Sync Lists is a simple script for synchronizing the content files across directories.
Specifically, designed for lists, keeping the most up-to-date edits sync'd (additions & removals).
This script takes in a list of files (defined in the script), identifies the last edited and syncs the terms across all of them. This could be useful if you are keeping a blacklist across multiple microservices, websites, apps, etc. Some examples: Blacklisted Terms, IPs, CSV entries, etc.
The expected form of the files to sync are:
Item 1 Item 2 .... Item N
Where an item can represent one item to syncronize.
This could be a item, list, etc. the only requirement is that the line ends with a
If for instance, lets say we have a list of IPs we have blacklisted. If we removed:
127.0.0.1 from one of the five blacklist config files we keep for our webservices. When I run
python sync_lists.py, it'll sync across all the files and remove
