pip install igloo
For igloo to work, you must have activated key authentication (i.e. you must be able to ssh into the remote machine without entering a password or passphrase).
The exhaustive list of options can be viewed with igloo --help.
Here are a few common usage patterns (note that each --option has a shorter version which can found in the help message):
Setup the default remote URL:
$ igloo --config add user@host:path/to/remote/directory
Copy two files to this remote URL:
$ igloo first.ext second.log first.ext second.log
Download the first file back:
$ igloo --remote first.ext first.ext
View the list of files in the remote directory that end in .log:
$ igloo --remote --list --expr='\.log$' second.log
Add a new remote URL corresponding to profile public:
$ igloo --config add user@host:another/directory/public public
Transfer all the files in the current directory to the remote public URL, overwriting any preexisting files:
$ igloo --profile=public --force * first.ext second.log
Download all files from the remote directory that don’t end in .log, and delete them from the remote directory afterwards:
$ igloo --remote --move --no-match --expr='\.log$' first.ext
View list of profiles:
$ igloo --config list default [user@host:path/to/remote/directory] public [user@host:another/directory/public]
Read from standard input and save remotely as hello.log
$ echo 'Hello world!' | igloo --stream hello.log hello.log
