    Just for the ones which are interested as @Underprivlidged ,
    I've wrote some security fixes and changed completely how the link has been generated.

    Hope someone could send me some feedback on what's could be better.

    Thanks everyone!

    Neat but a little bit bored appearance and register ? No, no thanks. I will stick with what I am having for my Switch. If it ain't broken then don't fix it. To be honest, I like a nice appearance one and yours doesn't suit me at all.

    Well that's just material UI. Nothing else.
    I don't know how much someone could be interested in a website which have to be used just for add a game to a list.
    Are there other way for designing a form :rofl:

    To be honest, I will keep my eyes on yours for fun and to see how much you can improve it that's all. By the way yours required register is not necessarily and I don't want that. It doesn't make sense, thought. Keep up the good work, thought!

    Mmm I don't think is possible. How can I let you see a list of NSP in your google drive without anyone access to it? It's not a registration, is just a username and password random for get it back on your switch.

    How does it work, does it directly install nsp from google drive without needing to download?

    Nope. It let you manage a list of drive links in a website (which is accessible from every devices) and you can install them directly on your switch from Tinfoil.
    You do not have to download them to your PC and mirror it to your switch.

    Long story short: It let you install any drive NSP inside your switch without having to add new file browser location every time.

    So, does tinfoil download nsp to your switch and install or it just install them through internet? My sd card is tight so the first one may not work.

    Can this be used with 90dns or will there be a throttle on speeds and incognito is recommended?

    That link doesn't work. You have to put invite links on "infinite". :)

    But to answer the question: Since Tinfoil (and HBG shop which is a fork of that) install any games larger than 4 GB on FAT32 just fine, I'd say, it's an on-the-fly install and it doesn't download it before.
    Or even if it does, it is separated into chunks.
    But I'm sure @blawar can answer this within a second.

    Also since HBG shop is technically Tinfoil, this should work in HBG shop as well. Did anyone try yet?
    Would be nice to add things to it, that are not present in HBG shop.

    I don't know what's going on now but it automatically renames my added game.
    Started today creating an account and adding ARMS to it. Named it "ARMS" and it appeared in the list just fine.
    Now I want to add Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker but whatever I do and whichever browser I use, it always removes all white spaces and puts an ".nsp" at the end.
    Why?

    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker turns into CaptainToad:TreasureTracker.nsp
    Captain Toad Treasure Tracker
    turns into CaptainToadTreasureTracker.nsp

    Edit: Oh it automatically added ".nsp" to ARMS as well.
    I don't care as much about the .nsp as for the white spaces. Can you re-enable them?

    Edit 2: Also a way to rename already added items afterwards would be cool. ;)

    The NSP is not saved, it is stream installed.

    No problem at all with 90dns I think. All depends on where Google Drive server are located.

    Hi, that's a feature. I'm feeling like Apple a features hidden behind an error.
    It grab automatically the Google Drive name because leaving white space could potentially cause an error during installation.

    I see. Guess I can survive with that info, thx a bunch.
    Tried it with ARMS in HBG Shop yesterday and it worked like a charm.
    Btw while putting in the connection in Tinfoil/HBG Shop do we need to fill out the username/password fields as well or can they be left empty?
    I put in my tinson login and it worked. Didn't try to do it without the login data.

    Nope. You can leave them empty.

    This seems like an interesting project! I look forward to your future updates, security and the like. Just to confirm, it is not necessary that you put in YOUR (or anything related to your) Google Drive, just the Gdrive locations where files are hosted?

    Do you think you could get Tinson working with Goldleaf? I know Tinfoil (the .io version that everyone is discussing) is popular, but it and its author seem to be controversial for both ideological and technical reasons; my biggest concern is that it doesn't appear the up-to-date version of this branch is open source. The option to work with Goldleaf instead would be greatly beneficial to many users. I'm not sure what changes need to be made on Tinson's side or if something needs to be added to Goldleaf, but if the latter is necessary perhaps its author will weigh in. In any case, an interesting little project indeed, keep up the good work!

    No, you can put in any Google Drive link that is sharable but keep in mind that "more or less public links" often are restricted since they've been downloaded too many times.
    So creating (free) Google accounts and copying over the NSPs to your drive to install them from their is the better option.
    My tip: Get a 1 $ Unlimited Account from ebay (they might get nuked after some time though but it's worth the dollar).
    Otherwise consider getting a GSuite Business accuont for 10 $ / month and use it for other things as well (Movies, TV shows for KODI and so on).

    Edit: It's up to Goldleaf to support Tinson, not vice versa. However blawar is pretty fast with new Tinfoil releases and if you don't wanna change your Atmosphère/KOSMOS setup, there's a modded NRO for that.

    Thanks a lot! I really appreciate this.
    Unfortunately GoldLeaf must add a feature for support Tinson and, generally, everything which download directly from a link.
    I've already wrote to the dev some time ago but I've not received any response. Hope he will read this and start a little collaboration.

    Thanks again :)
