  • Transfer all files from Dropbox to Google Drive / current solution?

  • Ask HN: Experience using your user's Google Drive instead of a database?
    Https:// is a very effective storage shim. You'd still want to limit supported backends to provide a smooth UX. There are binaries for the major OSs (including BSDs, Plan9, and Solaris). They have Android builds but they are not first class (yet). Unfortunately I do not see any support for iOS. - Source: Hacker News / 2 days ago
  • Configuring Pikapod to steam from Cloudflare

    It's better not to start developing applications for Linux at all (because you have shown many times that this OS is not important to you), just make a decent and documented API. Then all linux people will just use Rclone. Source: 5 months ago
