Rclone is a command line tool capable of syncing files and folders to and from Box, along with the ability to view the current folder structure.  The application has the ability to mount a Box folder structure, this is a useful feature for a Linux user.  The product is open source and actively maintained.  Box does not provide a native Linux client for syncing files from Box to the information system.  Rclone is the Linux alternative used by many Higher Education institutions.
