Share folders and subfolders with Dropbox in Linux

Dropbox is a nifty little application that lets you sync and share files on the Internet and between several computers. Want to send a movie to a friend? Use Dropbox. Want to have a common folder for pictures that you and your girlfriend can update on different computers? Use Dropbox.
The problem with Dropbox is that you can’t share entire folders. Only individual links. That’s where dropbox-index comes in. Download the Python script and use it like this to share an entire folder of files:

./dropbox-index.py /path/to/Dropbox/Public/folder
