This project is now in maintenance. No new features are planned.
Backup is a system utility for Linux and Mac OS X, distributed as a RubyGem, that allows you to easily perform backup operations. It provides an elegant DSL in Ruby for modeling your backups. Backup has built-in support for various databases, storage protocols/services, syncers, compressors, encryptors and notifiers which you can mix and match. It was built with modularity, extensibility and simplicity in mind.
Project Status: Maintenance-Only
This project is not under active development, although we will continue to provide support for current users, and at least one more maintenance release: version 5.0. The version 5.0 release will include support for Ruby 2.4, and various other fixes. Future releases of Backup will only include bug fixes.
If you use this project and would like to develop it further, please introduce yourself on the maintainers wanted ticket.
