Getting Started

The project currently requires you to install and configure react and npm to run correctly.

Running the project through rclone:

If you have rclone installed, you can easily run this UI through rclone without any additional configuration.

Note: The instructions for installing rclone can be found here.

To run the web-gui, simply run the following command:

rclone rcd --rc-web-gui --rc-user=<user> --rc-pass=<pass> 

The web-gui should now be available at the url http://localhost:5572

You may have to clear the browser local storage if needed, after switching to the older version.

Alternatively, you can use the hosted version:

With every release, we publish it to github-pages. You can directly use it without installing rclone locally.

Head over to To login, enter the IP address, username and password of rclone rc server.

While running the rclone rc server, use the following command,

rclone rcd --rc-user=abc --rc-pass=abcd --rc-allow-origin="" 

replace the username and password with your liking. If you are not comfortable with specifying it here, use the .htpasswd option.

rclone rcd --rc-allow-origin="" --rc-htpasswd /path/to/.htpasswd


--rc-web-gui - run the web-gui

--rc-user - username to be used for login (Optional) default is gui.

--rc-pass - password to be used for login (Optional) if not provided, rclone will generate one for you.

--rc-addr - useful if you are running rclone on a headless machine, specify the private/public IP of your VM for rclone to bind to. (Optional)

--rc-web-gui-update - Force update web-gui to the latest version.
