Use Google Takeout.
In the archives, select Google Drive and select the folder you intend to download. If the folder size is greater than 2GB, it gives you the content in different zip files and send email confirmation, so that you can download
Currently (June 2019), https://takeout.google.com/ has options to either perform a one-time export or to schedule exports every 2 months for a year (6 archives).
The archive can be delivered as a download link via email or added to Drive/Dropbox/OneDrive/Box.
Dropbox does do block-level sync, according to this answer to a ServerFault question.
The blocks in question are 4MB, apparently. Whether your idea of a loopback filesystem / disk image to dump all the 20K files into a single file for Dropbox syncing would speed up Dropbox sync would depend on the speed of your internet connection - you would be trading ...
Use the open source command-line tool drive to sync the whole folder to your local hard disk recursively, downloading the contained files recursively instead of in one huge ZIP archive.
Use a command like this:
drive pull "Google Drive Folder Name to Download"
This will download only changes and new files, so a one-way sync from remote to local. It will ...
There is trelew, an interactive/immersive Trello CLI app, which I started. Not very good for scripts, but works well for normal Trello work from the terminal.
You'll need nodejs to use it. If you already have npm you can just type
sudo npm install -g trelew
then start it with
Trello does have an API which is documented here. Using that you should be able to write scripts to perform any action it supports.
It doesn't look like anyone has written a bash interface as yet, however you could possibly make a Python based command line tool based on the libraries listed on that page.
A bit late, but ..
I, myself, have finally had it with there being no replacement for the "really delicious" addon from the old days you speak of. Not only has the old addon that I have kept running finally gone to a state of too many bugs, after days of searching I didn't find anything close to what was offered by it before (on any browser!).
So, I think ...
Doing it from bash is very straightforward. All you need to do is run:
curl -s -d /dev/null https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/DOCUMENT_ID/export?exportFormat=csv > mydocument.csv
dos2unix mydocument.csv 2> /dev/null
This only works for publicly shared documents though. To have access to private documents you will need to use OAuth2. You can find ...
I can confirm this is still a problem in Dec 2017. Pasted in a quoted conversation from another thread with cmd-V (Mac). Fortunately there is a solution and it is called unsend:
In the top right, click Settings Settings and then Settings.
In the "Undo Send" section, check the box next to "Enable Undo Send."
In the "Send cancellation period" section, set the ...
Some solutions may be,
Subscribe to YouTube channels via RSS and use your RSS feed reader to handle grouping, tagging etc.
Use PocketTube (available for Firefox, Chrome, Android and iOS). It does not seem to be free software although the Firefox version claims it is released under the Mozilla Public License 2.0.
Create a Google account for every category ...
EDIT: The OP updated that he's working with Linux. Keeping it for Windows users that will arrive here.
For Windows, there's the Google Photos Backup Tool
It would sync your photos and can be set to sync the photos in high or original quality.
It doesn't look like Linux support is fully there, but it's getting close and, depending on what you're running, may already work for you.
Seen on Engadget:
watching flicks in your favorite distro (be it Ubuntu, Mint or Arch) may finally come true. Paul Adolph from Netflix posted a message to Ubuntu developers, telling them that, "Netflix will play with ...
It might be because now that Youtube/Google knows who you are, they are trying to customize the pre-roll advertising to you
So, as a "normal" anonymous person, just by luck it turns out the advertising loads fine (even if it's just bottom of the video ads)
THEN, you log in, and through bad luck the CDN that is now serving your ads (or tracking your ...
@Andrew, I would recommend Insync - it's a client-based sync tool that runs on many OSes, including many Linux distros. It will cost you a very reasonable $15 one time - there's no recurring fee. It meets all your other requirements, including backing up the delta of the entire contents of the drive.
Check out their page for Linux and their CLI reference ...
