Truck – the rsync client

OS X 10.8.0
Still using FTP? Truck hauls data 30x faster thanks to its modern rsync engine (included) which compresses, de-duplicates and encrypts – giving significantly higher performance and security, right from the first transfer. Setup takes 3 clicks (no command line), then just drag-and-drop to transfer. Unlock the performance of rsync with the simplicity of Truck. – Upload and download via rsync by simply dragging-and-dropping. No command-line interaction required. – Browse, rename, copy, move and delete remote files very quickly and easily. – Works over a securely encrypted SSH tunnel (included; no setup required). – Includes the latest rsync 3.1.2 – the same algorithm found at the heart of Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, iCloud, SkyDrive, OwnDrive, etc. – Connects to any remote machine. – Checkboxes to quickly enable rsync’s most powerful features – such as backups/version-controlling, bandwidth-management, retention of partial transfers, etc. – Push-update the remote system's version of rsync (includes precompiled binaries to suit a variety of remote machines). – Advanced GUI controls to selectively tune over 125 other rsync options. Even application-defined defaults can be overridden for a near-command-line level of control. – Autocompletion and inline documentation provided for each option. – Specify when the option applies (e.g. when uploading/downloading/both). – Enable ‘scavenging’: a preference to boost transfers by systematically employing rsync’s –copy-dest option; essentially reusing data from existing files in recently-visited directories. Fuzzy matching means that even files that are non-identical can be used as a basis for boosting. – Filter rules to include/exclude items based on text matching (or advanced pattern matching). – Toggle visibility of hidden files. – Specify ‘initial paths’ – for connecting straight into the given directory. – Fine tune custom preferences for each direction (upload/download) for each server. – Save multiple Favourites and work with multiple servers in multiple windows. – Bonjour browsing to easily connect to servers found nearby. – Use your SSH RSA private key instead of a password to connect to AWS, Google Cloud, etc. – An ‘Open Terminal Here’ action to quickly jump into an SSH session in – pre-authenticated and ready in the right directory. – Detailed operation logging. – Filter any view of files and use the keyboard to navigate. Benchmarks: 18x faster – uploading a new installation of WordPress. 30x faster – downloading a used instance of WordPress. 12x faster – sending an app to another computer in the office. No data was pre-existing at the destination, these were all first-time transfers – all gains are thanks to rsync’s compression and de-duplication. Comparisons were made versus the fastest FTP and SFTP apps for Mac, and native SMB sharing.
