Full Description



Create a container running the Dropbox client.

First start

First start the container with a console attached. The dropbox process will initialize the configuration and ask to be linked to an account.

sudo docker run -h dropbox --name=dropbox -v /dropbox/config:/home/.dropbox -v /dropbox/files:/home/Dropbox -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro nheinemans/dropbox

Start the container

After the first start, the container can be stopped and started without a console.

sudo docker stop dropbox
sudo docker start dropbox command

In order to check the status of the dropbox sync, and make modifications (e.g. folder exclusions), I've include the command. It can be invoked with the following command:
sudo docker exec -it dropbox


I'm in no way affiliated to Dropbox and cannot support its products. I just needed a working dropbox client on my docker based home-server.
