Projects / pirsyncd


pirysncd is an attempt to write a daemon to watch a directory for kernel write notifications and then execute an rsync command to synchronize two different directories (local or remote). This is a poor man's mirroring or an alternative (not so) real data replication mechanism based on Pyinotify.
