TowerCrane helps you keep your large local datasets in the cloud

Project description


towercrane is an easy to use commandline tool for keeping your large project files on the cloud. It simply searches for specific file extensions in your project and let your simply upload and downlaod them between your local and cloud. It's designed to work with AWS S3, Google Cloud Storage and other storage services in the future. towercrane is desined for Linux and macOS. Support for windows is in the backlog.

I used to run out of space on my laptop all time. very often it was because of large datasets or other formats of project files, which I didn't want to remove from my local. I wrote towecrane and decided to make it open source for other people to contribute to.
