Introduction

A ctypes wrapper for librsync. Provides signature(), delta(), and patch() functions.

There are three steps necessary to synchronize a file. Two steps are performed on the source file and one on the destination.

  1. Generate a signature for the destination file.

  2. Generate a delta for the source file (using the signature).

  3. Patch the destination file using the generated delta.

Usually, these steps involve remote systems. Here is an example of synchronizing two local files.

import librsync

# The destination file.
dst = file('Resume-v1.0.pdf', 'rb')
# The source file.
src = file('Resume-v1.2.pdf', 'rb')
# Where we will write the synchronized copy.
synced = file('Resume-latest.pdf', 'wb')

# Step 1: prepare signature of the destination file
signature = librsync.signature(dst)

# Step 2: prepare a delta of the source file
delta = librsync.delta(src, signature)

# Step 3: synchronize the files.
# In many cases, you would overwrite the destination with the result of
# synchronization. However, by default a new file is created.
librsync.patch(dst, delta, synced)
