Get Dropbox comments

The comment feature is very handy on dropbox documents, but there is no functionality to export them, and no API to use them. Fortunately, it seems it exists an undocumented /comments2/list_comments API. I made a proof of concept of this API to get the ability to exports comments.

The HTML dropbox application uses a /comments2/list_comments API that gives us what we want. You need a proper authentication and the id of the file you want to see.

The application is very straight forward, uses the Dropbox Chooser to pick a file and allow the user to download comments. Below it a screenshot and here is the github repository with full source code and some documentation : https://github.com/rpeyron/dropbox-comments-downloader
