git-annex-assistant - automatically sync changes

git annex assistant

Watches for changes to files in the current directory and its subdirectories, and automatically syncs them to other remotes.

Automatically starts the assistant running in each repository listed in the file ~/.config/git-annex/autostart
This is typically started at boot, or when you log in.
Wait N seconds before running the startup scan. This process can be expensive and you may not want to run it immediately upon login.
When --autostart is used, defaults to --startdelay=5.
Avoid forking to the background.
Stop a running daemon in the current repository.
The complement to --autostart; stops all running daemons in the repositories listed in the autostart file.
