Announcing the Box Sample Code Catalog
Looking for code samples or examples of implemented solutions is a substantial part of software development. That’s why the Box Developer Relations team is introducing a new section on our developer documentation site: the sample code catalog. 🥁🥁🥁 🎉
From now on, you can easily browse 70+ open source repositories in many programming languages. Find useful scripts, code examples, and inspiring use cases. We divided samples into several categories featuring tags like: API, CLI, Frontend, Mobile, Provisioning, Salesforce, SDK, Skills, UI Elements, and Webhooks.
Explore the capabilities of our Box Platform by browsing the code samples. Here are some featured ones that you might find interesting!
1. OpenAI Skills Demo
There has been a lot of buzz recently about GPT and integrating AI into many processes.

4. UI Elements Demo
Incorporate the power of the Box web app into your own custom solutions with Box UI Elements. In this demo app, you’ll see how to use a Box UI Element from within a React-based application.
React is not what you use? No worries; in my previous post, I talked about integrating Box UI Elements with Angular.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Check out the many SDK samples in plenty of programming languages. As you can see, the capabilities of the Box Platform are endless. We are constantly working on improving the sample code catalog and building new samples. We hope it will already help you get the most out of our solutions.
