This is a drop-box clone that watches a local directory for changes and uses Amazon S3 for backup and syncing.
Multiple clients can run and stay in sync by running the watcher.
How to use
Simply specify the Amazon connection information in the config.yaml file (see config_example.yaml for the structure), then run the drop_receptacle ruby script.
It currently is set to fairly frequent polling of S3, so you may want to tweak the interval in the source to better suit your needs.
