The most informative Home-media backup solution.

Project description


Linter: Ruff Dependency management: Poetry Python version Release version DeepSource issues Build status

Slipstream's goal is to provide the user's a dead-simple process for backing up their legally owned home-media to a wide array of formats, including a full backup. Slipstream can be used with it's GUI, as CLI, or as an importable package.

It's trying to be different from the other solutions out there by providing as much information about the home-media as one could need while being stupid simple to use.



Windows Installers are available on the Releases page.

Alternatively you can download and install Slipstream from PIP/PyPI:

$ pip install pslipstream

Note If pip gives you a warning about a path not being in your PATH environment variable then promptly add that path then close all open command prompt Windows, or running slipstream won't work as it will not be recognized as a program.

Voilà 🎉 - You now have the pslipstream package installed!
Launch it by typing slipstream in your Terminal or Windows Run.
