Sync your files and folders simply
Clone and run for a quick way to see ODrive (OpenSource Drive) in action.
- This is a GUI client for Google Drive on linux application based on the https://electron.atom.io/.
Supported Operating Systems
- Linux (most distros)
- Arch Linux (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/odrive-bin/)
sudo snap install --edge odrive
- Flatpak (https://github.com/flathub/io.github.liberodark.OpenDrive)
- macOS 10.9 and later
- Microsoft Windows 7 and later
The first thing you need is the source code, in your command line:
# Clone this repository git clone https://github.com/liberodark/ODrive
This will download all the source code in a "ODrive" folder in the current directory. Alternatively, you can download and extract the zip from github's interface.
The steps below (Setup, Build, Run) are to execute in order to ready everything.
This step is only needed once, in order to install the necessary environment on your computer for ODrive to run.
# Needed for electron 1.7+ to run, as it's based on chrome sudo apt install libgconf-2-4
Note: If you're using Linux Bash for Windows, see this guide or use
node from the command prompt.
This step is to execute every new version of the source code.
In the project directory:
Note: If you're using Ubuntu and you get an error message about a missing node binary, you may want to try this:
sudo ln -s `which nodejs` /usr/bin/node
If you are working on the code yourself and editing some files in
app/assets/, you will need to run
npm run webpack (or
npm install) for those changes to have an impact on the application.
In the project directory:
On Windows, you can make a
.bat file with
start cmd /k npm start that then you can double click to launch the program.
The launch-on-startup functionality is only available on bundled releases. See the Deployment section.
To make sure the code is ok and run some sanity checks on it:
There are currently three "release" formats supported: nsis (Windows installer) for Windows, AppImage for Linux, and DMG for Mac. You can generate them like this:
npm run release-windows npm run release-linux npm run release-mac
To create a different format, like a deb or rpm package for example:
npm run release-linux deb
sudo yum install rpm-build -y npm run release-linux rpm
The releases are generated in the
All formats supported by electron-builder are available, such as 7z, zip, tar.gz, deb, rpm, freebsd, pacman, p5p, apk, dmg, pkg, mas, nsis, appx, msi...
An appimage on linux already runs permissionless. Anyway, you can just do:
# Permissonless deployment npm run release-windows dir # or zip, 7zip, tar.xz, tar.7z, ...
This will create a folder in
dist that you can just copy to a Windows machine.
