Google released clients for its Drive for many platforms: Windows, MacOS, Android, iOS and so on. Unfortunately, an official Linux client is still a missing part of the puzzle. That is why developers worked to create unofficial clients for Google Drive.
Grive was a solution for many. It worked on Ubuntu, Debian and so on... It was distributed in source code only, so you had to compile it for your own OS. Unfortunately, things changed in April 2015. Grive no longer works. The reasons behind this issue are given here.
Is there an alternative to Grive? Yes, there are several options:
- Insync. This is a paid option. I leave it for those who interested.
- Ocamlfuse. It is a heavy-weight solution. I tried it in the past, and was not 100% happy about it.
- Jdrivesync. This is the free option I've never tried before.
