Tip: How to embed entire Google Drive Folder into Webview

Just a quick tip. If you have an entire folder that you want to add to your app, set it to anyone with the link then you can either embed it as a Grid
https://drive.google.com/embeddedfolderview?id=xxxxxxxxxxxxxx-#grid

or as a List
https://drive.google.com/embeddedfolderview?id=xxxxxxxxx#list

HI
@Jaybird_Farrow link doesn’t work, i want to know if someone has tried to embded google drive folder on glide app. thanks

It’s not supposed to be a valid link. He is demonstrating how to structure the url that you use to embed the drive contents in your app using what I can only assume is a webview component.

You need to replace the ID portion of the url with the ID of your own google drive folder.

i’ve this message on webview

the folder is sharable

I just tested. It works.
Either you haven’t constructed the link correctly, or your folder isn’t publicly viewable.

the folder is public

Check if you have set the permission of the link to Anyone with the link.

And then copy the link and paste it somewhere and copy the ID of that link. ( between folders/ and ? ) For a example in the above screenshot that folder’s ID is after folders/ that start with 1j... and ends with ? and don’t copy ?.

Then paste the example link that @Jaybird_Farrow added in to a template column or a Construct URL column and replace the xxxx with that copied ID. Like this.

With Template column

With Construct URL column

And the result.

Hope I’m correct.

Thank you
