SynRam would like to share one latest update from Google via this blog. Google on Tuesday announced that it will allow Web developers to share hosted websites via Google Drive. All you have to do is store your HTML, JavaScript, and CSS files, and then share a link to your starting HTML file. This will also help in sharing the working website files preview to your clients.

Here’s what you have to do:

  1. Create a new folder in Drive and share it as “Public on the web.”
  2. Upload your HTML, JS & CSS files to this folder.
  3. Open the HTML file & you will see “Preview” button in the toolbar.
  4. Share the URL that looks like www.googledrive.com/host/… from the preview window and anyone can view your web page.

However, it’s a small update, but certainly a good one ways for Web developers. If you build or design sites and need to demo your work for clients, this should be a very useful way to show off what you’ve got so far.

Again, we don’t recommend using Google Drive as your main hosting service, but if you’re going for Google Drive anyway for saving and sharing your files, this added functionality can’t hurt. Because the company requires that you first share your files publicly, there shouldn’t be any privacy concerns here – nobody is going to see your website before it’s finished unless you explicitly give them the link.

Google’s goal here is of course to get more and more people using Google Drive over competing services. If your current cloud storage service can’t do this, we doubt you’ll switch, but if you’re already using Google Drive, you may find yourself using it more than Dropbox or SkyDrive.
