I have a Dash App that allows the user to select from a number data files - it obviously works on the local machine, but for deployment I’m not sure how to allow Dash to access the contents of any of the following: Shared Google Drive, Shared Dropbox Folder, AWS storage, something else? It should enable them to see the folder contents and select the data file they want. I don’t want users to upload files. Is there a way to accomplish this?
The pre-made Chooser component by Dropbox may be helpful for Dropbox integration. https://www.dropbox.com/developers/chooser
Google Drive makes a Picker that may be helpful. https://developers.google.com/picker/docs/#hiworld
All of these services offer APIs you can integrate with, S3 being the easiest. I’d just use the API to pull down the file tree and a download link for each of the files in that file tree. Then create some way for users to click on those links. Maybe a table of file name, location, size, and download link would work.
Thanks for the very prompt response. I’ll look into these methods. Surely, there would be a way to put these links into the dcc.dropdown
