Got an idea for Dropbox? We want to hear it. Our team will review the top voted ideas, so share them here!
I would really like to see a client for the Raspberry Pi, or any ARM based client that supports the live syncing that dropbox does so well.
I too would like a client for the Raspberry Pi. Nothing fancy, a nice little CLI tool would be perfect.
@Ron K. There is a crude command line client for Raspberries.
until we get it, use the Dropbox-uploader that is linked in Dougie's link just one link above, it works acceptable.
I have used btsync, but prefer Dropbox. It's speculated Dropbox is creating a p2p option similar to bysync, it would be awesome if they took the opportunity to create a build for ARM to run via Raspberry Pi.
I agree: number of people using Raspberry Pi is increasing everyday, so the choice to not support this platform is really anachronistic.
Please deploy this client!
Same request from me. I now use multiple Raspberry Pi's in my daily life (soon to be many) and allowing files to be synced by Dropbox would be very convenient. It doesn't have to be flashy, just functional. Selective sync is a must for my usage needs but other than that I need no other "fluff" and just the basics (backup to Internet and sync to each device).
Robert, as a super user, that wasn't a very helpful comment.
Sorry you don't like it Curt but, unless you'd prefer a lie, the fact remains there is no native client for Raspbian on the Raspberry Pi hobbyist platform.
"Each Super User answers thousands of questions to educate and help others, foster community engagem...
A one-word answer like that does nothing to foster engagement. It just shoots down someone else's question.
Maybe you could have said something like "Dropbox isn't currently supporting any operating systems or platforms (that includes processor arch....
Or you could have said "Dropbox clients don't support ARM at the moment, but here's a project that attempts to bring Dropbox functionality to Raspberry Pi."
Lots of alternatives to one-word answers.
I'm happy to agree to disagree.
The presumption here seems to be an erroneous belief there's somehow an obligation in play to do the job of the Raspbian community for them, which isn't the case.
That said, if any hobbyist toy computer enthusiasts want to step up on these, for that matter any other, questions, then I'm certain such contributions will always be welcome.
In the meantime I'm afraid the fact remains, no, there isn't a native Raspbian client. Nor has this discourse brought us one iota closer to there being one.
