You're busy working on your projects, so let Zapier inform everyone when there's a new change to your repo. Once active, this Dropbox-GitHub integration will trigger with each new file you add to a Dropbox folder, automatically making a pull request on GitHub to communicate your new file.

How It Works

  1. A new file is added on Dropbox
  2. Zapier automation creates a new pull request on GitHub
