Integration with the Dolphin file manager

This functionality is in progress...

The context menu of files / folders in Dolphin supplemented by the following actions:

  • (for files that are missing in the cloud) to add the file / directory (with all subdirectories and files) in the list of files to be synchronized with the cloud;
  • (for files that are present in the cloud) to delete the file / directory (with all the attached files and directories) from the cloud (local copy is 1 and should be removed explicitly)

Dolphin show in the following states of files / directories:

  • the list synchronized and synchronized with the cloud;
  • the list synchronized and synchronized with the cloud;
  • the list synchronized and waiting for their turn (can be combined with the previous state).

List of files synchronized is available as a "special" folders in Dolphin.


As already mentioned, the main purpose of the service - automatic saving in a cloud of user-defined objects (files, folders, presets) and synchronization between all devices on their person. In simplified form, a set of components is as shown in the following picture:


, where is:
«User data» – user information is stored in the cloud;
«Database (user accounts)» – Database - information about users (user accounts);
Mediator – application that provides access to user data in accordance with the information about accounts;
The user's device – computer or running a client application or a third-party WebDAV client;
Webserver/Www site – Web site service, which provides opportunities to register, modify and delete your account and view its properties;
web browser – the user agent, through which a user accesses the Web site.

Thus, the following relatively independent tasks:

  • user interaction (GUI);
  • change tracking files synchronized and appeals to them - for the "automatic" sync;
  • Save the configuration files in a local store;
  • restoration of configuration files from the local store;
  • maintaining the list of local files synchronized.
  • Sync local files with a cloud storage.
