SparkleShare Comments

Great tool

Positive Comment by Line5
about SparkleShare and Git May 2013

We use this great tool for our daily work:
The server can be a simple linux server or even a diskstation. Setup of the server needed some time for the first time, but having understood how it works, the concept is really simple and convenient. SparkleShare synchronizes automatically all data between designated directories on the computer and the server - and if used with GIT, for example, even keeps old versions of the file. It hence is an amazing solution for backing up project directories on laptops.

[Edited by Line5, May 15]
Ah, and the client works perfectly on Windows!

Sparkleshare does not support Windows. It's GNU/Linux and Mac only (at the time of writing).
