Syncany releases working alpha
« on: April 26, 2014, 01:15:00 PM »
Sorry folks, I committed a minor faux pas in that I replied in an old thread something I should have posted here.
Please ignore http://www.donationc....msg353960#msg353960 and read on:

Syncany is a cross-platform file sync application. It syncs folders between different clients using any kind of cloud storage. It aims to be a secure application to store files in the cloud and share files with others. No intelligent servers needed.


So basically, with Syncany I can finally use my Box storage on Linux with a nice GUI application, or other non-local/cloud storage for that manner.  It'll be nice to see exactly what it supports so far.  I'll report back...

Along those lines, I've been using strongsync and it works well.  http://www.expandrive.com/strongsync

Finally got around to trying Syncany last night. 
1. It's a command-line, not GUI. 
2. Currently has plugins for FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, Local and Amazon S3
3. I got it to connect to my Box account VIA WebDAV, but it didn't sync anything from my Box.com folder, though it did upload it's own database folders and stuff.

Well, it's Alpha, what can I say?
