Emborg – Front-End to Borg Backup

Emborg is a simple command line utility to orchestrate backups. It is built as a front-end to Borg, a powerful and fast deduplicating backup program. With Emborg, you specify all the details about your backups once in advance, and then use a very simple command line interface for your day-to-day activities. The details are contained in ~/.config/emborg. That directory contains a file (settings) that contains shared settings, and then another file for each backup configuration you have.

You can find the documentation on ReadTheDocs. You can download and install the latest stable version of the code from PyPI using:

pip3 install --user emborg

You can find the latest development version of the source code on Github.

Enjoy,
-Ken
