Tiny Drive .NET MVC Starter Project
This project will help you get started with Tiny Drive using .NET and allow you to play around with its features.
Before you start your journey with Tiny Drive, it will go a lot smoother if you have done these steps:
Login/register to Tiny Account
Get a Tiny Cloud API Key
Get a JWT Key
Store the keys temporarily somewhere as you will need to copy & paste them later.
These are the steps needed to get this project running on your machine:
1. Clone this repo to your local machine using
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:tinymce/tinydrive-dotnet-starter.git
2. Change the
The API key can be generated using the
API Key Manager Tiny Account page at http://tiny.cloud.
3. Create a
tinydrive-dotnet-mvc-starter/private.key file containing your generated private RSA key
You get the private RSA key from the
JWT Key Manager Tiny Account page at http://tiny.cloud.
5. Open the example project at http://localhost:3000
Implementing with your system
If your specific use case has not been covered by any of the sample dot net, java, nodejs, or php starter projects, some customizations might be required to be applied to implement Tiny Drive in the specific system. The JSON Web Token authentication solution would have to be tied to the login authentication of your system. This usually means integrating the JWT authentication to the existing session authentication so that users automatically login to Tiny Drive and your system.
Go through the following additional resources to figure out how to configure Tiny Drive with your system.
We recommend reading up and trying to understand how JWT authentication works. In order to implement Tiny Drive you need prior knowledge of JWT in detail, including how they can be used for user authentication and session management in a web application. There will be some coding involved on both the client-side and the server-side to configure JWT as per the instructions in this section.
We are striving to make Tiny Drive as useful and as simple as possible. For support related issues such as problems with JWT authentication and implementing Tiny Drive, check our help page or please contact Tiny Support.
