File/Directory syncing over scp

Project Description

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)

Usage Examples

scpy workspace/src username@

This will sync the local folder ./workspace/src to /src on It overwrites the src folder on the remote machine.:

scpy workspace/src/ workspace/src/ username@

This will synchronize the 2 local files and to /home/username/workspace/src/ on

scpy workspace/src/ workspace/src/ username@

This is the same as above but it will sync the same files to both and
