acd_cli provides a command line interface to Amazon Drive and allows Unix users to mount their drive using FUSE for read and (sequential) write access. It is currently in beta stage.
Node Cache Features¶
- local caching of node metadata in an SQLite database
- addressing of remote nodes via a pathname (e.g.
- file search
- tree or flat listing of files and folders
- simultaneous uploads/downloads, retry on error
- basic plugin support
- upload/download of single files and directories
- streamed upload/download
- folder creation
- moving/renaming nodes
CLI Usage Example¶
In this example, a two-level folder hierarchy is created in an empty drive.
Then, a relative local path
local/spam is uploaded recursively using two connections.
$ acd_cli sync Getting changes... Inserting nodes.. $ acd_cli ls / [PHwiEv53QOKoGFGqYNl8pw] [A] / $ acd_cli mkdir /egg/ $ acd_cli mkdir /egg/bacon/ $ acd_cli upload -x 2 local/spam/ /egg/bacon/ [################################] 100.0% of 100MiB 12/12 654.4KB/s $ acd_cli tree / egg/ bacon/ spam/ sausage spam [...]
The standard node listing format includes the node ID, the first letter of its status and its full path. Possible statuses are “AVAILABLE” and “TRASH”.
It is not possible to upload files using Python 3.2.3, 3.3.0 and 3.3.1 due to a bug in the http.client module.
- the current upload file size limit is 50GiB
- uploads of large files >10 GiB may be successful, yet a timeout error is displayed (please check the upload by syncing manually)
- storage of node names is case-preserving, but not case-sensitive (this should not concern Apple users)
- it is not possible to share or delete files
- Appspot OAuth proxy switch
--remove-source-filesargument to upload action
--timesargument to download action for preservation of modification times
