Bob

A Tarsnap OS X GUI client.

Tarsnap is a secure online backup service. Bob provides a GUI interface for managing Tarsnap backups.

Bob is work in progress and hence we take no responsibility for lost data.

Dependencies

Setup

Install Tarsnap by either compiling it your self or through Brew:

brew install tarsnap

If you have installed Tarsnap through Brew, you might need to do a symbolic link from /usr/local/bin/tarsnap to /usr/bin/tarsnap

After that, follow the four steps on their Getting Started.

Then you need to install Tarsnapper, e.g. with easy_install

easy_install tarsnapper

After the installation of both Tarsnap and Tarsnapper you can enjoy Bob by compiling or downloading the latest binary.
