Google Drive enables web page creation and sharing
The announcement was itself an advertisement of the new change, as the actual page that offered the tutorial on getting your we page on Google Drive was hosted on the service itself.
The four-step process itself seems simple enough.
From the webpage:
- Create a new folder in Drive and share it as "Public on the web."
- Upload your HTML, JS & CSS files to this folder.
- Open the HTML file & you will see "Preview" button in the toolbar.
- Share the URL that looks like www.googledrive.com/host/... from the preview window and anyone can view your web page.
While Google Drive probably won't serve as a main web hosting service, it can prove useful as a way to show off design mockups or practice webpage creation projects for school.
The move should drive adoption of Google Drive even further, not simply as a file repository or document creator, but also a webpage host. - Rappler.com
