Sharing Panotour to a Client

by LBernos » Sat Sep 24, 2016 12:02 pm

Hello!

I successfully built a tour via Panotour and our client wants to view it. I know there is a Panotour viewer but is there another way for them to view it? client doesnt want to install another app to view it.

can this workflow work?:
1. zip HTML file together with all the data
2. send via google drive
3. client downloads file, unzips file
4. opens html file on browser
5. (Hopefully) views tour

Hope someone could help.

Kind Regards,

Lino

If you dont have your own personal server, i suggest you to use Google drive.

Hi!

yes I have seen and read this one.. but as it also said, google drive stopped that service. Can you recommend a free web hosting service that can be used to this also? Preferably, with the same process as Google Drive. :)

Kind Regards,

Lino

Well.. As Annis added, Amazon might be an option. I really do not know.. There are many hosting options and some are not expensive.. Often your ISP provides a few few gig too.. I use mine often for showcasing VR Tours..

altervista is free and works fine. Limited space but for previews is perfect. ;)

Amazon AWS is pretty cheap. I use the command line tools (s3cmd) to upload a project...when we make updates to the project, the s3cmd allows for synchronizing only the files that have changed (granted if you change panos in the tour you'll sorta be back at square one).

(e.g. s3cmd sync --delete-removed ./ s3://bucket/folder/)

There are GUI tools for both windows/mac as well, but the command line is faster for me.

Some of the gui tools require confirmation to overwrite and delete and the command line was where I was born.

Amazon AWS S3 storage has policies you can create that will archive your old project data to less expensive, near-line storage as well as purge it after a specified number of days.

I use S3 to store our published projects and Amazon's CloudFront to serve them to our clients. We use a billing system (WHMCS) and have a custom script that will expire out the CloudFront storage when the project expires or no longer hosted by us.

Using S3 is also a great way to create temporary, time-limited links to give to our clients to view the tours. The link is encrypted using either the command line or sometimes for that BucketExplorer is faster for that purpose.
