OneDrive (Backup & Sync) workaround for Linux

As a developer, we all love keeping our files onto the cloud securely so that we can have access to them anytime, anywhere. What better service to do that than Microsoft OneDrive?

Here’s a small review of how I found it to be really useful! Let’s get started.
