Announcing the Box Sample Code Catalog

Box sample code catalog app view

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:

Featured samples

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. Box Skills bring machine learning right to your content in order to accelerate your productivity and business results. The OpenAI Skills Demo repository contains an example GCP function that accepts a Box Skill invocation and calls the OpenAI TL;DR service. Alex Novotny, recently wrote an insightful tutorial on connecting those two platforms.

2. Postman Collection

Get started using the Box API in just 5 minutes with our Postman collection. Explore a set of endpoints, start building custom integrations, and never miss an update. Thanks to the quick setup, you get a complete set of environment variables and pre-populated custom app authentication tokens. See the details in Rui Barbosa’s post!

3. Box PowerShell Automations

One of the usage patterns of the Box Platform is reducing manual overhead for repetitive tasks. If you’re looking for ways to automate actions like creating users or performing trash searches, check out Box PowerShell Automations by Kyle Adams.

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.
