SkyDrive for Fedora?

I have been researching SkyDrive for Fedora. I know there are plenty of other alternatives out there for Cloud Storage, but SkyDrive is my favorite by far and I have way more storage than the others give me, SkyDrive gives me 25GB of online storage and I have almost my whole life on there. I do not like the web interface as in Linux it is quite buggy and flashy... literally, as is the new Outlook.com where I have my email. I am looking for a way to get SkyDrive on Fedora without using the web interface for it. I have saw on multiple searches that it can be done, but I do not understand any of them as I am still pretty new to Linux in general. I come from Ubuntu which in my opinion is much easier, but I am now on Fedora because it is much more stable, better support for my wireless, and much more beautiful than that clunky Unity... but putting that aside, I need access to my SkyDrive, can someone offer a solution? Thanks!
David

If I am not mistaken, in GNOME, you can setup your live account as an "Online Accounts". Once you do that, you can use gnome-documents to access your files from skydrive. I remember reading a blog about that ...

Yes but I have to wait for Fedora 18 or somehow update Gnome from 3.4.x to 3.6.x. Unless someone can give me a .rpm for the latest releases of gnome-documents, gnome-online-accounts, and libzapojit. There is a GIT for them but I have no idea how to use and install from a GIT repo...
