Allow interacting with folders by name, implicit creation
As a way to help developers reduce the API requests you just so love to throttle, it'd be great if you allow us to create multiple folders at once and reference them by name, not ID.
For example, if I want to create 'My Photos/Pictures/Family/2014/01/24/my cat.jpg', I have to do a lookup for 'My Photos' to grab the ID, then I have to create the Pictures folder, then Family etc. etc.
In total, creating a file in such a position requires a substantial number of requests where it shouldn't.
This should really be possible with a single POST/PUT request.
Our new OneDrive API allows this, you can use path addressing to create files or folders, and we implicitly create the necessary parent folders. See more at http://aka.ms/onedriveapi
Awesome, love the new API a lot ! :)
Is there documentation on the rate limits? I came here from the SO post below. I'd love to be able to sync my dropbox (which annoys me no end) to my OneDrive.
