Many of the comments here are out of date. RClone CAN absolutely mount cloud storage of all kinds including WebDAV. You can even choose where to mount it, and what type (if any) disk you want it to appear as.

This program has an awesome set of options including the ability to customize how the file cache works! Big plus in my book.

The command line is NOT hard at all, it even holds your hand in doing the initial setup. The problem is RClone isn’t super well known yet, so there’s not a ton of tutorials on it. But the forums are super helpful and friendly.

The GUI Rclone is quite good but not better than the alternatives and I can consider Syncback , Resilio and Gs Richcopy 360 . Also Goodsync is great

Support many (free) cloud storage providers.

The command line interface may seems difficult and need some time to get used to.

It can sort of replace Cryptomator. You can encrypt the uploaded files via rclone crypt and password before they get uploaded. When it is configured for the first time you do not need to enter password anymore. But Cryptomator's GUI is better.

You can use it even on Android devices via Termux.

Any GUI available?

Could the existing users of this little applet suggest any good GUI wrapper to make it accessible to those not proficient at the CLI?

Thanks for your suggestion, jasonlane, but appimage only for Linux breaks it for me.

this tool is just HUGE ! A MUST-HAVE !!

Command line … but very powerful ! ( Note: A minimalist GUI Web interface can be trigger too )

Mount option is incredible, it can replace MountainDuck, Expandrive and so on...

Can't bring up this "minimalist GUI Web interface" that you refer to, on the Linux Mint OS. Any suggestions?
