Re: How to develop back-ends

Good. Thanks for the info. I'll take a look at duplicity, then. One last thing: do you know if the people on duplicity are well-receiving of this kind of contribution?

Duplicity is in Python, yes.  And yes, you would need to get a MediaFire backend merged into duplicity.

S3 is a separate package in Ubuntu because duplicity's backends often require extra packages (in S3's case, python-boto) to actually work.  So the backends are optional in that way.

Once MediaFire is a supported backend in duplicity, Deja Dup can begin using it.

Mediafire. So I have to projects to work with. Interesting. Which part demands the most work? Is duplicity done in Python? Also, when you say make sure it's in duplicity, you mean the resulting code will be merged into duplicity? If so, how come in Ubuntu, Amazon S3 is a separate package? Thanks.

Which online provider?

The first step is to make sure the backend is in duplicity, the python-based commandline tool that deja-dup uses behind the scene.

Then there's a bit of glue code needed in deja-dup (vala-based) to expose that backend and connect it with duplicity.

Hello. I'm interested in developing a backend for Deja-dup so I it will become possible to backup to a certain online storage provider. What are the first steps? Where can I find the documentation for this? What are the programming languages used? Is it hard? Thanks. :)
