Third Party Developer Tools

By

Today, we’re pleased to be launching the Third Party Developer Tools section of our documentation, which, as you can probably guess from the name, highlights third party tools that developers can use to more easily interact with our API. We really appreciate the work of the developers who have taken the the time to put these together, and we’re big fans of anything that makes it easier to build on Box.

On that note, here’s a little more information about the two tools we currently have listed:

Filepicker.io

Filepicker.io enables you to easily add widgets that connect to all major cloud storage services. The service offers both upload widgets, which allow your users to select a file for upload from any of their cloud accounts, as well as export widgets, which let your users upload files from your service to their cloud accounts, along with a robust and extensive API for web and mobile. The product can be customized to offer only the cloud services you select to your users.

Temboo

Temboo builds powerful code shortcuts called Choreos that perform specific development tasks for 100+ APIs, databases and more. Test Choreos from the web, automatically generate the code you need and then drop it into your IDE using their SDKs for Java/Android, iOS, PHP, Python, Ruby and Node.js.

We hope you’ll give them a try! Each company will be writing a blog post about their service, which will be posted on this blog on Thursday and Friday, so be sure to check back for those.

Finally, if you have a development tool that works with the Box API, we’d love to hear about it, so please shoot us an email at API@box.com.
