Quicksand is a free Mac app that syncs your recently opened files with the cloud.
Quicksand takes the hassle out of cloud storage: every time you open a file, it’s automatically synced to your favourite cloud storage solution, without you even having to think about it. This means that you’ll always have access to the files you’ve been working on recently, wherever you are, whenever you need them.
Push any file to an etherpad and edit it collaborativly. Changes in the pad get refelected in the file instantly.
Automatically sync files between computers via secure, distributed technology.
Bittorrent-powered, Dropbox-style file synchronisation and sharing, with AES encryption. Currently in ‘Pre-Alpha’.
Match Box is a Dropbox type clone that you can install on your personal server to remotely backup your files without worrying about Dropbox getting a hold of them.
Match Box uses the Flask web framework for the server, and all files are transfered using the HTTP protocol.
Pypush continuously monitors your local directory and immediately uploads any changes you make to your specified remote directory… You can also just make some changes locally, then periodically run pypush to synchronize all those changes to the remote directory.
What sets pypush apart is its real-time sync, and its integration with git.
csync is a file synchroniser… You can use csync for different things. The intention is to provide Roaming Home Directories for Linux but you can use it to synchronize your music collection or create a backup of a directory.
Reflect local filesystem changes on a remote system in real time, automatically. In a nutshell, you instruct pytograph that there are directory structures on your machine that match directory structures on a remote machine. It monitors the directories on your local machine for changes, then makes identical changes on the remote machine in real time via SFTP.
bitpocket is a small but smart script that does 2-way directory synchronization. It uses rsync to do efficient data transfer and tracks local file creation/removal to avoid known rsync problem when doing 2-way syncing with deletion. bitpocket can use any server which you have ssh access to for its central storage.
Open-source dropbox alternative powered by git. Collaborate on files and tasks without any extra hassle. gitdocs will automatically keep everyone’s repos in sync by pushing and pulling changes. This allows any git repo to be used as a collaborative task list, file share, or wiki for a team. Supports a web front-end allowing each repo to be accessed through your browser.
OS X-only at the moment, with Linux and Windows support ‘coming very soon’.
OfflineImap operates on a REMOTE and a LOCAL repository and synchronizes emails between them, so that you can read the same mailbox from multiple computers. The REMOTE repository is some IMAP server, while LOCAL can be either a local Maildir or another IMAP server.
I linked to offlineimap last year, but since then it’s improved a great deal—it’s faster, thanks in part to a new SQLite backend, and much more stable—so I thought I’d give it another plug.
~/.offlineimaprc I use to sync with/backup my Gmail account:
[general] metadata = ~/.local/share/offlineimap accounts = GMail maxsyncaccounts = 1 ignore-readonly = no [Account GMail] localrepository = Local remoterepository = Remote status_backend = sqlite [Repository Local] type = Maildir localfolders = ~/mail [Repository Remote] type = Gmail remotehost = imap.gmail.com remoteuser = email@example.com remotepass = yourpassword ssl = yes maxconnections = 2 realdelete = no folderfilter = lambda foldername: foldername not in ['[Google Mail]/Spam', '[Google Mail]/Bin']
NB: Gmail’s folder names differ in different countries, so you might need to edit the last line, and perhaps add some more folders to exclude (eg. ‘All Mail’).
A bash script for synchronising two directories.
A simple Dropbox-a-like written in bash that uses rsync and cron.
An SFTP-based backup and Dropboxesque sync for Mac and Windows, with the option to filter out files by name, size or modification date.
