I've been using expression engine for 5 years now, but I am new to this forum, so hi everyone!

I was wondering if there is a way to use the dropbox chooser and/or google drive features inside the publish page of expression engine.

Had looked into devot-ee, but so far theres nothing for google, and for dropbox there is an addon but only to display dropbox files.

This will be really useful. I am needing this functionality currently for a site I am building.

Please let me know, if someone have a hint or have heard of something in this regard.

Thanks for your time

    i guess that would require a custom addon – Jelle Dijkstra Mar 10 '13 at 7:53
  • Hello Yuri, Thanks for popping in. Yes, but I thought there was maybe something out there some of you guys might already be using. I ll try to figure out how to build a custom app then. Thanks – Manuqc Mar 12 '13 at 0:57

  • Maybe there is a way to make that work with ee? – Manuqc Mar 14 '13 at 23:24

I've put together dropbox_chooser which is a fieldtype. At the moment, it opens the Dropbox Chooser and allows you to pick a single file (whilst multiselect can work, I'm not sure how to output multiple links individually in a template).

You will need an App Key from Dropbox.

I'm no developer, but I needed this functionality.
