proxy configuration - this is one Chinese users were waiting for:) - #50:

 

remotes' icon size option selector - rather self explanatory, isn't it?:

 

rclone extra default options for all operations (e.g. --fast-list or --no-check-certificate). Options specified here are used for any rclone actions - download, upload or remote listing:

macOS and Windows releases have new OS native installers:

 
 
Changing how files are signed

To limit clutter in downloadable assets section I am changing the way how I sign released files. You will find sha512sum.txt.asc file which contains sha512 hashes of all binaries and source code archive. The file itself is signed with my PGP key so you can validate that it has not been tinkered with and then use corresponding hash to validate binary. It provides the same level of authenticity and integrity checks as previous method.

This is old release!
The latest can be found here - https://github.com/kapitainsky/RcloneBrowser/releases/latest.

  • fixed Windows mount/unmount (requires rclone v1.50+)
  • Rclone Browser checks now for used rclone version (mount is disabled in Windows if rclone <v1.50)
  • added default download/upload folders - configurable in settings
  • added default download/upload extra options - configurable in settings
  • added available updates' notifications for both Rclone Browser and rclone - can be turned on/off in settings
  • all mount options are configurable via settings - generic "rclone mount remote local" is used without any options specified
  • default mount option (in settings) is "--vfs-cache-mode writes"
  • Google Drive with "shared with me" option on is always mounted as read-only
  • Windows deployment includes now all required runtime files for users without MSVCR installed
  • added ftp, MS Azureblob and Google Photos remote icons
  • modified main application window status bar to save space
  • released binary for Windows 32 bits
  • released binary for armhf 32 bits - for Raspberry Pi running raspbian
  • released universal AppImage version for most 64bit Linux versions
  • bunch of usual small tweaks and fixes

New options in Preferences:

New defaults are used for new transfers:

  • Source or Destination and Extra options fields are pre-populated with defaults from settings
  • the new icon allows to reset Source/Destination to default folder at any time (for subsequent new jobs last used folder is used)

When new version of rclone or Rclone Browser is available user is informed (once a day to make it less intrusive):

AppImage release

Download an application, make it executable, and run! No need to install. No system libraries or system preferences are altered. This is what new AppImage file format promises - https://appimage.org/
It should run on most mainstream Linux distros (Debian, Red Hat, Suse, Fedora, Arch, etc.)

Rclone Browser latest release now also contains AppImage version.

What to do:

Download rclone-browser AppImage:
wget https://github.com/kapitainsky/RcloneBrowser/releases/download/1.6.0/rclone-browser-1.6.0-5db8842-x86_64.AppImage

Make it executable:
chmod a+x rclone-browser-1.6.0-5db8842-x86_64.AppImage

and you can run it.

If it works well I might move in the future for AppImage only releases for Linux. I would appreciate your comments.

Known issues

This version can crash unexpectedly if very old version of rclone itself is used (1.3x or older). It will be fixed in the next release of Rclone browser.
Regardless I would advice to upgrade rclone - it is now 1.50.1 and a lot of improvements have been made in the meantime.

  • Windows only update - includes all required MSVC runtime dll files. If your 1.5.2 works don’t bother. This release is for few unlucky guys without latest Microsoft runtime installed.

For macOS and Linux Rclone Browser 1.5.2 is the latest version available.

Known issues:

Unmounting drives on Windows is broken (mounting works).
This issue is related to lack of API on Windows version of rclone/WinFsp to unmount drives. The issue has been fixed in rclone and as soon as they release it in production Rclone Browser will be updated to use new API call.

  • code clean-up - clean compilation with -Werror enabled, GCC8 compilation fixed
  • add tooltips showing rclone options used to all transfer window options
  • Google "drive shared with me" caused multiple issues - now all should work
  • as always small cosmetic UI improvements - still plenty to do but core functionality was first

This version at last fixes most annoying issues I experienced since I forked it. I would appreciate any comments and suggestions. It is not very easy to test this across all three operating systems. No software is bug free and it can be fix only when issues are reported.

I also started wiki where I will post some useful information, tips and tricks etc.

All released binaries are signed with my PGP key.

Known issues:

  • unmounting drives on Windows is broken (mounting works). This issue is related to lack of API on Windows version of rclone/WinFsp to unmount drives. I have raised this issue with rclone developer and hopefully it will change in the future but for time being I would advice to use command line to mount drives on Windows.

  • after task edit initiated by double click main window does not get proper focus back and subsequent Run click might lead to wrong task execution. For time being I disable double click edit - until proper fix is produced.

I have looked at the original repo and found that its author created some nice code to add tasks but never released it. I have picked it up. Fixed few issues and now am happy to present updated rclone-browser to others with following improvements:

  • tasks - jobs can be saved/edited/run/deleted. No need creating the same job again and again.
  • on Google drive DriveSharedWithMe can be mounted to local filesystem
  • DriveSharedWithMe checkbox is now disabled for non Google destinations - it is Google only feature and turning it on for other destinations does not make sense - could even crash the browser
  • verbose option is now always on and has been removed from UI - which means that stats will be always displayed. No more wondering how long it is going to take for some long job to finish
  • fixed an issue with local remote on Windows when local drive content was not properly displayed
  • replaced remote Amazon icon with generic S3 one. S3 became name on its own and almost de-facto standard in cloud access used by many rclone supported destinations
  • new application logo

Some screenshots with this release highlights:

All new screen to list and manage tasks:
alt text

Created job can be now saved for the future

Verbose option is now always on so every job will show stats:

S3 icon:

New application logo:

When tasks are saved configuration files are stored in the following locations:

for macOS:
~/Library/Application Support/rclone-browser/rclone-browser/tasks.bin

for Linux:
~/.local/share/rclone-browser/rclone-browser/tasks.bin

for Windows:
%HOMEPATH%\AppData\Local\rclone-browser\rclone-browser\tasks.bin
