unison-tray

Provides a tray icon for the great unison file synchronizer.

Features

  • A tray icon with idle, syncing and conflict states.
  • Drop down menu, allowing to sync in background or in foreground (Terminal app).
  • Detects file system changes with local root (read from ~/.unison/default.prf) and automatically syncs (delayed).
  • Syncs periodically, configurable in syncer.cfg (default every 5 minutes).
  • Syncs on application start.
  • It just calls unison -batch (background) or unison -auto (foreground for conflict resolution). It does not configure unison in any other way.

Compatibility

  • Mac OS X (Tested on 10.9 Mavericks and 10.8.4 Mountain Lion)
  • python 2.7
  • virtualenv.
  • A working and configured unison installation, preferably installed with homebrew.

Installation

$ git clone https://github.com/jone/unison-tray.git
$ cd unison-tray
$ virtualenv . --setuptools
$ source bin/activate
$ pip install -r requirements.txt

pip install will install PyObjC, which may take awhile.

The path to unison is expected to be /usr/local/bin/unison, change it in the syncer.cfg if you have installed unison in another path.

Usage

Be sure your unison configuration (~/.unison/default.prf) is configured so that it works with only executing $ unison without root arguments.

You should create the initial copy before starting unison-tray, since unison asks questions.

Start the tray icon from within the unison-tray directory with:

$ bin/utray

From the menubar icon, "Sync now" will sync in the background, whereas "Resolve conflicts" will sync in a Terminal window. All errors and messages are logged to var/utray.log in the unison-tray directory.

Autostart

Add the utray.app to your autostart apps in the Mac OS user configuration.
