View Full Version : Gmail Drive on 770?
12-28-2005, 06:42 PM
I use the Gmail shell extension on my windows PC's and have been wondering if the same thing could be used on the 770?
Can anyone put together an app which can access media and files which is stored in a gamil account directly from a 770 with wifi access?

You're going to have to find a linux gmail shell drive utility, then port it.

That would be the links I posted then?
Gmail Filesystem provides a mountable Linux filesystem which uses your
Gmail account as its storage medium. Gmail Filesystem is a Python
application and uses the FUSE (http://fuse.sourceforge.net) userland filesystem
infrastructure to help provide the filesystem, and libgmail (http://libgmail.sourceforge.net) to communicate
GmailFS supports most file operations such as read, write, open,
close, stat, symlink, link, unlink, truncate and rename. This means
that you can use all your favourite unix command line tools to operate
on files stored on Gmail (e.g. cp, ls, mv, rm, ln, grep etc. etc.).
Please be gentle on the code. This is my first foray into Python and
I'm sure the code is far from elegant. I'm particularly concerned with
my attempts to manipulate mutable byte arrays. I'm sure that there
must be a less clumsy way of doing it than the nasty list -> array ->
string path I'm currently using. This language has a reputation as an
excellent choice for rapid prototyping. The first working
version of GmailFS took about 2 days of coding. There was an
additional 1.5 days spent on performance tuning and bugfixing. Given
that this includes language learning curve, the reputation seems
well deserved. A special mention should go to libgmail (http://libgmail.sourceforge.net) and FUSE (http://sourceforge.net/projects/avf), both greatly
contributed to the short development time.
My post is more of a suggestion than a request... :D

Sorry, I should've read more closely.
