Description

rbsync is a ruby wrapper for rsync that simplifies simple pushing and pulling to and from remote filesystems.  
Push and pull actions can be performed from the command line anywhere in the file system.

Prerequisites

ruby
rsync

Usage

> pull_from [user@]host [path] [rsync_options]
> push_to   [user@]host [path] [rsync_options]

* path defaults to current directory if not supplied.
* rsync_options can be any option supported by rsync, such as --dry-run or --delete.  See rsync documentation.

Examples

Simple Example:
> pull_from server ~/mp3 

Pulling server:/home/user/mp3/ to /home/user/mp3/

Example with mappings and rsync options defined in ~/.rbsync:
> push_to server ~/mp3

Pushing server:/Users/macuser/Music/mp3/ to /home/linuxuser/mp3/ with options 
--progress -avzut -e ssh --exclude .DS_Store --dry-run

~/.rbsync

.rbsync is a yaml file that should be place in the users home directory 
that contains path mappings and default rsync options.

Sample .rbsync file:

mappings:
  /Users/macuser: /home/linuxuser
  /Users/macuser/Music: /home/linuxuser/music

rsync: --progress -avzut -e ssh --exclude .DS_Store

The mappings section contains a regex expression and it's corresponding map-to 
value.
The rsync section contains the options that are used everything the push_to or
pull_from commands are used.
