Connecting Shaderific to Dropbox

If you want to exchange shaders, objects and textures with your desktop or laptop computer you have the option to connect Shaderific to your Dropbox account.

The first thing you need to do is to open the settings menu in the editor and tap on the Link Dropbox item.

After sucessfully linking Shaderific to your Dropbox account 4 things have happened:

  1. A new folder has been created in your Dropbox with the path /Dropbox/Apps/Shaderific. The files you put in this folder are visible to Shaderific and can be imported if they have the right file format. All export operations done with Shaderific upload the resprective files to this folder, too.
  2. The Resources menu in the editor has now a new Dropbox section with three items that allow you to import shaders, objects and textures from your Dropbox folder.
  3. The Shaders menu in the Local section allows now to upload shaders to your Dropbox when you switch to editing mode. You just need to select the resprective shaders and tap the export button.
  4. The Objects menu in the Local section allows now to upload objects to your Dropbox when you switch to editing mode. The objects are exported as C header files that can be linked to your own development projects. This functionality is only available for your own (previously imported) objects.
