Mirall synchronizes your folders with another computer.
The ultimate goals of Mirall are:
- Network location aware: should not try to sync against your NAS if you are not in the home network
- It is a zero-interaction tool. So forget about resolving conflicts.
- It should work silently and realiably.
Mirall is in early stages of development, and may still eat your files or hang your computer.
- Network location awareness not implemented yet
- Current version supports local and remote (sftp and smb) folders.
- It is powered by csync (http://www.csync.org), however the user does not know and other tools will be incorporated to provide other functionality.
- No sane way to backup conflicting versions yet, this should be solved in a near csync release (--conflictcopy, available in Jann's branch). Right now the newest copy wins.
- You can't remove folder configurations Workaround: delete ~/.local/share/data/Mirall/folders/$alias and restart
- Some tasks block the GUI (initial setup of watchers)
- May be some concurrency issues
- Improve robustness to minimize user interaction
- Improve feedback and sync results
- Add support for other folder types: tarsnap, duplicity, git (SparkleShare)
- Linux (currently it uses inotify to detect file changes)
- unison installed in the local and remote machine (you should not care if you got Mirall with your favorite distribution)
- 1-click install available in software.opensuse.org
Building the source code
You need Qt 4.7 and cmake:
mkdir build cd build cmake .. make
To generate a tarball:
mkdir build cd build cmake .. make package_source
