  1. Provide Dropbox and other online drive storage systems (google drive, box.net etc)

    It would be great if you could allow the user to login to dropbox, google drive, box.net, etc.. and allow us to pick a file to display on the browser from those online storage systems.

      Would it be possible to put these files in e.g. a Dropbox Public folder and use the public URLs? We’re not sure if this is more amenable than having ChromoZoom authenticate directly with all of these cloud services. With the Public URL method, there’s no concern that we would write to or delete files in the cloud. We will look into the APIs currently available, though.

      Edit: having taken a look at https://www.dropbox.com/developers/chooser, this might not be that difficult to do at all.

    • Provide a mechanism to save a session to collaborate with other people

      Implement the Session-style capability present in the UCSC genome browser...
      If storage is of concern (this could be avoided by allowing the user to login with online storage system credentials and saving the session there) - related to my other feedback suggestion )https://chromozoom.uservoice.com/forums/158554-general/suggestions/3891926-provide-dropbox-and-other-online-drive-storage-sys)

        I’m trying to think about the best way to do this. Is there any way that it can already be done using the “Link to this view:” link, assuming all your files being loaded from URLs and not your computer? Our main issue with saving the tracks themselves is that we are concerned we will rapidly run out of space without per-user quotas, which will require a lot of support overhead.
