Grive is a Google Drive (online storage service) client for GNU/Linux systems.
It allows the synchronization of all your files on the cloud with a directory of your choice and the upload of new files to Google Drive.
The options are as follows:
- -a, --auth
Requests authorization token from Google
- -d, --debug
Enable debug level messages. Implies -V
Only detect which files need to be uploaded/downloaded, without actually performing changes
- -f, --force
Forces grive to always download a file from Google Drive instead uploading it
- -u, --upload-only
Forces grive to not download anything from Google Drive and only upload local changes to server instead
- -n, --no-remote-new
Forces grive to download only files that are changed in Google Drive and already exist locally
- -h, --help
Produces help message
- --ignore <perl_regexp>
Ignore files with relative paths matching this Perl Regular Expression.
- -l <filename>, --log <filename>
Write log output to <filename>
- --log-http <filename_prefix>
Log all HTTP responses in files named <filename_prefix>YYYY-MM-DD.HHMMSS.txt for debugging
Create new revisions in server for updated files
- -p <wc_path>, --path <wc_path>
Use <wc_path> as the working copy root directory
- -s <subdir>, --dir <subdir>
Sync a single <subdir> subdirectory. Internally converted to an ignore regexp.
- -v, --version
Displays program version
- -P, --progress-bar
Print ASCII progress bar for each downloaded/uploaded file.
- -V, --verbose
Verbose mode. Enables more messages than usual.
You may create .griveignore in your Grive root and use it to setup exclusion/inclusion rules.
Rules are similar to Git's .gitignore, but may differ slightly due to the different implementation.
- lines that start with # are comments
- leading and trailing spaces ignored unless escaped with \
- non-empty lines without ! in front are treated as "exclude" patterns
- non-empty lines with ! in front are treated as "include" patterns and have a priority over all "exclude" ones
- patterns are matched against the filenames relative to the grive root
- a/**/b matches any number of subpaths between a and b, including 0
- **/a matches `a` inside any directory
- b/** matches everything inside `b`, but not b itself
- * matches any number of any characters except /
- ? matches any character except /
- .griveignore itself isn't ignored by default, but you can include it in itself to ignore
