Dropbox Paper CMS
Jun 2019 - Jul 2019
Dropbox Paper CMS is an open source Node.js module I created to generate static pages in markdown for your website.

It uses Dropbox Paper as a backend CMS, so you can update content on Dropbox Paper and see the changes deployed to your site without writing any code.
One only needs to write documents in Dropbox Paper, and Dropbox Paper CMS will fetch documents in markdown, save them locally, then optionally update your CMS sidebar with new file paths
