Saturday, 14 November 2009 script handle files with spaces in names. updated with a bit of grief to allow sync files with spaces in file names. Could not do it "properly" and get quoting/slashifying correct. Hacked s/ /_SPACE_/g when getting file list then iterate lists and s/_SPACE_/ / when needed.

Used to sync mobile sounds.

And photos, here's one photo synced:

And here's one that got a bit washed out:

Here's the script:
Presumably cut&pasting it from here might not work ... depending ... oh well ...
See below below for script, embed from github:

#wami*.gpx and *.jpg files are cleared off device if synced successfully and mp4 or png

#Files with funny chars in name could cause a problem. maybe. () are okay
#Files to clear out are hardcoded.
#It's simple - just syncs files up if they don't exist on host.
#There are various other TODOs

#I've thrown together an ugly script to automate sync (a dumb enough sync) of files from my phone.
#And made an ugly blog post about the ugly script also:
#It would be nice to sync properly like rsync (i.e. check files size and date/times on host and device).
#It would be nice to use rsync itself! :)
#Possibly obexftp could be improved, commands like "get-if-changed, put-if-not-up-to-date", recursive ability.
#Hmm. Hmm.
#mount could mount some ugly thing + obexftp interface?   then rsync away
# Hmmm.
# 14/11/2009 Fix allow spaces in file names.
#     probably also allow spaces in dirs and device name
