How to Use Dropbox to Test Install Scripts

Testing install scripts often requires a cycle of testing and modification to get the tarball just right.

Here's how to use Dropbox to test your install script.


  • You must have a Dropbox account in order for this to work.
  • You can test install scripts with any tool using this method.
  • You can not use a Dropbox url for an RSpec with Flack using this method. (However you can use the load from a file feature with Flack.)


  1. Install Dropbox for your system.
