Dropbox: Discontinuing rendering of HTML content

    tomi71 it's from October 3rd.

    Ok.

    I wonder how one can register in bitballoon. Use persona? Use github? What?

    tomi71 select Persona and then enter your email address.

    tomi71 select Persona and then enter your email address.

    Thank you. I feel like an idiot now . Of course I should have at least tried it. I thought that one would already have signed in since it asked email to log in (and not to sign in) (it´s in finnish so I don´t know how to put it in english exactly).

    edit. Tried it, but file is too large error. So it might work only for smaller projects I guess.

    i tried neocities, you have to pay to support the offline.appcache file which I assume is an important file.

    That only handles offline support. If the file is missing everything will work just fine, except it won't load offline any more.

    Hmm, there must be another issue with neocities then because it always gets stuck on the loading screen. I tried it with a new project too. This is the downloaded site, does everything look fine with that? : https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/495 ... linkie.zip

    And this is the live site where it's getting stuck: http://plinkie.neocities.org/

    Firebase offers hosting on thier free plan:

    https://firebase.google.com/pricing/

    No ftp, it uses Node to deploy from your home folder.

    I,ve tested it and it works.

    They also offer file storage that you have access to in C2 ala Rex's plug.

    Have not tested completely but html will render.

    Thanks for sharing valuable information.

    Could you tell me more about how to host personal games using Node?

    I don't know how.

    First you sign up for a project: https://console.firebase.google.com/

    You have to do a little set up there. If you use Rex's plugs you will already have seen the process.

    There will be a link in the console for both hosting and storage.

    Here's the documentation for setting up Node. I think the console also walks you through it.

    https://firebase.google.com/docs/hosting/quickstart

    It's all done via the Node command line. You can even just copy and paste the commands, just ignore the $ part.

    The hardest part is finding your home folder. It's something like: C:\Users\yourname\public

    You just move your html5 game folder there, and type firebase deploy

    Then just go to your root in the console, and add a "/yourfoldername" to the url.

    Mine was:

    https://domonion-40b51.firebaseapp.com/Arcitakads/

    And this is the live site where it's getting stuck: http://plinkie.neocities.org/

    The live site looks like it's working just fine here.

    Ah yeah it's fine now...weird. I'll take a look at neocities some more then.

    I didn't know about Firebase. It's from google right?

    Well, I migrated to Itch.IO

    https://drzanuff.itch.io/

    Very easy to use. I just had some problems running the game on mobile in some old phones. But overall pretty good. It forces you to create a portfolio too!

    I don't know how.

    I just wonder when we'll see fallout from all the people migrating to theses other services.

    For services with a paid plan it's not a big issue, but itch, and git... who knows.

    I will say the pricing on Firebase is a bit dubious. The first tier is 25 a month, which is high imo, compared to Dropbox at 9, but the Blaze version seems doable with the pay as you go plan.

    It doesn't make much sense to do it like that, but ehh.

    I don't agree.

    Paid services might be closed one day. Therefor I don't think there has an immortal back-end service in the world.

    True. Parse would be an example, and Google is famous for dropping services.
