File processing automation

Project Description

Auto Ant

AutoAnt is a generic processing automation package. It’s ideal for file processing, if you need to process/syncronize/move files on several directories to different locations (local or remote) and then renaming/moving/deleting or what ever you want. This is the answer.

It’s extremely flexible and extensible, just describe your Sys Admin file/something processing nightmare on a JSON file.


Take a look at installation, quick how to tutorials, API reference etc: Documentation
