A command line interface for editing files from your ScraperWiki box, on your local machine.
A command line interface for editing files from your box, on your local machine.
The perfect partner if you're developing ScraperWiki tools, and want to use your normal text editor like TextMate or Sublime Text.
Supports two alternative workflows:
- Copying the remote box files to your local machine, then pushing changes.
- Mounting the remote box as a local filesystem, using SSHFS.
swbox clone fegy5tq – Makes a local copy of email@example.com
swbox clone g6ut126@free - Makes a local copy of firstname.lastname@example.org
swbox mount fegy5tq - Mounts email@example.com as a local filesystem
Git clone the swbox repo to somewhere safe.cd ~ # feel free to change this directorygit clone git://github.com/scraperwiki/swbox.gitcd swbox
Add swbox to your $PATH, so you can type "swbox" from anywhere on your filesystem.ln -s $(pwd)/swbox.coffee /usr/local/bin/swbox

swbox clone abcd123@freeor
swbox mount wxyz789@ds)

swbox pushsince it doesn't actually sync, it removes any files on the destination that aren't present on the local copy.
- fixed a bug that caused
swbox sync/pushto loop forever when invoked outside of a local box clone
swbox cloneno longer takes an optional destination directory – it will always create a clone, in new directory named after the box, in the current working directory
/swboxsymbolic link in root directory – it's no longer needed
- standardised display of required and optional arguments in help messages
swbox synccommand to synchronise local changes inside a clone, back up to the original box
