Seadrive on raspberry Pi

I’m aware that it’s possible to compile seafile for aarch64, but that is not possible for seadrive since it is closed source. It does not make sense for me to install the sync client on this device since it does not have a lot of free space to throw around. Are there any plans on publishing the code for seadrive? If not, would it be possible to add aarch64 as a compilation target on the deb repo?

What’s the reason for not using the WebDAV integration of Seafile?

Also, have a look at Rclone. Rclone supports Seafile and might be helpful for your use case.

At that point I might as well use the seafile sync client. As for WebDAV, I have it disabled on the server since seadrive exists, last time I had it enabled it bypassed 2fa.

Not sure what you mean. The sync client doesn’t allow mounting as a drive. The other options do.

From what I gathered reading Rclone’s implementation of the seafile backend, it uses the API hosted by seahub for almost all transactions. Encrypted libraries are decrypted on the server (what is even the point) and conflicts are resolved by Rclone itself. One if not the strong advantage seafile has is how accurately it detects file conflicts, I have not had once false positive while using it, replacing that with what’s basically a generic cloud provider would not be ideal.

Thanks for the suggestion though, I’ll probably end up using it if the devs don’t open source the seadrive client or build it for aarch64.

There are hopes on getting seadrive running on aarch64
