Source R-Script From Dropbox

A quick tip on how to source R-scripts from a Dropbox-account:

(1) Upload the script..

(2) Get link with the "get link" option. The link should look like "https://www.dropbox.com/s/XXXXXX/yourscript.R"..

(3) Grab this part "XXXXXX/yourscript.R" and paste it to "http://dl.dropbox.com/s/"..

(4) the final URL that can be sourced:

source("http://dl.dropbox.com/s/XXXXXX/yourscript.R")

..an example with this script stored at my Dropbox account:

source("http://dl.dropbox.com/s/c18lcwnnrodsevt/test_dropbox_source.R")
