Accessing synced Nextcloud files offline from external mobile app

so I would like to create a mobile app working 100% offline which needs to have access to a specific synced file. Multiple questions come up:

  • Is it even possible to access NC files via filesystem (my app searches for the file in the filesystem)? This should be possible, but I read about read-only mode. So my app would take the storage path and would be able to fetch specific files?

  • Is it possible to create a file and drop it into the NC filesystem to upload it automatically when syncing?

Thanks for help :slight_smile:

I tested it with my local Android device. When I move a random file to that NC user directory the file won’t get synced…

@andy perhaps?

Well, you can access the files on the file system, the files won’t get re-uploaded/synced to the server.
