Ideas and discussion about publishing and distributing your games

I may use BitBalloon as a replacement to Dropbox.

@rexrainbow - Nice idea of using GitHub.

It looks like right now new folders can't host HTML, but old existing folders can. I would guess this is Dropbox's way of phasing it out gradually without breaking too much at once. I would guess it is only a matter of time before they turn off existing folders too, so probably time to start re-hosting content if you're using that...

This is really annoying - I have some bug reports filed with browser vendors that use public Dropbox HTML :P

I just uploaded a draft of my game to itch.io today.

How do I put it on Facebook apps?

"As a result, we’ll soon be ending support for the Public folder. Dropbox Basic users will be able to use the Public folder until March 15, 2017. After that date the files in your Public folder will become private, and links to these files will be deactivated. Your files will remain safe in Dropbox."

Soon all the shared files like .capx examples in older posts will be made redundant. Not fun.

You can use Github pages and Firebase hosting to host your files. It's free.
