Dropbox and sprites in subdirs (ANSWERED)

edited July 2013 in Questions Posts: 90

One can store text data in a subdir of the Dropbox "Dropbox/Apps/Codea" directory. (Ex: "Dropbox/Apps/Codea/MyProject/userdata"--this works fine. The question is: is it possible to store sprites in "Dropbox/Apps/Codea/MyProject/progdata", and if so, how do you reference them in readImage()? I tried various combinations in readImage() like "Dropbox:spritepack:myprojectname:progdata:" and "Dropbox:myprojectname:progdata:" and they didn't work.

    yep it's possible ! but the syntax is : readImage("Dropbox:myprojectname/progdata")
    And you need to create directory in dropbox before and sync in codea.

    Hey, that works! Thanks.

    To make it clear for anyone else reading this, if you have a sprite at the Dropbox pathname:


    you specify it in readImage like this:

    img = readImage("Dropbox:myproject/progdata/sprite")
