| Synk is a directory synchroniser -
what might be more commonly known in the Unix world as a mirroring tool.
It's reason for existence is to create "connections" between directories,
so that they can easily be kept in sync with each other. Synk will copy
all the files from one directory to the other, and then when run at a later
date it will copy only the new or changed files in order to synchronise
the files in the two directories.
This is version 0.1 of Synk, but it already supports the minimum
number of features needed to be a credible application. Lets focus on
what it CAN do..
- It can create one or two way connections
between two URLs, over any protocol that KDE's KIO architecture supports.
- It can synchronise these connections,
copying only files that have a different modification date or size from
those found locally, or those not present locally. It will not delete
files that are not present on the remote server.
- It will automatically save the list of
connections when closed, and reload it when next started.
- It still lacks some configuration options.
- Currently it does not manage to correctly
copy the modification times for files copied from some (all?) remote sources.
- Synk may crash/not work/destroy all of
your files/install windows 95 or in some other way violate your computer.
You have of course, no warranty.
