A Backup Tool built on Ruby

How to use

  • ruby backitup.rb “absolute-folder-path” “time”

time should be passed in 24hrs format.

For example, if you need to backup a folder ruby on your Desktop, everyday at 11:00PM for 5 days then:

  • ruby backitup.rb “/Users/utkarsh/Desktop/ruby” “23:00” “5”

If backup should be on ruby folder everyday at 12:30AM for 2 days then:

  • ruby backitup.rb “/Users/utkarsh/Desktop/ruby” “00:30” “2”


Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
