Load gpx files from S3 or GDrive

Hi there,

i'm in doubt whether this will work - following the link doesn't download
the file (in the sense of a http GET) as it should, instead it shows
the file contents on an edit page... well, as said, just try it. :)

Anyway, don't remove the folder setting - the plugin will save diagrams
and track infos in that folder, so it should be there and also be writeable.

groetjes, Frank

Hi, this is an example file that is accesible by everyone

drive.google.com/a/h-dcn.nl/file/d/0B9OBNkcEDqv1NUhSdXpDbC1INkk


Do I have to remove the /images/gpxtracks setting from the module?

Hello,

the GPX files must either be stored locally on the web server (recommended)
or they must be reachable via a URL.

So, if they are accessible via a http://<something> request on Google
Drive or whatever, it should work. I have no experience with that, though...
Authentication could become a problem i would guess.

Why not just give it a try?

cheers, Frank

Hello,

Is it possible to load gpx files from external sources like S3 or Google Drive in stead from the web server??
