Use your Dropbox account as the backup for your Roam files!


You could use the Copy Extension button below to individually install this extension. To install, just paste anywhere in your Roam graph and click "Yes, I Know What I'm Doing".

Manual Installation

If the extension doesn't work after using the copy extension button above, try installing manually using the instructions below.

First create a block with the text {{[[roam/js]]}} on any page in your Roam DB. Then, create a single child of this block and type three backticks. A code block should appear. Copy this code and paste it into the child code block in your graph:

var existing = document.getElementById("roamjs-dropbox");
if (!existing) {
  var extension = document.createElement("script");
  extension.src = "https://roamjs.com/dropbox.js";
  extension.id = "roamjs-dropbox";
  extension.async = true;
  extension.type = "text/javascript";

Finally, click "Yes, I Know What I'm Doing".


First, navigate to the roam/js/dropbox page to log into Roam with your Dropbox account. Once you grant RoamJS access to upload files for you, your credentials will be stored on this page.

Anytime you upload a file to Roam, the dropbox extension will intercept the upload and send it to your dropbox account instead.
