App required for Mac OS to simplify synchronisation of files across http, ftp and local network shares. In essence, similar to the software update app but for a specific file type and from multiple sources. Features; * Specify local and remote directories to synchronise with (one local, many remote). * Remote dirs can be http dir listing, ftp dir listing or network share. * Validate files to sync for version (files are text based with version encoded in them). * Validate files for similarity (a reasonably simple checksum will do). * Extract basic info from file contents (name, author, version) for display in reports. * If differences/duplicates found, offer up list of conflicts or versions with request to ignore, copy to local, ignore for ever etc. * Write a log file of actions performed, with a one level undo on file replaced actions (more levels would be good). * Option of autostarting with OS.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done. 2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request. 3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.
Mac OSX (all 10.x), OS9.x (all versions) and any others a bonus.
