cf-plugin-sync

This is a Cloud Foundry cli plugin which gives the possibility to synchronize a local folder to a remote folder inside a Cloud Foundry app.

This way you only need to modify files inside your local folder to see changes in your app.

Note:

  • This plugin was made only for developing purpose, do not use on an app in production (ssh should be disabled in this context)
  • If you run multiple instances of your app only the first instance (index 0) will be altered.

Installation

Install from plugin repository (recommended)

NOTE: This installation method requires that your client computer has access to the internet. If internet access is not available from client computer use the manual method.

Verify you have a repo named CF-Community registered in your cf client.

cf list-plugin-repos

If the above command does not show CF-Community you can add the repo via:

cf add-plugin-repo CF-Community http://plugins.cloudfoundry.org/

Now that we have the cloud foundry community repo registered, install sync:

cf install-plugin -r CF-Community "sync"

Installation from release binaries

  1. Download latest release made for your os here: https://github.com/orange-cloudfoundry/cf-plugin-sync/releases
  2. run cf install-plugin path/to/previous/binary/downloaded

Usage

NAME:
   sync - Synchronize a folder to a container directory.

   --target value, -t value  Directory which will be sync from container.
   --force-sync, -f          Resynchronize files from remote to source even if source folder is not empty.

.syncignore

you can ignore files and directories from remote app by adding a .syncignore in the syle of a .gitignore file in source folder (or working directory).

  • If no source folder is passed, the plugin will create a folder named sync-appname
  • Root folder inside app is ~/app
  • If the source folder is not empty, data will not be resynchronized
