Usage

This section summarizes how the dropbox-source can be used in various contexts.

Knative Source

The dropbox-source Kamelet can be used as Knative source by binding it to a Knative object.

dropbox-source-binding.yaml
apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1
kind: KameletBinding
metadata:
  name: dropbox-source-binding
spec:
  source:
    ref:
      kind: Kamelet
      apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1
      name: dropbox-source
    properties:
      accessToken: "The Dropbox Access Token"
      clientIdentifier: "The Client Identifier"
      query: "The Queries"
      remotePath: "The Remote Path"
  sink:
    ref:
      kind: InMemoryChannel
      apiVersion: messaging.knative.dev/v1
      name: mychannel

Make sure you have Camel K installed into the Kubernetes cluster you’re connected to.

Save the dropbox-source-binding.yaml file into your hard drive, then configure it according to your needs.

You can run the source using the following command:

kubectl apply -f dropbox-source-binding.yaml

Binding to Knative using the Kamel CLI:

The procedure described above can be simplified into a single execution of the kamel bind command:

kamel bind dropbox-source -p "source.accessToken=The Dropbox Access Token" -p "source.clientIdentifier=The Client Identifier" -p "source.query=The Queries" -p "source.remotePath=The Remote Path" channel/mychannel

This will create the KameletBinding under the hood and apply it to the current namespace in the cluster.

Kafka Source

The dropbox-source Kamelet can be used as Kafka source by binding it to a Kafka topic.

dropbox-source-binding.yaml
apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1
kind: KameletBinding
metadata:
  name: dropbox-source-binding
spec:
  source:
    ref:
      kind: Kamelet
      apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1
      name: dropbox-source
    properties:
      accessToken: "The Dropbox Access Token"
      clientIdentifier: "The Client Identifier"
      query: "The Queries"
      remotePath: "The Remote Path"
  sink:
    ref:
      kind: KafkaTopic
      apiVersion: kafka.strimzi.io/v1beta1
      name: my-topic

Ensure that you’ve installed Strimzi and created a topic named my-topic in the current namespace. Make also sure you have Camel K installed into the Kubernetes cluster you’re connected to.

Save the dropbox-source-binding.yaml file into your hard drive, then configure it according to your needs.

You can run the source using the following command:

kubectl apply -f dropbox-source-binding.yaml

Binding to Kafka using the Kamel CLI:

The procedure described above can be simplified into a single execution of the kamel bind command:

kamel bind dropbox-source -p "source.accessToken=The Dropbox Access Token" -p "source.clientIdentifier=The Client Identifier" -p "source.query=The Queries" -p "source.remotePath=The Remote Path" kafka.strimzi.io/v1beta1:KafkaTopic:my-topic

This will create the KameletBinding under the hood and apply it to the current namespace in the cluster.
