My use case is that I import media from my iphone/gopro to my laptop. I then want to upload them to Flickr (JPG/PNG) and S3 (MP4). However I want to keep a backup using git-annex onto a external USB drive.
How do I quickly copy and drop?
I realise I can:
- git-annex add 2014-*
- git-annex copy --to 2tbusbdrive
- git-annex drop 2014-*
But that's several steps. Is there a quicker way?
How do drop only files I've actually uploaded?
In the past, I've just marked files as uploaded by
touch "$media.uploaded" once my python Flickr script returns a successful error code. But I have no idea how to tell git-annex that this means the file can now be dropped, providing a copy exists on my 2tbusbdrive.
Furthermore keeping a clean deck
Tbh I don't want the old upload files/directories cluttering up my uploadme directory. Can I just delete them or configure drop to remove the filename too?
