The point of this application is to both simplify and automate the mounting of fuse file systems, as well as the synchronization of directories across multiple systems. I wrote this application because I had what is probably a common problem, I had a desktop with a very large hard disk, and a backup space attached, and I had a laptop with a comaratively small hard disk and no backup space. I wanted to be able to have access to all of the information in a uniform manor. I realized that it would be better to mount some directories/folders directly over sshfs or some other network based file system, while in other cases it would be better to keep the two folders/directories in sync with tools such as rsync. I searched the web for something that behaved in the way that I wanted it to, but found nothing. Eventually I resolved to write my own implementation.
Current state of the application: The current release is what I would consider pre alpha, being revision 0.2. It works on my system, but it has very little fault tolerance. It has two modules one for ftpfs and another for sshfs, I will continue to develop modules for the 0.2 system as i begin work on r0.3.
Goals for 0.3: Move passwords out of the mappings.list file and into a secure secrets file. Create a more fault tolerant environment which will test for success and failure and try other methods to gain success. Get auto mount on net-up working. And implement unmount.
Roadmap: My final goal for this project is to create a proper kde4 application, with a simple ui to mount unmount and sync directories across two or more systems, through combining various fuse file systems, and synchronization tools.
