Application Runtime Image Manager

Project description

# app-rim
Application Runtime Image Managerc - python module enabling to manage
( backup , restore, organize ) files that get created durring usage
of applications in users profile dir. This module primarly targets
linux environments, it may work in other setups. Support for thoose
might be added in future

## Background

In linux each system user is associated with user profile dir. Next
when a user uses an application like dropbox ( or others ) a subdir
in profile is created named ".dropbox" and it stores the user
configuration of application as well as logs or other stuff app
needs to work properly.

## Goal

This project aims to build a python module that will allow the

1) Create a tar archive of application configuration ( accounting for
diffrent location of this files ie. ".config", ".local/share" ).
2) allow restoration from backup stored in a globally defined backup
3) Provide the means to reconfigure existing application files into
directory hierarchy that is more compatible with xdg definition
( configuration files go into .config temporary, files go into
.cache, logs go into var/log, others go into .local/share )

4) Provied means to detec what applications have been used by user
based on what configuration files have been created ( carefully
crafting a list of known non aplication dirs ie.
.loca/share/application )
