I have a number of Manipulate[...] codes that I like to embed to my personal website. But I face a problem. Here is a simple example of what I do (my Manipulate codes are much heavier than this.):

  Plot[Sin[a*x]*a, {x, -10, 10}],{a, 1, 10}
          ] // EmbedCode[CloudDeploy[#, Permissions->{All->
               {"Read", "Interact"}}],ImageSize->{50, 80} + 
               ImageDimensions@Rasterize@#] &

This Code works as expected. However, when I use my Manipulate codes, after embedding it, Starting Interface message pups up and interface never starts. My questions are:

  1. Is there a space limitation in free account Cloud? If so, how can I bypass it by using Google Drive or similar accounts to save my codes there and link Google Drive to the Cloud?

  2. In several answers in this forum, there are few answers to the above question but I cannot understand it as it requires me to have specialized programming skill. Here is the link to one of the answers available in the forum:

    (The following Packlet is supposed to allow me to use Google Drive to save my Mathematica codes and run them in Google Drive)

       "Site"-> "http://www.wolframcloud.com/objectsb3m2a1.paclets/PacletServer"

After installing this Paclet, I cannot use it. Can someone be so kind to write a step-by-step how-to-use guide for this Packlet work?

    $\begingroup$ Embedding manipulates in sites has never really worked $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I would disagree a bit with @M.R. Embedding Manipulate has worked for me, but only when I have ensured that all of the data required for the Manipulate is explicitly included in the notebook. If the Manipulate needs to read a file on disk, it will not work. $\endgroup$ Sep 18, 2020 at 1:49

    $\begingroup$ Perhaps we need to wait the Mathematica's version of WebGL release. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Shredderroy graphics/interaction are simply too slow in the cloud to be professional looking, anything that's too memory intensive flakes out, very simple things are possible tho $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @M.R.: I completely agree with your point because simple Manipulates are working satisfactorily but large ones with large data retrievals from the Cloud simply fail. There is a video by @Vitaliy Kaurov showing how to embed Codes into Website but I cannot replicate it with my Manipulate. I hope Mathematica team comes up with a solution soon. $\endgroup$ Sep 18, 2020 at 14:20
