Encrypted backup using rsync algorithm

Project description


Thank you for trying duplicity. To install, run:

python install

The build process can be also be run separately:

python build

If you want to use python 3 replace `python` with `python3`

The default prefix is /usr, so files are put in /usr/bin,
/usr/share/man/, etc. An alternate prefix can be specified
using the --prefix=<prefix> option. For example:

python install --prefix=/usr/local
export PYTHONPATH='/usr/local/lib/python.x/site-packages/'
/usr/local/bin/duplicity -V`


* Python 2.7, or 3.5 to 3.10
* librsync v0.9.6 or later
* GnuPG for encryption
* see `requirements.txt` for complete list

If you install from the source package, you will also need:

* Python development files, normally found in module 'python-dev'.
* librsync development files, normally found in module 'librsync-dev'.

Install python modules by performing the following command in duplicity's root directory:

pip install -r requirements.txt

pip3 install -r requirements.txt
if you're using python3
