Question/Help - command line tool to upload/download cloud content

MOD EDIT: The "Tutorials & Tips" section is for things that work already, that you want to share with other members. Moved to "Basic Help & Support".
--------------------------------------------

Hi,

I am searching for a CLI tool to uplaod/download files to/from a cloud service. For example, I was looking at gdrive (https://github.com/gdrive-org/gdrive) but the verification process fails:

Sign in with Google temporarily disabled for this app
This app has not yet been verified by Google in order to use Google Sign in.

My requirements would be use a free service (no problem if the amount of information allowed and speed are low) and be able to use it by command line, to be able to integrate in other scripts.

I think there are several alternatives, but... what do you use for that?

Thx in advance

what files? most git websites like github, gitlab, are cloud services in there own right and "git" is the cli app you are looking for. Cloud is nothing but a data center somewhere, make sure you know where your data is being "housed".

Re: Question/Help - command line tool to upload/download cloud content

Gotta do it, a cloud storage solution ? What do I use, I try to use and enjoy very much when others use it too = Common sense. This is the tips,tricks and how-to's section of this forum dude. So try using common sense, give it a go, tends to work out pretty well in all things. There's only 2,3 or 4 other sections here appropriate to this type of discussion/question. Whereas this one very clearly IS NOT.

Ps, lol ... had to count, there's 6(poss more), so OP had over a 33% chance of closing eyes, clicking around randomly on the index pg and landing in an appropriate section. tongue YE GAWDS !!!

I think you just misread that.

Re: Question/Help - command line tool to upload/download cloud content

First of all, sorry for not put the topic under the correct subforum.

The git option is interesting, I would investigate if it suit my needs.

My concrete problem is that I have multiple machines where I do things (at work, at home, at my parent's house when I visit them, at my sister's...) and I carry a pendrive with the things I do. And yes, sometimes I forget the pendrive anywhere XD

Right now I am using Google Drive in the browser. And it would be faster and easier to use something in the command line.

Thx !

Maybe i did and maybe i don't understand the concept well, but it seems like odrive would handle security credentials like passwords and logins to the third party providers (access) and store them on their servers. I cant find mention of this, maybe someone who uses it can clarify.

github would be ok but the free accounts only cater for 1gb of storage and 1gb of bandwidth for any repo and only public repos, so if you have private info probably not a good idea unless you encrypt the files using p7zip or tar or something (i would encrypt files even if using google drive too). So it all depends on what files and what sizes you want to store in the cloud.
