Stupid question maybe, but what is it for?

It's a network storage service similar to dropbox. If you sign up for a personal account on box.com you can get 10 GB of storage space for free and if you are willing to pay you can get more.

The port is based on this:

Ahh... Fairly useless in the UK then with the pitiful average upload speed most ISP's give, I've never had more than half a megabit, I get around 15mb down and 0.5mb up, totally usless

Very intresting and somehow essential for today standards!

Can FUSE been extracted to library for general use?


Is there open source server, which is compatible boxes?

Yeah, I know, bit early to think big things... should be nice to have own AmigaCloud ;)

Btw what happened to swraid_device ?


@anyone intrested

Based on 256bit SSL encryption on transit and 256-bit AES encryption for rest. Altough they don't tel, what is "rest", it is more or less secure, I think.

Problem is pretty same in Finland. Symmetric lines are expensive.

Some countries in Asia one can get 100/100 with couple of tens of $.

4G will make them cheaper. Now it is possible to get something like 50/20 with permanent IP for 30-40 € per month. 100/100 guaranteed is more expensive.

World is going to internet based services, even in here periphery.

Copper will be dead. It is fibre or wireless 4g and up.

I don't know if developer docs are availabe for it yet.

I don;t know about that, yes uploads speed are slow, but that's the same for dropbox and alot of people use it for project sharing and backup.

You clearly couldn't use easiy it just as a local disk for random access, I agree.

@Salasso

Is it drop box compatable or a seperate API?

wonderful! i use box for cloud storage currently, and am looking forward to using your client. thank you for your hard work to get this far!

Documentation for filesysbox.library is available in autodoc form.

It's hardcoded for box.com service.

There are also other open source network filesystems for FUSE that can theoretically be ported but I chose to do this one first since it looked easy enough to do.

It already is. It's called filesysbox.library and is a port (not recompile) from 0.730 MorphOS version with plenty of changes and improvements for AmigaOS 4.

It is not released to the public yet though.

ATM because I have to statically link libcurl, openssl and all other support libraries except for zlib (which I've replaced with z.library) the stripped executable is 4.0 MB in size (debug version is 7.8 MB). A curl.library if one was available would certainly help with this.

Upload speeds are generally much slower than download speeds here in Finland too. Never had too much problem with it TBH.

BTW in the screenshot I posted it displays the total space of the BOXFS: device as 2 GB instead of 10 GB. I've already fixed this by setting the block size reported by statfs() to 1024 bytes instead of just 1 byte.

I am definitely interested in this...

I have at least 2 things (1 I am actively working on...) needing something such as this.

If I am permitted to test or otherwise possibly make developer materials ?

@all

Being "lucky" to live in Japan...the network speeds here are generally assured to be at least 10->50Mbit bidirectional on the VDSL links and the FTTH links are rated for 100->200MBit down and 10->20MBit up...

I also have a "box.net" account and would love to see other things such as "FTP:" updated to reflect the use of this as well.

but one piece at a time is definitely a great start.

might I suggest a plugin for Put.IO next. I attempted to create a synching program in Hollywood to this service using curl and wget but curl kept freezing my computer so Igave up on it.

Put.IO has the added benefit of the user being able to Copy and Paste both torrent and megnet links to their account and the service will automatically download the file to your account and auto extract files from archives as well.

It is much safer than using torrent sites or downloads as it does the downloading in the cloud to their server first and you simply download the end result.

This might be useful to the Transmission users out there.

Thanks for hard work.

I am more concerned about what Steven claims is HIS PRIVATE FUNDING of FUSE port or similar. I bet MorphOS will beat him.


I am personally funding the NTFS-3G and filesysbox.library port myself. Fredrik is doing the work. When we consider it ready for release it will go out along with full source code.
