Magic Folder for Tahoe-LAFS is a Free and Open file synchronization system. It detects local changes to files and uploads those changes to a Tahoe-LAFS grid. It monitors a Tahoe-LAFS grid and downloads changes to the local filesystem.
Then, to install the most recent release, just run:
pip install magic-folder
To install from source (either so you can hack on it, or just to run pre-release code), you should create a virtualenv and install into that:
git clone https://github.com/LeastAuthority/magic-folder.git
virtualenv --python=python2.7 venv
venv/bin/pip install --upgrade setuptools
venv/bin/pip install --editable .
Magic-Folder is configured via the
magic-folder command-line tool.
This tool manipulates the
magic_folders.yaml file in a Tahoe-LAFS' node's private area.
See the configuration documentation for full details.
Once Magic-Folder is configured,
functionality is provided by running a long-lived magic-folder side-car for the Tahoe-LAFS node.
Start the side-car process using the
magic-folder command line too:
magic-folder --node-directory /path/to/tahoe-lafs/node run
As long as this side-car is running, whatever magic folders are configured will be functional. The process must be restarted to read configuration changes.
To run the unit test suite:
You can pass arguments to
trial with an environment variable. For
example, you can run the test suite on multiple cores to speed it up:
