Meet Excalidraw for Google Drive!
August 30, 2020|2 min read
I’ve recently discovered Excalidraw - it’s a great tool for creating hand-drawn like diagrams and I love it!
I’ve stared using it as a whiteboard to visualize some technical concepts I had in my head, and it turned out it’s easy to use and those drawings look really good!
One thing that’s really missing for me is cloud storage, since I don’t want to deal with all those files I’ve created. Ideally - I would like to integrate it with a cloud storage that I already use, like Google Drive.
Thankfully, Excalidraw is open-source and MIT-licensed, which means that everyone is free to use it’s source code!
So I’ve created Excalidraw for Google Drive!
- Go to Excalidraw for Google Drive and install app in your Google Drive.
You can now create and edit excalidraw documents right in your Google Drive!
Excalidraw for Google Drive is a browser app with no backend or database, so your files are as safe as any other files you store in your Google Drive.
There are some things that I did not include in initial release, like:
- persistent background color
- document preview thumbnails
Those features will be added gradually later.
