SparkleShare, a development that will allow us to any of us have a service like Dropbox totally controlled by us and we can install in the same hosting server we use for our blog ( for instance).
SparkleShare still evolving but if you want to try the thing is becoming easier , as discussed in Linux Magazine, which published a brief guide to implementation of SparkleShare on our server.
Although you can install
SparkleShare through DEB packages, it is best to compile from scratch , and to do what we must do first is to install the necessary dependencies:
sudo apt-get install gtk-sharp2-runtime mono-devel mono monodevelop-cyl dbus1.0 libndesk-nant-dev libnotify-dev-cil libgtk2.0-cil-dev libwebkit-cil-dev intltool libtool python-nautilus glib1.0 libndesk-dbus-dev-cil-libappindicator0.1-cil-dev
After that we
download the latest version of source code, once downloaded and unzipped into its corresponding folder, compile with the following commands
. / configure - prefix = / usrmakesudo make install
last step is to set up a Git repository , is that as explained in the original article, but can run SparkleShare Gitorious GitHub and their backends for storing online, take up our own facility Git allows you to control absolutely all parameters of this service on our server.
access that there is a relatively simple set of guidelines to follow as the official wiki page which provides detailed instructions. Once everything is running just run the command
to start the service, and when we get the address of our server we have to do with the format user @ hostremoto . From there enter the path of our Git repository on our server with the format / path / to / directory / nombrerepositorio.git .
only need to click Finish and we will list our SparkleShare installation. Luck
