Google Drive Dapp equivalent?

#1

Hi, I am looking for a Google Drive Blockstack Dapp equivalent that has ability to create parent and sub-folders, rename folder and able to see the folder tree.

Any recommendation?

Thanks @friedger I am currently using XOdrive. Thanks for your recommendation. I’ve also checked out pDrive. Interestingly, XOdrive and pDrive has the same exact UX/UI. Felt like the same Dapp but with different names. Maybe it is completely different under the hood, but that’s beyond my expertise since I am not a developer. Cheers!

From what I can see (very little as both are not open source) they use different development frameworks.

@stevenlam.id.blockst I think we will have similar experiences with other apps as well. Some apps are just a UI layer between you and your data. So, naturally, the UX will be probably similar. Current pDrives feels slightly better to me personally.

There is a new way to store data coming to blockstack (for developers). This will mean that in the future you could switch between pdrive and xor drive and still see your same files…

Wow thanks for sharing insight on this. I am very excited on the possibility to be able to switch between pdrive and xor drive and still see my same files and folder structures, etc. This is HUGE and a GAME CHANGER.

I understand dapps and Blockchain is at it’s infancy stage and will need time to evolve to better UI/UX. While I patiently wait and watch as this community and user adoption grow…I am so excited for the future of Web 3.0.

Cheers!

You can use D-Drives from inside Dmails, you can create folders, rename it, upload your files, send files as an attachment directly with Dmails … and many more

@mabdou.id What is your model for the files? Do you mind to post a suggestion to blockstack collection schema like this: https://github.com/blockstack/blockstack-collections/pull/4

On pdrive what is the maximum drive space?

The limit is your gaia storage provider’s limit.

pDrive, Dmails (D-Drives), Xordrive, mevaul, evault, dcrypt and maybe others have a HUGE bug when uploading a file, probably a blockstack library issue?
To replicate, just start uploading any file over 20 mb and look at the task manager rising from around 350 mb to over 1.2 gb (and keeps rising!) in seconds until the browser freezes or the computer slows down to a crawl by swapping.
This issue does NOT happen with the ENVELOP app or the BLACKHOLE app.
Envelop or Blackhole never fail, either uploading or downloading.
These are the only two apps I have been able to use continuously without any issue.
The others, are reproducible every time, either with Chrome browser or Brave browser.

Hope someone at blockstack takes a look at this issues.
