Box objects can be used to work with files in a Box.com account.

Examples

// create Box object
var drive = Box.create();

// setup variables
var path = "/test/file.txt";
var content = "text to place in file";

// write to file on Box
var success = drive.write(path, content, false);

if (success) { // write worked!
var driveContent = drive.read(path);
if (driveContent) { // read worked!
if (driveContent == content) {
alert("File contents match!");
}
else {
console.log("File did not match");
context.fail();
}
}
else { // read failed, log error
console.log(drive.lastError);
context.fail();
}
}
else { // write failed, log error
console.log(drive.lastError);
context.fail();
}
