Google drive client for gnu/linux
  17 reviews

Grive is a google drive (an online storage service) client. it allows synchronize your google drive files with a directory on your local storage from the command-line.

it automatically synchronizes your local copy of your google drive, adding or removing files from the online storage. it allows add new files on your local directory and them will be uploaded to google drive when it synchronizes.

grive is still in process of development. it will include support for auto-detecting changes on the local storage to force a synchronization and a daemon mode which will work on user space to have your local files always synchronized with your online storage.

Alternativa gratis y sencilla, la sincronización no es automática y sí el contenido del Drive es +2GB y con numerosos archivos tarda bastante.

Fonctionne bien. Dommage que la synchronisation ne soit pas automatique.

simple, efficient and so far bug free. can't get grive-tools to work on mint 17x but im fine with cli.

the principle is there, but for what it should be, it is a waste of time

I strongly recommend grive-tools as well (or possibly overGrive); both include grive with them and make management of your Google Drive much easier on Linux.

You will need grive-tools as well, to make this work perfect. Grive is only a commandline tool. Grive-tools gives you a nice GUI and setup a Google Drive directory in your home folder.

This out of date version doesn't work, but trying out a newer version seems to work alright. Hopefully the repositories can be updated.

Works only if installed from ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8. Immediately after installing and running "grive -a" without any warnings and questions itself silently upload half of my home directory to Google. Theft of personal information. Danger!

This unoffical g drive client works better than the official one (which doesn't even exist). It lacks automatic sync (use cron for that) and there is no support for google's office docs like word processing docs, spreadsheets, etc, but will sync pdf and multimedia files as well as many others..
