File/Directory syncing over scp
scpy is a command line tool to autosync files and directories to remote servers over ssh. For windows users, there is a program called winscp that can automatically keep a remote directory up to date with a local one. I didn’t find a tool I liked to do this on linux, so I made this one.
It follows the usage of the regular scp command with a couple of slight differences.
- There is no need to supply the -r option for directories. It determines itself whether it’s a directory or not
- You can only push files to remote servers, you can’t pull them back
- There is no globbing support (yet)
scpy workspace/src email@example.com:/
This will sync the local folder ./workspace/src to /src on 192.168.1.2. It overwrites the src folder on the remote machine.:
scpy workspace/src/file1.py workspace/src/file2.py firstname.lastname@example.org:workspace/src/
This will synchronize the 2 local files file1.py and file2.py to /home/username/workspace/src/ on 192.168.1.2:
scpy workspace/src/file1.py workspace/src/file2.py email@example.com:workspace/src/ firstname.lastname@example.org:/opt/
This is the same as above but it will sync the same files to both 192.168.1.2 and host.com
