Access your Microsoft OneDrive files, Live calendars and contacts from Elgg

Last updated

This widget allows you to browse your Microsoft OneDrive directory structure. Before you can use this widget you have to setup a Live Connect App and get a Client-ID / Secret. For details on OneDrive SDK:

Specify plugin settings:

  • Client-ID: (your app specific client-id)
  • Client-secret: (your app specific client secret)
  • Locale: Your national locale setting en for english or nl for me being Dutch :)

Specify widget settings:

  • Folder ID: a valid object path
  • /me/skydrive
  • /me/calendars
  • /me/events?limit=5
  • /me/contacts
  • /folder.xxxxxxxxxxxx

Folder name: any name you like, its just a folder display name

Click on a folder name to go one level down, click on the folder icon to jump to the OneDrive folder itself.

Every user needs to have its own Microsoft Live userid. The widget just allows you to connect to Microsoft Live services using your userid and access rights. So you could create a special user account for your site that is just the provider of shared storage space, calendars and contacts. Then organize your shared data in directories, one for each group. Setup a Microsoft group for each Elgg group, add users and give the appropiate access rights to the Microsoft group on the shared directory. This approach allows to keep the ownership of the groups shared items to the group.

I contribute this code in the hope that others get inspired and help to further develop this great plugin. If you like the plugin please recommend so that others also know you value this.

Im interested in any one who is willing to help further develop this widget (and Google drive). Im looking for a solution to integrate Microsoft OneDrive and Google Drive into the regular Elgg mod/files system.
