What are good command line HTTP clients?
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts is a very famous quote from Aristotle, a Greek philosopher and scientist. This quote is particularly pertinent to Linux. In my view, one of Linux's biggest strengths is its synergy. The usefulness of Linux doesn't derive only from the huge raft of open source (command line) utilities. Instead, it's the synergy generated by using them together, sometimes in conjunction with larger applications.

  • fileq
    fileq transfers files from an incoming queue (directory) to a list of destinations. Destinations can only be directories on remote hosts. The respective transfers are performed using the sftp command line utility from the OpenSSH package.
  • fsync
    fsync is a Perl script which allows for file synchronization between remote hosts, containing functionality similar to that of the rsync and CVS packages.
  • multi-rsync
    mrsync transfers whole files from one master machine to many remote machines in a LAN using Unix sockets' multicasting capability. It has congestion control so that it won't jam the network traffic relentlessly.
  • offmirror
    offline files tree mirroring utility allows you to synchronize file trees offline.
  • OrgaDoc
    GNU OrgaDoc has been designed to easily copy and maitain a pool of documents between computers. You can synchronise your documents pool with rsync or unison. You don't need to install a database server (like MySql or PostgreSql), a HTTP server, a script language (like php, perl, ...)
    PFARS is mainly used to sync servers in LVS clusters but also has many other uses. It is based on rsync over SSH and has native support for the Debian package system.
  • Program Version Syncer
    Program Version Syncer checks for updates to programs via ftp or http and downloads them. pvs is smart enough to only download the patches to the programs if they are available.
  • reclinker
    reclinker is a recursive symlinking utility. It mirrors a hierarchy of files by means of symlinks. It's similar to GNU Stow, but it has no dependencies, is free of forced, confusing package management terminology (like stow dir, target dir, package), and supports both absolute and relative linking, linking into existing hierarchies, and access control for created links and directories. It also has a feature which makes it similar to cpio pass-through mode: it can take a list of files on stdin, and link only those files which occur in the list.
  • Remosync
    Remosync is a file synchronisation program that can mirror two directories either on the local disk or across a network. It identifies files that have changed by running a CRC check on each file if the CRC's are different then it will copy the file from the source directory to the destination directory.

  • rsync-bc

  • syrep
    syrep is a generic file repository synchronization tool. It may be used to synchronize large file hierarchies bidirectionally by exchanging patch files. Syrep is truely peer-to-peer, no central servers are involved.
  • USBSink
    USBSink is a GNOME program for file synchronization over USB. It is designed for users of removable drives, such as flash drives or external hard disks. The goal is to completly automate data transfers after a task has been defined. With file monitoring and hardware detection features, USBSink is able to respond and act according to relevant events across the desktop.
  • Warsync
    Warsync is a server replication system mainly used to sync servers in LVS clusters but also has many other uses. It is based on rsync over ssh and has native support for the Debian package synchronization.
  • weex

  • wput
    wput is a tiny program that looks like wget and does as the name suggests exactly the opposite: It uploads files or recursivly whole directories to a ftp-server and supports resuming.
  • zsync
    zsync is a file transfer program. It allows you to download a file from a remote web server, where you have a copy of an older version of the file on your computer already. zsync downloads only the new parts of the file. It uses the same algorithm as rsync.
