Just writing here to keep the thread alive. Any thoughts on listing Pages/Drive?
While it may not be a requirement, when is Skiff planning to open-source their drive apps?
Are they proprietary?
We’ve been planning to open-source our other apps this spring and summer. We are only limited on engineering time right now.
We require both productivity tools and notebooks to be open-source, so I think it’s safe for me to mark this as rejected for not meeting the criteria for now.
2 posts were split to a new topic: Require Open Source for Password Managers
Becoming open source can become the first listed Skiff product.
I am waiting for this to recommend Skiff Pages in my community.
I’m trying to use Skiff Drive (I really like the idea of decentralized storage om IPFS) but they don’t offer any option to export all the data.
If you try to do a total export you get a message where you are told that the limit is 100MB.
I think it is very important for a drive to allow easy export of all documents (as well as, I think, a GDPR requirement).
I think, a GDPR requirement
Can confirm, although you should take my word with a grain of salt, the privacy experts at Skiff have a different opinion on what is written in the law (irony).
Before commenting, did you look at the existing export options?
Drive: ZIP, individual files, or folders.
Pages: PDF, Markdown, or individual files as they were uploaded.
Mail: Individual emails, multi-select emails, or an inbox. No special export app required.
What’s your issue, exactly?
when I talk about exporting files I mean that it should be possible to export all your files in one click.
On Skiff Drive if I try to do this (select all the files and click ‘download’) it says the limit is 100MB as screenshot.
I’m well aware too that you can download every single file or folder but that’s not what the GDPR (and common sense I might add) says.
If there is some kind of ‘export’ in the settings I have not found it, I only find the ‘import’ setting.
I was going to ask you to check, so thanks. This definetly is not sufficient.
Right now, this limitation is based on decrypting end-to-end encrypted files in memory in your browser, and then compressing the entire download to a ZIP file.
Would suggest reading the response above. Do you have any suggestions?
I actually do, i have experience in building solutions for this.
I cannot share the code as this is proprietary (not my call) but in essence: you could use chunks and blobs to decrypt files on the fly in the browser. You can easily go up in hunderds of gb’s this way.
We do this for single files, but can you do this for ZIPs? I can ask our eng team too, I personally don’t have as much context on this.
A zip is a single file. Surely isn’t the problem here
Yes, but we’d have to stream multiple files separately and bundle them into a ZIP. I’ll see what we can do.
Definitely possible still.
What’s keeping Skiff Drive from being recommended?
As of now, Proton Drive is recommended, which has a pretty weak free plan and is far from being a polished product that I would use.
The other option is Tresorit, which is not open source and there is no free plan, and their paid plans are pretty costly.
I think Skiff Drive is a good option to recommend.
