Animated usage GIF

Exclude files or directories by creating .sshyncignore in your source root (see repo root for example).

Default rsync options:

  • a – archive mode
  • v – verbose
  • u – update
  • z – compress
$ npm install sshync -g

# Optional: Copy local SSH key to destination
# OSX: $ brew install ssh-copy-id
$ ssh-copy-id <user@ip[:port]>
# initialize sshync
$ sshync <source> <user@ip[:port]:destination>
          source:       local source file/folder.
          destination:  remote destination file/folder.
