MEGA Sync Client

Easy automated syncing between your computers and your MEGA cloud drive.

This repository contains all the development history of the official sync client of MEGA: https://mega.nz/#sync

Supported Platforms

  • Microsoft Windows operating systems
  • OS X
  • Linux

Get the source

git clone https://github.com/meganz/MEGAsync.git
git submodule update --init --recursive

Windows compilation

  • Visual Studio 2010
  • QT 4.8
  • Qt Creator

1.- Prepare QTCreator to use the Visual Studio 2010 toolchain and QT 4.8 - 32 bits

2.- Clone or download this repo

3.- Create a folder Release_x32 inside the root of the code that you have just downloaded

4.- Download the required third party libraries from this link: https://mega.nz/#!YwEQzBCK!10kFLaIU8_yEL87Md_GowLdQLE1sxvM3yOngOrQy_Wk

5.- Uncompress that file into src\MEGASync\mega\bindings\qt

6.- Open the project src/MEGA.pro with QTCreator

7.- Select the folder Release_x32 as the target for Release and Debug builds

8.- Build the project

9.- Copy or move the .dll files from the folder src\MEGASync\mega\bindings\qt\3rdparty\bin to the folder Release_x32\MEGASync

10.- Enjoy!

It's recommended to go to Project -> Run in QTCreator and disable the option Run in terminal

OS X compilation

  • Xcode
  • QT 5.X

1.- Install Xcode in your system

2.- Clone or download this repo

3.- Download the required third party libraries and configuration file (config.h) from this link: https://mega.nz/#!G5xmTLZY!jB2LyuXRSNGmBo1djUNhRbvy_pa42aDZyhgaTK1PAlI

4.- Uncompress that file and move the folder 3rdparty into src/MEGASync/mega/bindings/qt/ and the file config.h into src/MEGASync/mega/include/mega/

5.- Run the script installer_mac.sh to build the project and generate the application bundle for MEGAsync. If you want to generate an Apple disk image (DMG file), add the flag --create-dmg. Build directory is Release_x64

6.- Enjoy!

Linux compilation


First install dependencies. e.g., for a debian/ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake m4 libtool qt4-qmake make libqt4-dev libcrypto++-dev libsqlite3-dev libc-ares-dev
sudo apt-get install libnautilus-extension-dev

Addition: for RPM based (e.g: Fedora):

sudo dnf libtool install gcc-c++ c-ares-devel cryptopp-devel openssl-devel qt-devel sqlite-devel zlib-devel


cd src
qmake MEGA.pro
lrelease MEGASync/MEGASync.pro

Note: when compiling for Fedora/RHEL/CentOS and alike, qmake and lrelease might be missing for qt4. Use qmake-qt4 and lrelease-qt4 instead. Also, adding -q to configure is recommended in order to download and build cryptopp for RHEL and CentOS.

Known Issues

For Solum, c-ares might not compile do to a CFLAG defined by gcc: -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2. This issue and its possible solution is described here https://github.com/c-ares/c-ares/issues/58 and http://ma.tc/ehuboqatec.md.
