pyndexer is a python script to automatically index all of your public dropbox folders and place the index files in your dropbox. Like This. This allows you to create a web-based file directory for users to view your dropbox files instead of having to know the exact URL of a file.
First off, this how-to only works on Mac OS X or Linux. There’s a way to do this with Windows, but I’m just lazy and don’t want to learn it.
- Download pyndexer.py from the developer (from the terminal)
curl -O “http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/552/pyndexer/pyndexer.py”
chmod +x pyndexer.py
- Remove all ‘index.html’ files from your dropbox (from the terminal)
find . -name ‘index.html’ -type f -delete
- Run pyndexer.py (from the terminal)
- Enjoy your newly created public website.
