api update auth endpoints to use new API Sep 29, 2018
transport move user agent string to a const Oct 6, 2018



Warning: If you installed rmapi before (October 1, 2018), you will need to install the latest version, otherwise rmapi will fail to authenticate after the changes in the server API that were introduced in September 28, 2018.

rMAPI is a Go app that allows you to access the ReMarkable Cloud API programmatically.

You can interact with the different API end-points through a shell. However, you can also run commands non-interactively. This may come in handy to script certian workflows such as taking automatic backups or uploading documents programmatically.

Experimental: Apart from the interactive shell, there's some work happing to access the documents through a FUSE system. You can read further at the bottom of this file.

Tutorial on how to directly print to your reMarkable on Mac with rMAPI


From sources

Install and build the project:

go get -u github.com/juruen/rmapi


You can download an already built version for either Linux or OSX from releases.

API support

  • list files and directories
  • move around directories
  • download a specific file
  • download a directory and all its files and subdiretores recursively
  • create a directory
  • delete a file or a directory
  • move/rename a file or a directory
  • upload a specific file
  • live syncs

Shell ergonomics

  • autocomplete
  • globbing
  • upload a directory and all its files and subdirectories recursively


Start the shell by running rmapi

List current directory

Use ls to list the contents of the current directory. Entries are listed with [d] if they are directories, and [f] if they are files.

Change current directory

Use cd to change the current directory to any other directory in the hiearchy.

Upload a file

Use put path_to_local_file to upload a file to the current dirctory.

You can also specify the destination directory:

put book.pdf /books

Recursively upload directories and files

Use mput path_to_dir to recursively upload all the local files to that directory.

E.g: upload all the files

mput /Papers

Console Capture

Download a file

Use get path_to_file to download a file from the cloud to your local computer.

Recursively download directories and files

Use mget path_to_dir to recursively download all the files in that directory.

E.g: download all the files

mget .

Create a directoy

Use mkdir path_to_new_dir to create a new directory

Remove a directory or a file

Use rm directory_or_file to remove. If it's directory, it needs to be empty in order to be deleted.

You can remove multiple entries at the same time.

Move/rename a directory or a file

Use mv source destination to move or rename a file or directory.

Stat a directory or file

Use stat entry to dump its metadata as reported by the Cloud API.

Run command non-interactively

Add the commands you want to execute to the arguments of the binary.

E.g: simple script to download all files from the cloud to your local machine

$ rmapi mget .

rMAPI will set the exit code to 0 if the command succeedes, or 1 if it fails.

Environment variables

  • RMAPI_TRACE=1: enable trace logging.
  • RMAPI_USE_HIDDEN_FILES=1: use and traverse hidden files/directories (they are ignored by default).

Access documents through a mounted FUSE file system

We have started to add support to access your rM documents through a FUSE file system.

This support is very alpha and only a few operations are supported by now:

  • Mount/umount
  • Lookup entry
  • Rename
  • Rmdir
  • Unlink
  • Read files
  • Write files
  • Live update

If you want to give it a go, you can run:

rmapi --fuse-mount mount_point
