Sync code with a remote server in real time

Project description


Protosync syncs code seamlessly between your local development repo and a remote server.

No more repeated git commits or long rsync commands just to test code out on the server.


pip install protosync

Quick Start

In your local source directory, open a new terminal and enter:

protosync source

Protosync will then print a command like this:

protosync dest 7dd2dd14b3734321a69a5492d69b4c2b

In your remote destination directory, open a new terminal and run this command.

You'll see it print:

Syncing directory to source

And that's it!

Just make changes in your local directory and see it automatically synced across to the remote directory.

Note: you'll need to keep both terminals running for the sync to work.


  • Protosync uses your .gitignore file to automatically ignore unnecessary files.
  • If you're worried about network usage, Protosync generates about 2kb/s of traffic.
