For automatic camera photo backup and upload from within other apps (i.e. Gallery) take a look at the "GhostCloud additionals" over at OpenRepos.

Works like a charm! Photos too (@Olmo). Xperia 10 / SFOS / OwnCloud. Thank you so much !

Sailfishy's picture

Dear Beidl,
Is there any chance a 64 bit version of ghostcloud could be realized?  The users with a Xperia 10ii will be very grateful!

olmo's picture

hello beidl

use Ghostcloud on an XA2 xperia
sf OS (current version)

have a problem: the download works fine.
the upload, for example of pictures ... is blocked / ignored.
In short: upload is not possible.

Load the pictures currently via dropbox and transfer manually
the data on the nextcloud folder on the PC terminal.

I tested 3 different clouds - all the same result.
No cheap hosters based in germany

? What is the reason?

Does the upload currently only work on an Xperia 10 because
firmware too old for the XA2?

i had the same problems with the Jolla 1,
intex (jolla C) on the xperia X
inclusive currently on the XA2

the function on the Xperia 10
guaranteed or confirmed?

Would then switch to an Xperia 10 if it was
problems with the XA2

I thank you. regards

Hello, it successfully connects to my webdav created by my computer. But it seems I can't play videos online. I can only download them. Not supporting online viewing now? And I also want to download files to sd card.

laoidheach's picture

I really like this app. But – as others have stated – really needs a multi-download and multi-upload feature.

lispy's picture

Great app! Maybe think about folder playback for music? So we can stream our music collection?

Karry's picture

Hi Beidl, can you release version >= 0.9.4 for SFOS please? I believe that multiple people will appraise backup of SD card photos that I was working on :-)

beidl's picture

Hey Karry, I'll push the new version within the next week. I'm doing some testing now before release to ensure everything is alright. :)

sashikknox's picture

Is it posdible to setting folder of camera backup?

beidl's picture

Not currently. It's possible this will be added when selective sync lands, which is still some releases off.

sgvb's picture

Just wanted to mention. When the authentication fails, the application is a serious battery drain. I suspect that the app keeps retrying indefinately. Just to show what the impact is; Crest listed at one point that the daemon uses 27% of my CPU, which is probably continuously as my phone really stays warm when it stays on. Phone is dead after 6-8 hours instead of 18-24 hours even with stuff like wifi/BT on.

I also have additionals installed, so maybe it is actually part of that part of the app. But I would suggest to increase the period between connection attempts. I don't sync tasks or photos every 5 seconds, even a connection attempt every hour would be perfectly fine in my eyes.

vkn999's picture

On version 0.9.5 I have the same battery drain on Xiaomi sagit

Image preview doesn't work on latest main branch. I have latest ghostcloud and Nextcloud server. Any tips what is wrong?

beidl's picture

Please check the server's logs if requests to the thumbnail API are being made.

Last time I checked both master and accounts+sync branches were successful in fetching thumbnails 

pkuronen's picture

Thanks for the app, it works great. One silly question: where do the downloaded files go?

bartek's picture

Hi, can you add multiple account support? Im using own Nextcloud and other webdav service and I want to use your great app with it

beidl's picture

The accounts+sync branch has complete multi-account support, but only for the desktop and non-Sailfish platforms. The code is there, it‘s just the UI adjustment that‘s missing for SailfishOS.

If someone would like to help out: a pull request on GitHub is highly appreciated.

beidl's picture

Happening in the accounts+sync branch, but it'll take some time until it could be considered finished.

sfbsfb's picture

Great app, why did you change the name?

mercurio's picture

I do not know why my comment has been deleted, but this app does not work with Nextcloud.

beidl's picture

The application has been tested with NextCloud. Please provide detailed information, preferably on the GitHub page.

mercurio's picture

Sorry for the comment a bit angry! Perhaps the problem is on my Nextcloud.
In any case, the error that gives me is to check the connection.

beidl's picture

This is still very little information. Is your Nextcloud installation located at a sub directory? Are you using HTTPS?

mase's picture

Did you publish the code somewhere?

peperjohnny's picture

Seems to be on github

itdoesntmatt's picture

Great app...can you implement menu to share a file?

beidl's picture

What exactly would you want to share?

mase's picture

Is it possible to have the folders available offline in the device filesystem?

This would be great to sync password files from password managers.

Humpel's picture

Thanks for the app!

Any way or any chance to be able to use multiple ownClouds/accounts?

Marzanna's picture

Thank you for this app! Where can I report bugs?
