FTP For Cloud Drives
p1p3 is an FTP Adapter for your cloud drives (Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive etc.)
p1p3 enables you to access your cloud drive with just an FTP client — as if your cloud drive was an FTP-Server.
Because when it's impossible or impractical to install native cloud drive software on a device (server, PC, webcam, embedded), there's most certainly an FTP client available by default.
Be the first to learn about progress on p1p3 and to reserve one of the first beta access spots by joining our list:
With p1p3 you now can:
Access your cloud drives from any device with just an FTP clientSave on extra storage servers, because you already have that cloud drive with plenty of storage spaceUpload backups from your servers directly onto your cloud driveConnect your webcam directly to your cloud drive for FTP uploadsLet your clients easily send you files directly into your cloud driveUse FTP's tried and tested tooling and scripting capabilities to automate file tasks on your cloud drive...and much more!
What's the status of the project?
We have an early prototype.
When will it launch?
We're expecting to have a public version in early 2019.
How does it work?
On a personal dashboard on our website you add a cloud drive account. We'll then create an FTP login for it (server address, port, username, password) which you can use with an FTP client to access the files on your cloud drive.
So basically p1p3 is an adapter that sits between your FTP client and the cloud drive. What this adpater does is to translate FTP commands into API calls of the cloud provider and to stream the data (files etc.) between the two in real time.
What does the name "p1p3" mean?
"p1p3" is just the nerdy spelling of the word "pipe". It's also pronounced as "pipe" [/paɪp/]. Piping or pipelining in software is a widely concept for a sequence or chain of processes, especially on UNIX-like systems. We feel that name "p1p3" is a good fit because instead of storing files we just "pipe" them through.
But FTP is insecure!
FTP connections are not encrypted, but we communicate with your cloud account only through their encrypted API endpoints. Additinonally we support choosing a sub folder of your cloud drive as the FTP root folder. This way FTP connections can only access that specified fraction of your cloud drive.
Oh, and we're working on an SFTP implementation as well.
But — sometimes an FTP client is all you've got on your hands...
Which cloud providers will be supported?
We're starting with Dropbox but aim to eventually support all popular cloud drives.
