 KeeCloud is a simple plugin that adds support to the built in URL file access in KeePass. The UI and setup is minimal. It is designed to work with the built in opening/saving/synchronization/trigger options in KeePass without duplicating any of that functionality.

+## Why use KeeCloud
+
+There are many plugins that add support for opening/syncing/saving files to other locations. Most of these also include syncing and backup options. That may be great if that is what you want, however, you are limited to syncing with that location through that plugin only. KeeCloud extends the natural ability of KeePass to open/sync/save to URLs. None of the functionality in KeePass is duplicated. You can set up a trigger to sync with a file on one of the supported services using the built in synchronization process in KeePass. Even other plugins can work with remote files through KeeCloud.

 ## Use
 
 Once the plugin is installed, there are automatically more protocol prefixes that can be used with a URL. KeePass comes with built in support for http(s):// and ftp://. KeeCloud will add other options to that list. The username and password fields will work as appropriate for the specific protocol being used.
 
 ## Example
 
-One of the protocols that has been added is support for Amazon Simple Storage Service or S3. The protocol prefix is s3://.

 ## Configuration
 
-When possible there is no configuration required and credentials are just entered directly into the 'Open From URL' dialog box. However, most of the cloud APIs require some additional steps. This is due to the popularity of an authentication technology called OAuth.

-When using a protocol that is authenticated by OAuth, you don't enter your credentials for your account into the URL dialog box. The service won't accept that. Instead, you use the get protocol credentials wizard located in tools. You craft your URL according to the protocol specific guidelines and then the wizard will open a web browser. You will log into your account and authorize KeePass to access your account. Once this is done, the wizard will create a KeePass entry (or just display them for you) that has your credentials for use with the specified URL.
