Easter present for owners of Nokia N900 Maemo Phone

by with 23 comments

We know many of you are open-source enthusiasts like we are, and some of you own a Nokia N900 Linux-Phone like I do. Nokia might forget us, however we didn’t.

Ever wanted to access all your files from SpiderOak on your Maemo phone? Just direct your Maemo-browser to this installer file and install our new mobile client!

The client is written in 100% pure python, includes source code and uses our web-api. It might also give you a good starting point if you want to develop a SpiderOak-Application on your own.

Happy Easter!

  1. This works great for the use case mentioned above, that is to see files backed up through OTHER machines from N900. But, does it allow one to backup/sync files stored on N900? I'm unable to do that.

  2. @IllTemperedSampo – yes, I've just tried it out and unless I'm missing something, it's just for grabbing files that have been backed up on your desktops and laptops etc. manually. A pity because I was hoping to use it for sync, but it's certainly a good start – maybe if enough of us are downloading it, SpiderOak will add functionality to it?

    At the very least, it includes python sources so maybe someone who is better at python than I am could improve it.

  3. Insta-install. Agree that sync would be great, but something is better than nothing! Thanks!

  4. Thanks for supporting the client. This worked fantastically until the most recent updates. Now it doesn't start. Is anyone else experiencing this?

  5. @colan I'm sorry to hear that! Would you mind sending me an email to frank at spideroak.com?

  6. Awesome job! This is another reason why I started telling my friends that they should use SpiderOak instead of Dropbox – you're great! Now please add sync functionality and this will be the greatest application EVER :D

    I don't have a maemo-device, I don't know the exact path where the source-files are stored for apt, and http://apt.spideroak.com likes to give a 403 on every folder except the slackware one. Could you please publish the source somewhere?

  8. I hve a nokia n900 but now I am struggling wth a problem in my phone. At the tme of open it shows communication error and then phone is connecting wth sim .. Show me some way to sought it out..

  9. Still wanting N9 / meego app.
    Next phone will be Jolla (or Tizen) so meego is still wanted.
