- Go to the OAuth Consent tab, fill it, and save.
- Go to the Credentials tab and click Create Credentials -> OAuth Client ID
- Choose Other and Create.
- Use the download button to download your credentials.
- Move that file to the root of mirror-bot, and rename it to credentials.json
- Visit [Google API page](
- Search for Drive and enable it if it is disabled
- Finally, run the script to generate token file (token.pickle) for Google Drive:

pip install google-api-python-client google-auth-httplib2 google-auth-oauthlib python3

## Deploying

- Start docker daemon (skip if already running):

sudo dockerd

- Build Docker image:

sudo docker run mirror-bot

# Using service accounts for uploading to avoid user rate limit
For Service Account to work, you must set USE_SERVICE_ACCOUNTS="True" in config file or environment variables
Many thanks to [AutoRClone]( for the scripts
## Generating service accounts
Step 1. Generate service accounts [What is service account](
Let us create only the service accounts that we need. 
**Warning:** abuse of this feature is not the aim of autorclone and we do **NOT** recommend that you make a lot of projects, just one project and 100 sa allow you plenty of use, its also possible that overabuse might get your projects banned by google. 

Note: 1 service account can copy around 750gb a day, 1 project makes 100 service accounts so thats 75tb a day, for most users this should easily suffice.

`python3 --quick-setup 1 --new-only`

A folder named accounts will be created which will contain keys for the service accounts created

NOTE: If you have created SAs in past from this script, you can also just re download the keys by running:

python3 --download-keys project_id

### Add all the service accounts to the Team Drive or folder
- Run:

python3 -d SharedTeamDriveSrcID

# Youtube-dl authentication using .netrc file
For using your premium accounts in youtube-dl, edit the netrc file (in the root directory of this repository) according to following format:

machine host login username password my_youtube_password

where host is the name of extractor (eg. youtube, twitch). Multiple accounts of different hosts can be added each separated by a new line
