What is it?
Leech is a file synchronization tool designed for low administrative overhead. It auto-discovers
other local machines and exchanges shared files. The user merely needs to run a node on each machine
and setup logical sharepoints in order to begin automatically exchanging files.
Leech's closest cousin is rsync, but it differs in several ways:
- No master copy -- Each machine can manage its copy of a share independently.
- Constantly updating -- Each machines advertises its file contents and automatically
exchanges new and changed files with its peers.
- Fault tolerant -- Leech handles clock skew differences, local file deletes, and
crashed nodes. It is optimized for a network in which machines do not have a high uptime.
(e.g., laptops, Windows machines)
Leech is currently in an alpha state. You can download it here.
