Rclone Browser (Linux)
Rclone Browser is a simple GUI for rclone and it’s available on Linux, Windows, macOS and BSD. You can download the package as an AppImage from https://github.com/kapitainsky/RcloneBrowser/releases. You can also install it from AUR on Arch Linux.
Run the program and do double-click on your remote to open a file browser. Click “Config…” to edit or create a remote (using rclone CLI).
The file browser is very intuitive and you can upload and download files, mount the remote on your computer and get file properties.
When you click “Download”, a window will display and you will be able to select the destination and some rclone options.
RCX - Rclone for Android is a cloud file manager, that uses rclone as its backend. You can add remotes or import your
rclone.conf file (you may not see Amazon S3 on the list when adding a remote, but it’s fully compatible, I’ve added it by importing my rclone config file). Run
rclone config file on your computer to find where this file is located.
This app should work fine, but on my old smartphone (from 2014), sometimes RCX closes unexpectedly. With this app you can do what you usually do with a cloud file browser: download and upload files, rename, create folders, etc.
