Rclone browser (fork), Qt5 GUI for clone, Has been updated to version 1.8.0, has proxy support, can display a complete remote directory tree, can also create public links to easily share files, and more.
Rclone Browser is a cross-platform (Windows, macOS and Linux) Qt5 GUI for Rclone. Rclone is a command line tool for synchronizing (and mounting) from remote cloud storage services (such as Google Drive, OneDrive, Nextcloud, Dropbox, Amazon) Drive and S3) files, Mega etc.
This GUI can be used to simplify operations, such as copying files from one cloud storage to another or local drive, installing cloud storage on the system with a single click, and browsing the contents of various cloud storage remote servers in a tabbed interface.
|Rclone browser proxy settings|
The latest Rclone browser 1.8.0 adds proxy support. You can choose to use system settings for proxy from preferences, or you can use manual proxy configuration to set proxy
no_proxy (The last one is domain skip).
|Generate public links in Rclone browser|
Another new feature of this version of the Rclone browser is the ability to obtain a public link to a file so that users can easily share it. This is using new
Public Link Available buttons on the toolbar (when browsing the remote control).
|Remote directory tree|
The latest version 1.8.0 also provides the option to generate a complete directory tree overview, which can be used to view all directories in a remote directory without manually expanding each directory tree (it usually takes a while to load).
Now that there are many buttons on the remote toolbar (there are 2 new functions in this version), it is impossible to reduce the window width to a suitable size. I hope developers will do something about this in future versions.
