Baidu PCS backend

Registered by Steve Qian on 2013-09-12

Backend support for Baidu Yun (yun.baidu.com)

It will be great if duplicity can support this dropbox like services available for chinese market, as one of the backends

Doc for rest api:
http://developer.baidu.com/wiki/index.php?title=Docs/PCS

And there is a python wrapper available here:
https://pypi.python.org/pypi/baidupcs/

Whiteboard

I've just checked and this is more complicated than, say, Dropbox API. You have to:
1. Register as a developer at http://developer.baidu.com/user/reg - they're verifying a Chinese phone number, so it's a major blocker
2. Create a new "application", just so you can get an API key
3. Start OAuth2 authentication using said API key

If someone from China is willing to register as a developer and donate his key to Duplicity, that could work. Otherwise, Baidu support is probably out of question.

I am a Chinese programmer, a Duplicity user also, about 1 year ago,
I tried to create this backend by myself,
but fail, feel so sad about my wild-skill of Python & C,
and check for any way of usefully to use it times and times,
it provide 10TB space per account now, a big free cake for me.

so, hear that Duplicity Team need a baidu-app-key at this page,
i think i have to do something,
means happy to donate my key and even any help if you need (under my personal ability).

What's the next move? Contact anyone ?
