Import to Slideshare, Google OAuth2 Pains and Misc Supporting tagline
I completed the complete UI flow for importing to SlideShare http://www.slideshare.net . The UI flow is like this :(I will be referring to the user as he henceforth) 1. User logs in to Connexions http://www.cnx.org. To import a slide from his desktop he is directed to the http://www.cnx.org/slideshare_importer page.
- User can choose from PPT/PPTX/ODT presentation from his workstation and click ‘Import’ . The presenation will get deposited in Connexions and will be queued for Conversion at SlideShare.
- As SlideShare processes Slideshows in batches, there is generally a lag of 20 minutes before the SlideShow get s converted at the SLideSHare End. The view looks like this :
The user can click on Refresh Status to check if the slideshow has been converted
- Once the Slideshow conversion is complete, it appears on the page as an oembed iframe and a download link to download the original slides appear near it
The full code that got it working is here : https://gist.github.com/2881036
The other Challenge was to do similar stuff for Google Presentatios :
I am just writing the code for it , will update this post later to talk about the logic(I have it on a different workstation and forgot to git add it :p): https://gist.github.com/288107
