Loathe Latency? Updated JS Libraries and New Regions

Updated JS library URLs

We’ve switched to using a CDN to serve Kloudless JS libraries. While the old URLs work, you’re encouraged to switch to the new URLs for the File Explorer and Authenticator JS libraries.

Since a CDN optimizes for serving static files closer to your user, switching to the new URLs for either or both JS libraries will result in less latency to load the JS file. Reducing the bottleneck will give your users a better experience with the File Explorer and Authenticator.

New Regions Added

Kloudless has also added the us-east-1 AWS region in addition to us-west-2, for faster API requests as well as quicker downloads and uploads for your end users who are closer to the east coast. Sign up for your free Kloudless developer account to experience the speed yourself!

File Explorer Updates: Two New Ways to Access Files

Downloading files via File Explorer links

The File Explorer now accepts an option named ‘direct_link’. When true, the links created via the File Explorer will download the file for the user, rather than present a view for the file in the appropriate cloud storage service.

This functionality enables your app’s users to download and create local copies of the file — perfect for collaboration and file transfer use-cases.

Embedding links in web pages

Speaking of direct links, they can now be accessed with an “inline=true” query parameter that sets the Content-Disposition of the downloaded file to “inline” rather than “attachment”.

This is useful when embedding links in web pages, since you can display the content for your users directly, instead of through the cloud storage service.
