jdrivesync is a simple command line tool that synchronizes a local file system structure to your Google Drive (and back):

java -jar jdrivesync-0.4.2-jar-with-dependencies.jar -l "/home/siom79"

The website is located at http://siom79.github.io/jdrivesync/.


If you want to contribute, you can fork the project into your github account, create a feature branch and later submit your changes in form of a pull request.

Coding styles

Please format your code according to the Java Conventions as they are provided by your IDE (IntelliJ, Eclipse) with the following changes:


The sources are build using the JDK (>= 1.8) and maven (>= 3.2). To build jdrivesync from scratch execute these commands:

git clone https://github.com/siom79/jdrivesync.git
cd jdrivesync
mvn install

After successful compilation you can execute jdrivesync with this command:

java -jar target/jdrivesync-0.4.2-jar-with-dependencies.jar

The deb package is created with the maven plugin jdeb during the build and is located in the target directory.

Version control

Version control follows the guidelines known as gitflow. This means basically that the master branch is always in a releasable state and that all work is done on feature branches that are later on merged to the develop branch.

Integration tests

Integration tests are written with JUnit and reside under src/test/java. The class names have to start with IT in order to distinguish them from normal unit tests. To run the integration tests place a valid authentication file under src/test/resources/.jdrivesync and execute them with (as they are not executed during a normal build):

mvn test -Pintegration-test

Please use a separate Google account for these integration tests as they are written to delete and to list all files of the account.
