Toshiba FlashAir is a very versatile Wifi enabled SD card. It includes a wifi acces point and an embedded HTTP server to serve the SD card content to any browser. Toshiba provides some Flashair clients for Android and Windows, but as usual, Linux has been forgotten. So I decided to write a Linux client that allows to browse Flashair card content straight from Nautilus file manager.
This article explains how to setup a Linux workstation to be able to browse a Toshiba FlashAir SD card directly from Nautilus file manager.
We'll setup a specific directory on your computer which will become an online/offline mirror of your SD card. When you connect for the first time, most of the files will be only thumbnails not to overload the wifi connexion. But you'll be able to download any image or video with a simple right click from Nautilus. Once you disconnect your Flashair card, all downloaded files remain on your computer. You'll be able to connect anytime to your FlashAir card to update its content.
This has been setup and tested on an Ubuntu Gnome 16.04 LTS, but it should be applicable to any modern Linux distribution.
