File Previews - what file types are supported

Hi,
Hopefully a quick question - when I share a file / bucket, when it opens, the preview is shown on the left hand which is great for media files.

Just wondering if there is a list of what file types will preview? I’d like to use a txt file (or other extremely basic text doc to help describe some of the bucket content) and have it preview without needing to download it.

Any ideas?

Thanks

I think this is the list of extensions that will preview: gateway-mt/single-object.html at 37230a8f7fa92177e051c2410ad20c43ec021b00 · storj/gateway-mt · GitHub

‘pdf’ ‘bmp’, ‘svg’, ‘jpg’, ‘jpeg’, ‘png’, ‘ico’, ‘gif’, ‘m4v’, ‘mp4’, ‘webm’, ‘mov’, ‘mkv’, ‘mp3’, ‘wav’, ‘ogg’

Would a pdf work for you? Unfortunately I’m currently having trouble with pdf previews except in safari, we’ll look into that.

Another option would be to use a html file served from your bucket Host a Static Website with the Uplink CLI and Linksharing Service - Storj DCS Docs

Thanks - PDF preview would be perfect. As you say it’s not currently working for me but once it’s sorted it’ll be exactly right.
Thanks again
