This is a simple module for installing the Dropbox client.

Currently, it just supports the Debian $osfamily but should be trivial to extend by following these instructions provided by Dropbox. Be warned that it will simply install a shell of the client. Dropbox designed their client to be thin, relying on it to download the full software and configure it.

Use it by declaring the Dropbox class.

include dropbox

It accepts one parameter, 'manage_repo' which defaults to true. This parameter configures the Dropbox apt repository and key via puppetlabs/apt.
