I could add this to rclone, but since it only applies to one backend (drive) I’m reluctant to!
I understand your point. I’m not familiar with other cloud providers way of sharing files and folders but I would think they all need a way to add folder and file as shared folders.
There’s no other command line tools that could help for Google Drive. For other cloud provider such as mega.nz there’s megaous tool etc. But not for Google drive.
If you are reluctant to add for only Google drive, I understand, but this also similarly applies to other backend. In mega.nz I have to use mega.nz website to add folders into my mega.nz account before I can work on them with rclone.
For Microsoft one drive too. I have to use onedrive website to save shared folders to my corporate domain onedrive account. Without this I can’t access it from rclone. It’s even worse in the case of Microsoft onedrive because that action above means a real copy of those folders and files that will take long time to finish. This is as opposed to Google drive that does this instantly because it only links the folders and put them inside “My Drive”
