Trigger Action Post-Sync

Recommended Posts

It would be really really flexible if after BTSync figures out that it has completed syncing a FOLDER let's say, that for that FOLDER you can specify a command to run after the sync completes.

 

A wonderful use would be to maybe run a script that does a GIT ADD/COMMIT/PUSH on the FOLDER after syncing is done. It creates a world of opportunity to handle all sorts of network and peer arrangements that you may not have thought of.

 

And since there is a PostSync, I guess if BTSync scans and figures out that a FOLDER is out of sync, you could have a PreSync action trigger as well. I can't think of what I'd do with that, but that's not the point. Creating useful tools is the point.

 

So with the PostSync action calling a Git script, I could log changes with concrete commits that maybe get pushed out somewhere. Sure there is a chance someone copies files and then adds some more changes after BTSync started syncing, but that's OK.. on the other end it would result in 2 (or more) Git commits right after another.

Are you aware that there's an API for Sync?

 

It's unlikely to be something that's added to the Sync application itself... as "advanced" control like the ability to "trigger" actions/programs post-sync would be something to accomplish via the API.

I did not realize that. Looking into this. I still feel that having a PostSync command would be much easier to use and very powerful. Someone could kick off a script to send an email for example, if someone wanted to be alerted of something, or whatever.. maybe do a disk size check after and then alert, or even do some customized cleaning up of the archive folder.  Things that a sys admin could do without breaking into an API development.


I don't understand why is there a request for a key?

Hi, 

 

Bittorrent Sync is a really great Software, we use it over Internet with a few PCs.

 

So is it possible to Develop a feature, that after the Sync finish starting a other Job? 

 

for Example: after Finishing the Sync Job starting a run Job (sh or bat file )

 

Thanks and Regards
