Content-Type: application/octet-stream" \
    --data-binary @matrices.txt

<ACCESS_TOKEN> should be replaced with the OAuth 2 access token.
