Borg front end.

Project description
Author:Ken Kundert

Emborg is a simple command line utility to orchestrate backups. It is built as a front-end to Borg, a powerful and fast deduplicating backup program. With Emborg, you specify all the details about your backups once in advance, and then use a very simple command line interface for your day-to-day activities. The details are contained in ~/.config/emborg. That directory contains a file (settings) that contains shared settings, and then another file for each backup configuration you have.

Use of Emborg does not preclude the use of Borg directly on the same repository. The philosophy of Emborg is to provide commands that you would use often and in an interactive manner with the expectation that you would use Borg directly for the remaining commands.

An alternative to Emborg is Borgmatic. It seems largely focused on the archive creation process and offers little for the other management tasks such as monitoring (due, list, manifest), restoration (extract, restore, mount), and maintenance (check, prune). borgmatic recently added support for the Borg extract command.
