Rclone serve downloads and source


#1

I have to quick questions.

  1. I assume rclone serve http routes all traffic through the server that the command is run on, correct? If I download a large file being offered from rclone serve http then the file is going from the cloud provider, to my server, then to my browser, right?

  2. Where is the source that generates the directory listing? I want to see if I can make it more robust. I’m thinking with a little work and some JS I could make the UI for the HTTP very nice.

Thank you!

That is right. Though it is possible to use the --vfs-cache-mode full which will cache things on disk.

I have someone working on that exact thing at the moment :smile:

Thanks. Yeah, I came across that other post after I posted mine. My bad. Feel free to delete my post if you like.
