Sometime, you have a huge data sets to transfer and you may not want to hold an active connection all the time. One solution is to use OneDrive especially if you or your organisation has subscribed to Office 365. You should have 1TB of online space.
Step 1: Install Dependencies
yum install libcurl-devel yum install sqlite-devel curl -fsS https://dlang.org/install.sh | bash -s dmd
Step 2: Git Clone the OneDrive Code
git clone https://github.com/abraunegg/onedrive.git cd onedrive make sudo make install
Step 3a: Authorize Microsoft to access your account
You need to authorize onedrive with Microsoft so it can access your account. First start by typing on the console
Step 3b: You will be prompted to visit the URL to get permission
Step 4: Log in to your OneDrive account, and grant the app permission to access your account
Step 5: You will see a blank white page. Copy the URL and paste it into the Xterm
Step 6: Copy the URL and paste it into the Xterm “Enter the response uri”
By default, all files are downloaded in ~/OneDrive and hidden files are skipped. If you want to change the defaults, you can copy and edit the included config file into your ~/.config/onedrive directory:
mkdir -p ~/.config/onedrive cp ./config ~/.config/onedrive/config nano ~/.config/onedrive/config
- sync_dir: directory where the files will be synced
- skip_file: any files or directories that match this pattern will be skipped during sync.
If I want to sync everything except Confidential and Personal Folders
# Directory where the files will be synced sync_dir = "~/OneDrive/" # Skip files and directories that match this pattern skip_file = ".*|Confidential|Personal"
Note: after changing the sync list, you must perform a full synchronization by executing
One Drive Service
If you want to sync your files automatically, enable and start the systemd service:
systemctl --user enable onedrive systemctl --user start onedrive
