flashfreeze

Easy background backup and version control for your files.

Designed for anyone working on files and wanting incremental background backups eg. writers. Hopefully (eventually) usable by non-technical users.

Flashfreeze adds, commits and pushes the entire contents of a directory to git at a given interval.

Inspired by Flashbake.

Install

npm install flash freeze

Usage

node flashfreeze -f [directory to backup] -i [interval in minutes]

The commit message is read from a file status.txt in the directory to backup. If the file does not exist then a fixed commit message is used.

TODO

  • Install and setup guide for non-technical users
  • Plugins

See issues for full list.
