Drive Cli

PyPI version contributions welcome License: MIT HitCount

Get the ability to access Google Drive without leaving your terminal.


Inspiration

  • Google Drive has become a vital part of our day to day life. As much as non-programmer use it, so do programmers in several situations,where we need not use git/github.

  • Drive-CLI is a command line utility tool for google drive which helps you access,sync, download,upload.. directly to your drive without leaving the command line. The best part being the commands are similar to git cli so that you can easily remember them 💆


Features

  • view-file :list your files, filter them by name,type.
  • clone :download file/folder from drive using sharing link or file ID and get it linked
  • add_remote :upload existing local file to drive and get it linked
  • cat :view files contents of text format without actually downloading them
  • rm :remove particular file or folder
  • ls :list put all the files present in the drive of equivalent current directory
  • status :list changes made to local files since last pull or pull
  • pull :get latest changes from drive to local files
  • push :push the changes made in remote to drive
