jsbackup

Build Status npm version

A backup utility written in pure TypeScript.

Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes. See Installing for instructions on getting a production ready product.

git clone https://github.com/rugglcon/jsbackup
cd jsbackup
npm install
nvm use // this ensures you're always using a supported version of node
npm test

Prerequisites

nvm, npm and nodejs are the only requirements.

Installing

Install locally from npm:

npm install jsbackup

Install globally from npm:

npm install -g jsbackup

Or install from the cloned repo:

npm run dev

Examples:

# providing files to the program 
$ jsbackup -c out.tar.gz file1.txt file2.txt
 
# extracting files 
$ jsbackup -x out.tar.gz
import { compressFiles, extractTarball } from 'jsbackup';
 
// compresses a list of files
// Promise chaining example
compressFiles('foo.tar.gz', 'foo.txt').then(() => {
    console.log('Compressed files!');
}).catch(err => {
    console.error('Oh no!');
});
 
// using async/await
await compressFiles('foo.tar.gz', 'foo.txt');
 
// extracts a tarball
// Promise chaining example
extractTarball('foo.tar.gz').then(() => {
    console.log('Extracted files!');
}).catch(err => {
    console.error('Oh no!');
});
 
// using async/await
await extractTarball('foo.tar.gz');

Running the tests

jest is used to test jsbackup. To run the automated test suites, run npm test.

Roadmap

  • Support more types of compression (zip, bz2, 7z, etc.)
    • Extraction goes along with those
  • Support extracting to a specific directory
  • Support extracting more than 1 file at a time

Contributing

Don't really have many guidelines yet, just make sure to be descriptive in any issue submissions (i.e. please provide OS, node version, npm version, and possibly what kind of shell environment you're using. Any other information you could provide would be helpful as well) and remember to run the tests before submitting a PR, and to add tests for any features you might add to the project.
