I want to simply be able to explore a dropbox filesystem, without much additional load on CPU, memory, storage (i.e., without saving copies of the remote files locally). It seems that the official client consumes much reosurces (and would do unneccessary operations like syncing) -- http://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/3179/dropbox-memory-usage-on-linux.
Can one simply mount it (say, with FUSE, and without copying the files locally) and explore the files with the usual Unix utilities (
cp)? (I wanted something similar for public.me.com:
wget -r-like or FUSE.)
Dropbox-Uploader (a bash script using dropbox API to access it) could help to access dropbox in a Unix way. But unfortunately it doesn't support recursive downloading of directories (like
wget -r), that's why I'd rather have a FUSE wrapper on top of it.
