💭 Why / What?

Autorestic is a wrapper around the amazing restic. While being amazing the restic cli can be a bit overwhelming and difficult to manage if you have many different locations that you want to backup to multiple locations. This utility is aimed at making this easier 🙂.

  • YAML config files, no CLI
  • Incremental -> Minimal space is used
  • Backup locations to multiple backends
  • Snapshot policies and pruning
  • Fully encrypted
  • Before/after backup hooks
  • Exclude pattern/files
  • Cron jobs for automatic backup
  • Backup & Restore docker volume
  • Generated completions for [bash|zsh|fish|powershell]
