Quick note: Backdrop now supports Basecamp Classic accounts! Your Basecamp classic accounts and projects will now show up alongside your newer accounts.
We’re using the wonderful dropbox-api gem from FutureSimple for accessing the Dropbox developer API. For copying large files, we needed support for the new Dropbox copy_ref method. If you need it, here’s our fork of the project:
Thanks to MyBackupBox for providing the solution for large file transfers on their blog:
I love Basecamp for managing my projects, but sometimes working with lots of files in Basecamp can be difficult. I wanted them available in my Dropbox, so I could see them wherever I happened to be.
I didn’t find any simple tools to do just this, so I built one. If you’re tired of downloading and moving files around, give Backdrop a try. Signup is quick and easy. After that, just one checkbox will get your files moved and keep them updated forever.
As I add features or have some useful tips and tricks about Basecamp or Dropbox, I’ll post here.
