Dropbox Screenlet is a desktop screenlet to monitor the current status of the file-syncing service Dropbox.

- Displays the output of the 'dropbox status' command
- Displays current quota and use of the quota
- Opens local Dropbox folder on mouse click
- Supports drag and dropping into local Dropbox folder (choice of linking, copying or moving)
- Default theme uses iconset from the Nautilus emblems

Currently the quota requires user-input rather than automatically acquiring it. If anyone knows how to get the maximum quota from the server, I'd appreciate knowing!

About Screenlets:

Screenlets is the name of both a set of independently-developed widget applications and the widget engine which runs them. The engine runs primarily on X11-based compositing window managers, most notably the Compiz (under Linux) architecture.

Until 0.0.14, screenlets were exclusively scripted in Python and drawn in SVG. Afterward, support was added for web widgets (widgets which are written in HTML, JavaScript and CSS, similar to widgets for Apple Inc.'s Dashboard).
