Hi Fedora people!
Let me introduce myself, I am Marcell Legeza, freelancer dev from Hungary. I am mostly working in the biotech industry and the stack i am mostly familiar with is .NET on linux. I am a linux user for 5 years by now, occasionally i make a switch back to windows but i always end up being in the linux world again in less than a week
I am a fedora user for more than two years now, currently i am writing from a fedora container, hosted by suse micro os. (couldn’t manage silverblue to work on my pc unfortunately)
I would like to propose a specific article about an OSS project that i made:
snapper-replicator. Fedora gave the idea of creating this application since it made a switch to btrfs as the default filesystem. I have a home server and a small business server, both of them run fedora and i wanted to break the habit of creating tar.gz backups and shipping them to a backup server using rsync.
There is a longer introduction here but basically
snapper-replicator allows you to replicate (even incrementally) your btrfs snapshots created by
snapper to a remote computer which also has btrfs and snapper set up. Supports both push and pull mechanism.
This way, in production, i create a daily backup using snapper, keep 10 records of history there and replicate the snaphots to my backup server where i keep everything.
I think this is a battle tested solution on small scale (home users, small business users) so probably would be interesting for other people.
Any feedback is appreciated both for the project and the article idea. I am also ok to shape the project further based on feedback before releasing any articles about it. (i am a very rookie OSS contributor so please, bear with me )
