Generates ncdu compatible json file for Dropbox

Project description


Generates ncdu compatible JSON file for Dropbox.

You can use this script (with ncdu) to visualize which files and folders are taking up all the space in your dropbox.


First, generate an oauth token from Dropbox’s app console.

$ ncdu-dropbox --token $TOKEN -o dropbox.json
$ ncdu -f dropbox.json

Caution: Due to limitations in Dropbox API, it takes about 10s to fetch the information of ~5,000 files and folders. So, if you have millions of files in your Dropbox, this script may be running for hours.
