# shasharet
Sneakernet Hash Sharing Toolkit
## what is shasharet?
A sneaker net is a "network" where people copy files over media they physically move between computers.
Most people have a different understanding on how to organise files. Traditional tools like rsync only skip existing files if the folder structure is synchronised.
Shasharet makes it possible to quickly hash the files on source and target and decide on what you transfer. If duplicate files are detected, they don't get transferred even if they're in different subfolders. You can compare two database files and get a list of
## usage
WORK IN PROGRESS – THIS IS HOW IT *SHOULD* WORK in v1.0!
shash /path/to/folder – hashes all files in given folder and prints the hashes
shash -f /path/to/database /path/to/folder – stores information about target folder in given file
shash cp /path/to/source /path/to/target – copies all files from source folders which doesn't exist in target
shash rm /path/to/source /path/to/target – deletes all files in target which are present in source
shash diff /path/to/source /path/to/target – compares shash.sqlite files in source and target and shows the differences
shash diff -f /path/to/shash.sqlite /path/to/target – compares files in database with target dir and show differences
shash dupes /path/to/src /path/to/dest – prints duplicate files in src/dest
### switches
-f file.sqlite – database file location
-o file.txt – output a text file with one file per line, relative to the basedir
--fuzzy – fuzzy matching, takes metadata into account
--fuzzy-mediainfo=FMT – fuzzy matching based on mediainfo "Inform" format tags
--include-filetypes
