Directory Synchronize

Here is a simple, yet very useful, python script for synchronizing contents of directories.
Tested under Mac OS X. Should work under Linux. I don’t know (or care) about Windows.


  • Synchronize files between two directories
  • Behaviour controlled through configuration file
  • Batch operation mode
  • No additional python modules required

Known Problems

  • Situation, where dirs being synchronized contain a folder and a file with the same name, is ignored
  • On Mac OS resource forks and other metadata is not being transferred (python shutil issue)

This software is in early stage of development, I would appreciate if you would give me some feedback.
