Modx Custom MediaSource type - OneDrive

Hi All,

Do you know how I can create a new mediasource type to use OneDrive file storage as MediaSource, like it is possible with Amazon S3?

Thanks in advance!

Actually this page might be better

It’s a little more complicated than that unfortunately. You’ll need to create a custom media source driver. I’ve never done it myself but you may be able to pick this apart and work something out.

Thank you for your help.
I am trying to find a way to use fred with file picker and get it directly from shared folder of OneDrive to take advantage of embedded office online file viewer/editor. This would allow to not reinvent the wheel.

I will give this a try.
Many thanks for your tips!

I remember talking about this in the forums within the last year, the old forums but I can’t find anything good now.

maybe this will help, a bit.

I seem to remember that the googlecloudstorage extra hard codes the values for the media source, so it can be copied and change the values to the real media source. But I can’t be sure this is correct, it might have been a different extra…
