      Whoops, I shouldn't have hotlinked part of the pdf.js src to github HEAD. I'm getting a JS error for PDFs now too.

    I really like this app! Very easy to use and can make things super easy to share. One feedback is to make the share url shorter like bit.ly.

      I like your suggestion for a URL shortener! Good idea.

  • contestant

    Neat! Great list of services you used as well.

    Pretty well executed. Plenty of services like this around though, also not sure why I would want to view a file after I selected it, usually you know beforehand what you want to share.

      Thanks for the feedback, Swaagle. The purpose of the file previewing is not for the uploader, but is instead for the people you share it with (who do not yet know the contents of the file). I didn't do a good job of explaining that unfortunately.

      Thanks! It actually supports a few audio/video formats with the HTML5 <video>/<audio> tag (MP3, MP4, WAV, OGG, OGV, WEBM), but it doesn't work too well cross-browser. This is definitely something I want to work on improving.

    Wow, that's impressive. Very cool improvement on file sharing and an amazing amount of work in a short time. Uploads of xlsx and js worked fine for me. Well done!

  • contestant

    Wow, you must have put some work into this. Kewl idea with the preview of the different file formats.

    Unfortunately uploading files didn't work for me (File too big). But the file format demos worked well.
