    Dropbox gallery exporter

    Hello all

    Would anyone be interested in helping me test a little web app I'm working on?

    It's a Dropbox gallery exporter, so you will need a Dropbox account.

    Some technical details: The app requires full Dropbox access, but this is only to get a list of folders and navigate through them. No files are stored on my server, everything is done through Dropbox and your browser. The whole things is done in javascript/jQuery using the "official" javascript implementation of the Dropbox API (https://www.dropbox.com/developers/core/sdk).

    Usage: After logging into Dropbox and connecting the app, choose a folder which has images you want to export. You can either save the gallery inside the app's folder in your Dropbox (you can export multiple galleries with generic names gallery.html gallery(1).html gallery(2).html etc) or download the HTML file directly from Dropbox.

    The app is in a pretty early stage, but I would like to start getting feedback and make sure the core of the app is working. I plan to add customization options for the gallery, different styles etc.

    If you prefer, you can send me any feedback and suggestion to stefan@fourtonfish.com (there is also a contact link on the app page).

    Thanks a lot

    I have one issue reported, don't have much details yet though. User is getting an error message saying "The file or folder you tried to access is not in the user's Dropbox".

    I assume this happens when the gallery download is initiated. I will be adding more descriptive error messages.

    I fixed a major issue when creating gallery files and added a contact box.

    Still nobody interested?

    I'm also interested in getting feedback on the design.

    I'm thinking about adding thumbnails of images in the folder browser, so the user knows what he or she is working with. I am also not sure where the "use this folder/go up" links should show...

    Maybe something like this would look better?
