It has been about a year since my first blog post about syncing Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage on Linux. The last time around, I used RCLONE, which required a more hands-on approach. I have found a new tool that I think is better because it can sync automatically in the background without scripting or manually hacking. It is aptly called onedrive that you can find on Github.
Its name might suggest that Microsoft finally ported their Windows and Mac clients to Linux, but, unfortunately, that is not the case. I would still like to see this happen, and if there is ever a time for Microsoft to do it, it is probably now.
Let me briefly explain how I have installed and configured the
onedrive tool to suit my needs. Thanks to good default values, it is
straightforward, and you might not need any configuration at all.
(I wonder how I managed to not find this tool a year ago)
