The Box Ruby library is made for interfacing Ruby applications with the Box.net API. It is developed as an unofficial extension of the Box developer services. Using the API, developers may access Box web app content management features and extend them into their own apps. One can programmatically store, organize, retrieve metadata, and share files throughout the Box platform.
Box has introduced its upcoming new product Box Skills, a framework that makes it possible to take applications of machine learning to content stored within the Box platform. Box has also introduced the Box Skills Kit which is essentially an SDK that developers can use to build custom skills.
Dropbox has officially deprecated the Dropbox API v1. While Dropbox encourages developers to transition to v2, and start all new builds with v2, v1 will remain available until June 28, 2017. However, all new features will be added solely to v2. The deprecation includes both Core and Business APIs.
