generally programs don't mess around around in the internal file trees of other tools
with the query-language, is it possible to get the "latest" entry (from timestamp tag point of vue) ? I am looking to extract (bupstash restore) the latest snapshot (name=backup.tar and ...)
doing external processing on "bupstash list" output isn't a very good way for me, as I am using BUPSTASH_KEY_COMMAND with explicit password asking, and it means asking password twice (one for "list", another for "restore"), or locally store the key
@semarie sorry for the late reply, was away. I don't think there is another way at the moment.
I considered adding some post processing to the queries
like limit 1
It's definitely something I will consider adding
@semarie another thing is to use something like gpg agent to retain keys in memory for some duration
ssh(1) can usually also be configured via ssh_config host-blocks
Is it possible to have more than one "remote" and switch bewteen them? Maybe one on an SSH and one on a local external disk?
@snan you can just change the -r flag ? Another way is to use the sync command to transfer items between repositories
Nice. I'm looking forward to getting to know this app. Also I run Debian and am gonna be backing up from it, but my friend's SSH server is on Mac OS using the brew edition of bupstash. Were there any big bugs in the past i.e. is there any particular version number I should be looking out for? I've heard that brew can get a li'l bit old but I don't have a Mac so I don't know
Also, thanks for the help with -r or with sync
@snan the versions currently need to match most of the time - but there are no serious bugs I am aware of
