Create Dropbox Links from Alfred is broken

Recommended Posts

Anyone got a working Dropbox link workflow? The one I've been using has broken and all the others seem broken. But this seems like a thing most Alfred users would use all the time and I don't see any posts about it here, so maybe it's just me?

 

This is the workflow I had been using

Now I get the error "No module named idna" ... I tried manually installing idna but that doesn't help.

 

Ryan, the author, doesn't post his contact info on his blog so I'm not sure how to contact him. Any help would be much appreciated!

I’d bet this action is way less common than you think. Most users don’t need to send files to others that often. When they do, many opt for an alternative other than consuming space on Dropbox indefinitely.

It might be, but it might also be that something on Dropbox’s API has changed and that broke the Workflows that were using it. The Worklfow you linked to is a few years old and Dropbox has been making changes recently, so that’s a possibility.

Have you tried contacting any of the others? Linking to them here at the very least might help, as we might recognise an author.
