Unison File Synchronizer

Unison is a file-synchronization tool for Unix and Windows. See the manual for a detailed look at it's capabilities.

Unison comes in two flavors:

  • Text mode only version (debian package name: unison)
  • GTK-based visual version (debian package name: unison-gtk)

Unison can sync

  • between two directory trees on the same computer or
  • between directory trees on two separate machines.

For syncing desktop machine and neo we use the latter. The recommended way to do this is the remote shell method.
