Syncs files between your home computers using rsync. This is merely a convenient wrapper around rsync commands, rather than a sync utility by itself.
To copy local files from the given path spec to another computer, overwriting everything that's there:
nvie@MacBook$ syncto -v vincent@iMac.local Projects/syncfrom
To pull changes from the other computer, overwriting your local copy:
nvie@MacBook$ syncfrom -v vincent@iMac.local Projects/syncfrom
syncfrom will keep the names of the directories used
identical on both systems. It is not possible to change the directory names
when using these wrappers. If you want that kind of control, use rsync
If your path spec is a directory inside your home directory, the remote part of the rsync command is automatically converted to the user's home directory on the remote end, too, even if the username is different.
You can spec your sync path using either of the following notations:
nvie@MacBook ~/Projects/syncfrom$ syncfrom -v vincent@iMac.local . nvie@MacBook ~$ syncfrom -v vincent@iMac.local Projects/syncfrom nvie@MacBook /tmp$ syncfrom -v vincent@iMac.local /Users/nvie/Projects/syncfrom
Each of these commands has exactly the same effect---they will push all files
inside the (local) directory
/Users/nvie/Projects/syncfrom to the remote
syncfrom currently take only one path spec to sync.
Put these files somewhere on your
I built this purely to scratch my own itch. It is not guaranteed to work on your system.
