git-annex-assistant ā€” automatically sync changes

Synopsis

git annex assistant

Description

Watches for changes to files in the current directory and its subdirectories, and automatically syncs them to other remotes.

Options

--autostart

Automatically starts the assistant running in each repository listed in the file ~/.config/git-annex/autostart

This is typically started at boot, or when you log in.

--startdelay=N

Wait N seconds before running the startup scan. This process can be expensive and you may not want to run it immediately upon login.

When --autostart is used, defaults to --startdelay=5.

--foreground

Avoid forking to the background.

--stop

Stop a running daemon in the current repository.

--autostop

The complement to --autostart; stops all running daemons in the repositories listed in the autostart file.
