Nuxeo Releases Nuxeo Drive, a Desktop Synchronization Client for Content
Open Source Client Based on RESTful APIs Enables Developers to Build
Custom Content Sharing Applications
NEW YORK, NY and PARIS -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/13 -- Nuxeo, the
provider of a content management platform for business applications,
announces the availability of Nuxeo Drive, a desktop synchronization
client that automates the content updating process between local
desktops and the content repository. Nuxeo Drive works with all
applications built on the Nuxeo Platform, including Document
Management, Digital Asset Management, Case Management, and custom
Nuxeo Drive installs a light client on the desktop, establishes a
secure connection to the Nuxeo repository -- on premise, or in the
Cloud -- and updates content when a change is detected, either
locally or in the Nuxeo repository. Nuxeo Drive handles all types of
content, from simple files such as documents, images, and slide decks
to complex application output and custom content types. Secure
conflict resolution ensures that collaborative projects stay
up-to-date in the Nuxeo content repository.
Nuxeo Drive is fully customizable, in keeping with Nuxeo's ongoing
strategy to empower software architects and developers to build the
content-centric applications that fit their business requirements.
Written in Python, Nuxeo Drive is available as native binary for most
operating systems. The synchronization client is based on an open
RESTful protocol, so it can be used to develop an efficient
synchronization client in any language, for custom content-centric
applications. Nuxeo Drive is open source, with code available on
"This goes far beyond simple cloud-based file sharing systems,
because the Nuxeo Platform provides a full content management
application," said Eric Barroca, Nuxeo CEO. "But the beauty of Nuxeo
Drive is its ability to handle custom content. For example, you can
create a custom content type in the Nuxeo Platform to handle
insurance claims. It can be synced on the client as an XML file,
edited with a local application, such as an offline form application,
and then synced back to the Nuxeo repository, where other team
members can access the most recent version. No other solution can do
Key features of Nuxeo Drive include:
-- Round-trip synchronization. Select the files to synchronize, and
whenever a change is detected in the repository or locally, updates
are automatically triggered.
-- Full or partial repository synchronization. Specify the scope of
content of interest for synchronization.
-- Offline access. Nuxeo Drive starts or resumes synchronization when the
network connection is available.
-- Flexible conflict management that allows review of discrepancies.
-- Structural updates. Move, rename, delete files, server-side or
locally, and the synchronization client manages the update.
-- Works on multiple operating systems. Compatible with Windows, Mac, and
-- Management of all types of local content -- from simple files to
complex folder hierarchies generated by local applications.
-- Collaboration and workflow. The Nuxeo Platform supports collaborative
content management, so all local synchronization activities can be
configured to feed into the platform workflow processes.
-- Access control. Server-side access control policies are fully applied
to the Nuxeo Drive synchronization process, maintaining the content
security at all levels.
-- Synchronize dynamic document lists. It is possible to configure Nuxeo
Drive to synchronize documents that are in a specified state, to
handle custom use cases.
Nuxeo Drive is available for immediate download from the Nuxeo
Marketplace, and on GitHub for developers.
