box-linux-sync - A naïve Box.com Linux Client

An unofficial attempt to create a Linux synchronization client because Box.com does not provide one.

NOTICE

If your Box sync stopped working please open your /etc/fstab file and update the WebDav URL from https://www.box.com/dav to https://dav.box.com/dav.

Box.com blog post:

On November 15, 2013, we will be transitioning from the current WebDav (https://www.box.com/dav) to a new version (https://dav.box.com/dav) that provides added stability and performance improvements. Please change the URL in any internal apps before November 15 to ensure your users can continue accessing content via WebDav.

Overview

File synchronization is currently done using the WebDAV interface provided by Box.com. There is also a Python API available but I haven't started to mess with it.

Requirements

  • Python 2.7 and up (may work on earlier versions, haven't tested).
  • Davfs2. To install it use:
    • Debian, Ubuntu: apt-get install davfs2
    • Red Hat, SuSE, Fedora: yum install davfs2
    • Gentoo: emerge davfs2
    • ArchLinux: pacman -S davfs2

Installation

$ cd ~/path/of/your/choice
$ git clone git://github.com/noiselabs/box-linux-sync.git

Installation via Pip is not currently available. Let's wait for a proper release, OK?.

Usage

Check environment and setup box-sync and it's dependencies:
$ cd ~/path/to/box-linux-sync/bin
$ ./box-sync check && ./box-sync setup
Edit ~/.noiselabs/box/box-sync.cfg to fit your preferences:
$ vim ~/.noiselabs/box/box-sync.cfg

; box-sync.cfg
[main]

; Path to your Box sync dir. Use a relative path to place this dir
; inside $HOME or an absolute path. Default: Box
box_dir = Box

; Wether to use a WebDAV filesystem to synchronize your local and
; remote files. Default: true
use_davfs = true
Start synchronization via Davfs:
$ ./box-sync start
Stop synchronization:
$ ./box-sync stop
Send box-sync into oblivion when you get tired of it.

This just removes box-sync configuration files and the repository, not your personal Box.com files (unless you have configured the box_sync dir to be inside ~/.noiselabs).

$ ./box-sync uninstall
$ rm ~/path/to/box-linux-sync
