Run a command against a running rclone.
This runs a command against a running rclone. Use the --url flag to specify an non default URL to connect on. This can be either a “:port” which is taken to mean “http://localhost:port" or a “host:port” which is taken to mean “http://host:port"
A username and password can be passed in with --user and --pass.
Note that --rc-addr, --rc-user, --rc-pass will be read also for --url, --user, --pass.
Arguments should be passed in as parameter=value.
The result will be returned as a JSON object by default.
The --json parameter can be used to pass in a JSON blob as an input instead of key=value arguments. This is the only way of passing in more complicated values.
Use --loopback to connect to the rclone instance running “rclone rc”. This is very useful for testing commands without having to run an rclone rc server, eg:
rclone rc --loopback operations/about fs=/
Use “rclone rc” to see a list of all possible commands.
