Cloud-based file management

Tiny Drive - a premium plugin to manage files & images.

Contribute to this page

Tiny Drive is a premium TinyMCE plugin for cloud-based asset management and storage solution. Tiny Drive is a solution for creating rich text by attaching and embedding images, videos, and other files in your document.

Drive presents a cloud-based asset management and storage solution that provides the ease of use of Google Drive without the server requirements of a self-hosted asset manager such as our own MoxieManager.

Getting started

Creating an account

If you would like to try out Drive and our Cloud-delivered editor, the first step is to create a free Tiny account. When you create an account, you are assigned an API key, which is required for the implementation of Drive.

The API key is also provisioned with a free 30-day trial of all of our premium plugins, with no credit card information or commitment required.

Configuring the editor for Drive

Once you have the API key, or if you are a current Cloud user who already has an API key, then you have access to Drive. In order to get the service up and running, you’ll need to complete a few more steps. See our documentation for more information.

We are launching the service with a complimentary 100MB of storage and up to 1 GB of bandwidth.

Security & performance

We know security is a primary concern when it comes to cloud storage. Drive uses an Amazon Web Services S3 bucket, the same storage solution used by companies like Netflix, Thomson Reuters, and Zillow. (You can read about Amazon’s comprehensive security approach here.)

As your assets are passed back and forth between your TinyMCE editor instance and the S3 bucket, Drive uses both your API key and a JSON Web Token (JWT) to authenticate each data transaction. Each Drive user will need to create their own JWT, and we walk you through the whole process here.

And to make sure your assets are delivered as fast as possible, we utilize the CloudFront CDN, which is Amazon’s global content delivery network, known for its low latency and high data transfer speeds.

For more information on Drive see our full documentation.

We also have a demo for you to explore the Drive capabilities here.
