KOReader save annotated PDF back to Dropbox?

Okay so I know it's possible with KOReader to download PDFs from Dropbox, or even sync a Dropbox folder TO a local folder. But once a PDF has highlights/annotations added in-file — i.e. the PDF has been modified, and saved locally — is it possible to get that PDF back to Dropbox?

I know that if I was on a full Android device, I could install one of many apps from the Play Store to sync the specific local folder back to Dropbox, but in this case I'd be on a Kobo device where KOReader is all I've got.

Thanks!

I don't think *any* of the cloud storage plugins support upload, but as I don't use any of 'em, I may be mistaken.

That said, my usual answer to these sort of queries is: use rclone and a custom shell script. Both the filemanager and the favorite screen allow you to *run* shell scripts from the comfort of your couch ;p.

Do you know if there's a way to get Syncthing installed on Kobo/Koreader?

Never used it. rclone works just fine, though.

Seems to (have been) possible on kindle: https://github.com/gutenye/syncthing-kindle

The above seems to be as simple as getting the syncthing linux arm64 binary onto the device, then just running it basically. Could I achieve the same thing with Kobo/Koreader?

Yes, it's pretty simple.

You would first have to download the ARM version from https://syncthing.net/downloads/

Then you run syncthing.

You can then either adjust the config to temporarily allow outside connections (by default on port 8384), but easier is to do it through an SSH tunnel. With the SSH server in KOReader:

Code:
ssh -L 9191:localhost:8384 root@192.168.1.213 -p 2222
(192.168.1.213 is the IP of my H2O)

Then you can configure Syncthing on http://localhost:9191/ (or whichever port you put in the tunnel).

You could write a simple shellscript to start and stop Syncthing from the KOReader file browser if desired.

Thanks so much!

I've got syncthing working, and I've got a script prepped for starting/stopping. All through SSH so far.
1) How do I run the start script from koreader? Can I make it a menu option or something?
2) Is there a way to have this script run on boot/start? Will it just keep running in the background (with my ssh trials, it does seem to keep running between sleeps, although I have to re-enable wifi on wake) generally?

@Voksuuhm:

1/ It's in the long-press menu (both in the FM & favorites list). But, given 2/, fair warning: it's *blocking*, so you might want to fix things up manually first so that it backgrounds properly or something. If you need fancy visual feedback, you might be able to cobble something together via fbink (e.g., what happens w/ zsync2 during an OTA). Not familiar w/ syncthing, though, so eh, maybe easier said than done .

2/ Nope. That was deemed (mainly by me and myself ;p) a fairly gnarly idea for these platforms when that was implemented on Android.

If you *really* need it, my answer from that issue was essentially: wrap KOReader's startup script in your own custom script.
