Upload a file directly to Google Drive from a server

I had a huge directory that was to be shared with my client and I was having a limited internet access. I came across this interesting project. I downloaded the required version on the server, chmod +xed it and ran gdrive about. It asked me to get a token from the web by pasting a generated URL. I ran gdrive list and voila, I could see all my Drive files listed in the terminal.

I tared the required directory, and ran gdrive upload <filename>.tar.gz and the file got uploaded in seconds. I saved my bandwidth and learned a new thing! :)
