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 remote directory, open a new terminal and enter:

protosync dest

Protosync will then print a command like this:

protosync source 85736c2686be4218ba789a50e2425564

Run this command in your local source directory.

You'll see it print:

Code synced to remote directory

And that's it!

You local code has now been synced to the remote server.
Just enter the same command wheneve you want to sync.

Note: you'll need to keep the remote terminal running for the sync to work.


  • Protosync uses your .gitignore file to automatically ignore unnecessary files.
  • Protosync ignores files larger than 10Mb to prevent syncing of unwanted binaries.
  • Protosync uses end-to-end encryption when syncing your files. There server cannot decrypt your data.
