Kindle Cloud Sync

No such tool, already packaged for the Kindle, has been posted that I can recall.

BUT
It may be possible because:
  • Kindles run Linux
  • Linux has the davfs2 file system driver that supports WebDav
  • Most "Cloud" services also support WebDav access


Here is how to setup and mount a WebDav "Cloud" into your file system tree on a Linux desktop:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=189470

Twobob and I have several private "Clouds" that we mount into our development machines.
I.E: A shared directory, even though we are 6 time zones apart.

We also **started** (but never finished) looking at porting the davfs2 file system to the very constrained memory resources of the Kindle (davfs2, as shipped, is a real memory hog).

That is one of our unfinished projects, way, way, way, way down on our to-do list (like in, maybe never).
So if someone else wants to take up the challenge . . . .

Why not use a cloud server that supports rsync? We are only talking about a bunch of ebooks. rsync is included in usbnet, a simple script could be launched from KUAL? I found this website with most/all? online backup servers: http://vivil.free.fr/backup.htm maybe find one? Just an idea...

Dunno any cloud services that use sshfs. Not the most common thing to do.

But unfortunately:
Code:
root@kindle:/mnt/us/documents# ../sshfs aditya@192.168.1.2:/home/aditya/Desktop/test ./test
It just sits there, terminal freezes, no more ssh connections accepted.

you can also use this : Bittorrent sync

It's not cloud access but you can install it on every OS (so in servers too) and sync your files.

@aditya3098: Might be it expects an ssh client to actually handle the potential user interaction, and that USBNet only installs dbclient (so the ssh command doesn't actually exists).

Haven't checked, just throwing ideas around . (I usually do this the other way around anyway: mount a part of the Kindle fs on a remote/local box).

Yeah, but I made ssh a symlink to the dbclient binary.
Didn't I see an openssh build somewhere?

@aditya3098: I have one on hand (the server & sftp applet are in USBNet).

I'll check it out eventually... .

That depends on what country a person lives in.
In the USA, that work is useless.
