Discuss Dropbox Developer & API
Hey @TaylorKrusen ,
I'm a designer working for a branding studio. We create custom WP websites along with brand systems such as logos & identities, packaging, photography & marketing materials, both print and digital. We feel that our current final delivery of all creative goods is feeling fragmented/dated. For example, we send them a Dropbox link with all their logos, photography and other brand assets. And then send them a website. As important as that Dropbox link is, it gets lost in emails and bookmarks and doesn't feel like one cohesive package.
Here's the scenario where we'd love to utilize a Dropbox Embedder.
This is something we would love to offer and would be a great asset for our clients. Would love to collaborate more on this.
Hope to see some examples of the Embedder soon.
This looks interesting!
We're having a case were this would fit really well.
Do you know if it's possible to control the "zoom" of the embedded content?
It would be awesome to have a property of the embed that makes content "fit" the embed, so that a PDF page is (most of the time) fully visible and then the user can zoom if it wants. Right now the content starts at 100% it seems, which makes it a little bit less instantly useful, especially on mobile.
@TobiasR Thanks for the feedback! The user can interactively zoom in/out, but there currently isn't a way for the app to specify a particular default zoom level. I'll pass this along as a feature request, but I can't promise if or when that might be implemented.
This embedder has come out at the perfect time!
Some points of feedback and questions:
Thanks, great work!
@clarel Thanks for the feedback!
The latest update to the embedder, that removed the previous "sidebar" and added a top-bar instead, pushes the zoom buttons outside of the visible iframe, making it impossible for users to zoom. Probably a bug! (Is there a better place to send this feedback?)
Hi, it would be amazing if we could remove the Dropbox public links. Even as a premium feature.
We have an app with a "Downloads" section that is protected for logged users only, and if we use the embedder right now, everybody would have access to the files through the Dropbox public links.
Kinda like Vimeo does it, where you restrict access of videos to a domain only and can hide the videos from Vimeo public listing. It saves the trouble of an implementation with the API to retrieve files and folders, since it's really easier to just embed the content.
The way we work is changing. Share and discover new ways to work smarter with Dropbox in our community.Sound good? Let's get started.
