Python Datastore SDK beta 2

// By Guido Van Rossum • Nov 15, 2013

Update: The Sync and Datastore SDK has been deprecated. Learn more here.

Less than two weeks ago we announced a beta Python SDK for the Dropbox Datastore API. We now have an update to this SDK, 2.0-b2. We've fixed a few bugs, improved the docs, added a few API methods, and added two new examples (a command-line script to print the contents of a datastore and a GUI app written using the venerable Tkinter library).

The second example inspired us to add a new method, make_cursor_map(), which helps if your app has a background thread that calls await() in a loop and needs to communicate with your main thread (as the example does). We also fixed await()'s return value to match its documentation. :-)

Check out the new release!

Also note that the Python Datastore SDK is a superset of the core Python SDK. Once it is out of beta it will replace the latter, and you will be able to install it directly from PyPI using pip install dropbox. If you have any feedback, we'd love to hear from you on the API Development forum.
