Get file contents of several Dropbox files
Could anyone recommend a way to get the file contents of several files in Dropbox, without having to name each file individually?
I tried 'get file contents' with "*.md" as the file name (in Dropbox) but it didn't work.
You need a python script. Check out python functions
os.walk, or (better to grab your .md files)
glob.glob. You then need a loop to read the files that these functions return.

glob.globto find all .md files in a Dropbox folder, then has a loop to read them and join them together. You could use it as an example and modify it.
Thank you so much. That's just what I needed to get started.
