I have written about "sky" here:
You can find it at:
Here is the description:
If you have a good web hosting, you may have run into a pattern, where you are
uploading files to it for other people to download and need to find the URL
where they were uploaded to. Thing is - recalling the exact Rsync (= a file
uploader) command and then going to the web browser to access the URL is
time-consuming, and repetitive. sky, written in Perl using Moo and available on
CPAN, aims to fix all that.
Here is a sample invocation from the web-site:
shlomif at telaviv1:~$ sky up /home/music/Music/mp3s/Thierry\ de\ Massia/Elements\
essentiels/01\ -\ Le\ vent.ogg X11 forwarding request failed on channel 0
sending incremental file list
01 - Le vent.ogg
5271287 100% 147.24kB/s 0:00:34 (xfer#1, to-check=0/1)
sent 5272011 bytes received 31 bytes 87141.19 bytes/sec
total size is 5271287 speedup is 1.00
shlomif at telaviv1:~$
As you can see, we just specified the file, and it divined the rsync command
and gave us the resultant URL. Convenient.
sky requires a configuration file in ~/.config/Perl/App-Sky/app_sky_conf.yml
such as this one:
And it uses the basename_re to figure out where to upload it later. The next
features I would like to see added are an ability to specify the target
directory or alternatively override the target section, and naturally - better
documentation. But I'm happy with what I have so far.
