cloneIt is a free and open source command line cloud storage synchronization tool, which has been updated to version 1.56.0, which contains some important new features. There is a new backend, new commands including Docker serve, a redesigned configuration system, and a new librclone C library.
Rclone is a command line cloud storage manager.You can use it to manage multiple cloud storage providers from the command line, which allows the use of cloud equivalents of Unix commands, such as
tree, and many more.
You can use it to synchronize files and directories from cloud storage services (including directly between cloud storage) through optional encryption, use its FUSE to support local installation of remote storage, through HTTP, WebDav, FTP, SFTP, or DLNA, etc.
As for the supported cloud storage providers, Rclone supports more than 40 services, including Google Drive, Amazon Drive and S3, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Yandex Disk, NextCloud, Box, pCloud, etc. It runs on Linux, macOS, Microsoft Windows, *BSD and Solaris.
Although this is a command line tool, it does come with an experimental Web Graphical User InterfaceThere is also a third-party Rclone browser GUI.
The latest Rclone 1.56.0 comes with some new commands, including
serve docker Commands that implement the Docker volume plug-in API, allowing Docker to use Rclone as a data storage mechanism for various cloud providers, and
checksum It is used to check the commands in the source file according to the SUM file (MD5, SHA1, etc.).
Another change worth mentioning brought by the latest Rclone 1.56.0 is the redesigned configuration system. This is already done, so it can be used non-interactively via cli and RC API. It is worth noting that this change will affect all backends, so it may cause damage to the previous configuration! If something does not work, please submit a bug report.
This version of Rclone also includes librclone, which exports Rclone RC (Remote Control API) as a C library, allowing developers to integrate Rclone functionality into their applications. This even supports Android and Gomobile.
Other changes in Rclone 1.56.0 include:
- Uptobox’s new backend
- VFS: Add cache reset
--vfs-cache-max-sizeHandle with cache polling interval
- Local: Always use readlink to read the symbolic link size for better compatibility
- Drive: Switch to Drives API to find shared drives
- Dropbox: add
