OTA from Dropbox

Postby JohnSmith1155 » Thu Jan 14, 2021 6:05 am

I have found a number of examples on the web that show how to do OTA (Over the Air) update for ESP32 using AWS, Netsons and other servers.

This is one good example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ck55tY7mm1c

I just wanted to know if it is possible to do OTA using Dropbox, i.e. when the ESP32 wants to get a new file it gets it from Dropbox?

Hi John,

you can use any webhosting/filehosting service that offers a direct link to the file (so no page with a download button).

It may be possible to do this using dropbox by using a direct link. However, dropbox will redirect you to the actual file which may not work with the OTA updates. Also I'm not sure if you can update a file on dropbox and have the same link for the download which the OTA update needs to function.
