Re: File synch - could we get owncloud-client-cmd added to standard image?


That's awesome - is it documented anywhere? Is there anyway for apps installed from the store to take advantage of this?

FWIW, if you create a ~/bin/ folder on your phone and reboot it, it will
be picked up in your $PATH. That allows to add binaries to the device
without making it writable and doesn't influence OTAs.

I started messing with Michael Reese's owncloud scripts for calendar and
contact synch between my owncloud server and my Ubuntu Touch phone.
Filesynch requires owncloud-client-cmd.

I know there was work in the past to seed OpenVPN into the standard
image. Would we be able to seed owncloud-client-cmd into the standard
image as well? Or is that too specific and would not have a wide-enough
user-base to make it worthwhile?

I see in the documentation I could make my phone writable and install it
myself, but I was kind of hoping to keep my phone as stock as possible
and use tools that come with the phone through regular OTA updates.
