How to link data hosted elsewhere
Data can be loaded from a public github repository (or any CORS enabled link). Once the data is properly structured and configured to allow Cross-Origin Resource Sharing, simply add the file path to the “load data” textbox and click “Load”.
A sample data file can be found here in order to test the process.
To configure a github repo to host this data:
Create the new repository
Add the file you want to share
Go to settings and set the GitHub page to “Track Master”
After the repository is published, you can directly access the uploaded data file. (Note that the file path is case-sensitive)
Note that changes to dropbox folder sharing mean that it is not possible to load data from a public dropbox folder.
