RemoteCp

Description

RemoteCp is a command line tool intended to facilitate copying files accross the internet. You need to install the gem on both source and destination computers. Since it uses Amason S3, you need to create a S3 Bucket and configure the source and destination computer with the bucket keys.

Installation

Install the gem

$ gem install remote_cp

Setup your remote cp by editing ~/.remote_cp config file:

:access_key_id: MY_ACCESS_KEY
:secret_access_key: MY_SECRET
:bucket_name: MY_BUCKET_NAME

Usage

To copy a file to the remote clipboard:

machineA> rt cp filename

The file can be pasted on another machine if remote_cp gem has been installed with the same bucket credentials.

machineB> rt p

You can also copy directories

machineA> rt cp dirname

To paste the copied directory in the current directory

machineB> /home/tata>$ rt p
machineB> /home/tata>$ ls -d */
/dirname

You can copy stdin to the remote clipboard:

machineA> ls -l | rt cp

You can also dump the remote clipboard to the stdout.

machineB> rt cat
