dropbox-sync

A custom two-way Dropbox syncing application designed specifically for Docker environments.

You can find an auto-deployed image using the command docker pull electroid/dropbox.

Problem

Currently, in order to deploy Dropbox into a Docker environment, you need to manually configure the entire host machine. Now, you can provision a Dropbox container with just an access token.

Build

You will need a recent version of JDK 8 as well as Maven installed on your computer. To build the program, just run mvn clean install and the jar should appear at target/dropbox-sync-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar. After building is complete, you may also create a Dockerfile using the command docker build -t dropbox .

If you want your image to auto deploy you can set up a container builder to listen to changes in your Github repository. When setting up, you must reference the build.yml file in the repository, so the build program knows how to create your grc.io/$PROJECT_ID/dropbox image.

Setup

Each container requires three environment variables to be defined:

  1. DROPBOX_FOLDER_LOCAL (optional, "/dropbox")
  2. DROPBOX_FOLDER_REMOTE (optional, "")
  3. DROPBOX_OAUTH_TOKEN (required)

Deployment

Here is an example of running a solo container using Docker:

docker run --volume=your_own_host_path:$DROPBOX_FOLDER_LOCAL gcr.io/$PROJECT_ID/dropbox:master

Here is an example of a StatefulSet deployment using Kubernetes:

apiVersion: apps/v1
kind: StatefulSet
metadata:
  name: dropbox
spec:
  serviceName: dropbox
  selector:
    matchLabels:
      role: dropbox
  template:
    metadata:
      labels:
        role: dropbox
    spec:
      containers:
        - name: dropbox-sidecar
          image: gcr.io/$PROJECT_ID/dropbox:master
          envFrom:
            - secretRef:
                name: dropbox-secret
          resources:
            requests:
              cpu: 100m
              memory: 200Mi
            limits:
              cpu: 100m
              memory: 200Mi
          volumeMounts:
            - name: dropbox
              mountPath: /dropbox:rw
      volumes:
        - name: dropbox
          hostPath:
            path: /dropbox
