Small but customizable utility to create backups and store them in cloud storage providers.

How to install

Download from releases the latest wheel package and install it. It is recommended to use a virtual environment to do that. We will show you this way.

What do yo need?:

  • An OS different from Windows (Windows is unsupported) :(
  • Python 3.7 or higher

First select a folder where all the needed files will be stored. It is important not to move (or rename) this folder after installation.

Run one of those commands. If both fail, try to install python3-virtualenv (debian based) or pip3 install virtualenv (on macOS).

python3 -m venv .venv
python3 -m virtualenv .venv

When you have the virtual environment created, you have to activate it. With this, you can run python commands and everything you do, will alter the virtual env, not the real one (and so, you don't need sudo to do things).

. .venv/bin/activate
# Download the .whl package
pip install --upgrade setuptools wheel
pip install mdbackup*.whl

Now you can run the utility (only if you have enabled the virtual env) with mdbackup. In this folder it is recommended to store the config folder.

Note: to be able to use some of the cloud storage and secrets backends, you will be requested to install some packages. Go to the documentation to see what is needed.

Documentation

Can be found at mdbackup.majorcadevs.com or at the docs folder.

To make the documentation, install the requirements in docs/requirements.txt and run mkdocs build --config-file=mkdocs.yaml.
