bric_dev_sync - copies dev resources (Elements and Templates) between servers
bric_dev_sync [options] source_url target_url [target_url, ...]
source_url - the url for the source server (example: http://localhost or just localhost) target_url - the url for the target server(s) (example: http://bric.bar.com or just bar.com)
--help - shows this screen --man - shows the full documentation --verbose - print a running dialogue of operations. Repeat up to three times of successively larger amounts of debugging information. --source-username - the Bricolage username to use on the source server. Defaults to the BRICOLAGE_USERNAME environment variable if set. --source-password - the password to use on the source server. Default to the BRICOLAGE_PASSWORD environment variable if set. --target-username - the Bricolage username to use on the target server(s). Defaults to the BRICOLAGE_USERNAME environment variable if set. --target-password - the password to use on the target server(s). Default to the BRICOLAGE_PASSWORD environment variable if set. --category - set to a particular category path to only copy templates in this category. --template - set to the name of a template to copy. Also accepts SQL match variables to specify groups of templates (ex. "%.pl", "story.%"). --element - set to the name of an element to copy. Also copies templates for just this element unless --no-templates is set. --template-id - set to the ID of a single template to copy. --element-id - set to the ID of a single element to copy. --site - the name of a site to copy. --with-sub - also selects sub-elements of the selected element. Useful in combination with --element or --element-id. --copy-categories - copy categories from source to target. Off by default. You will need this option to copy templates from a category on the source that does not exist in the target. --no-elements - only copies templates. This may cause failure if the source contains templates for elements that do not exist on the target. --no-templates - only copy elements. --no-deploy - by default templates are deployed after being copied. --yes - don't ask questions, assume the answer is yes and proceed. --dry-run - don't actually perform potentially destructive operations (delete, update, create, deploy). Combine with --verbose for maximum utility. --timeout - specify the HTTP timeout for SOAP requests in seconds. Defaults to 30.
This program allows you to copy development resources (elements and templates) from a source server to one or more target servers. There are two main use cases for this program:
Copying development resources from a development machine into production.
Copying development resources from a development machine to a private development environment and back again after changes are made.
For more general resource copying functionality, see the bric_soap client.
Simply copy all elements and templates from the server called "prod" to localhost:
bric_dev_sync http://prod http://localhost
Like the above, but with categories copied also:
bric_dev_sync --copy-categories prod localhost
Update prod with changes to the "Article" element and all sub-elements and associated templates:
bric_dev_sync --element Article --with-sub localhost prod
Update prod with changes with changes to all .pl templates:
bric_dev_sync --no-elements --template '%.pl' localhost prod
Distribute changes to elements and templates from localhost out to prod1, prod2 and prod3 machines:
bric_dev_sync localhost prod1 prod2 prod3
