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.

Cool... I have not played around with the Dropbox api. but I had heard from several people that is it a very simple api to implement. I hope you can integrate it into your software. Thanks
