Announcing urbit-sync, a small ruby

script to initialize and synchronize your local filesystem and your mounted urbit pier.

I created this because it was useful for me at this very early stage of urbit’s life. It lets me check out the repos I am working on and not worry about keeping the files in sync. It also lets me define the packages that I am including in my base pier setup so when one crashes, getting another one fully set up is a single command.

This is the project ~palfun-foslup called “Fancy.” ;)


It is not a substitute for an urbit package management system. ~rophex-hashes has been doing some great early work on a prototype for this called urbit-package. See this post on fora and the github repository.

Please see the linked repo above for full instructions. I’d love to hear your feedback if you find this useful.
