Truck.app — The Rsync Client for Mac


Still using FTP? Truck hauls data 30x faster thanks to its modern rsync engine (included) which compresses, de-duplicates and encrypts – giving significantly higher performance and security, right from the first transfer. Setup takes 3 clicks (no command line), then just drag-and-drop to transfer. Unlock the performance of rsync with the simplicity of Truck.

How much faster is Truck?
18x faster – uploading a new installation of WordPress.
30x faster – downloading a used instance of WordPress.
12x faster – sending an app to another computer in the office.
Comparisons were made versus the fastest, market-leading FTP and SFTP apps and native SMB sharing.
No data was pre-existing at the destination, these were all first-time transfers – all gains are thanks to rsync’s compression and de-duplication.

Even application-defined defaults can be overridden for a near-command-line level of control. – Autocompletion and inline documentation provided for each option. – Specify when the option applies (e.g. when uploading/downloading/both). – Enable ‘scavenging’: a preference to boost transfers by systematically employing rsync’s –copy-dest option; essentially reusing data from existing files in recently-visited directories. Fuzzy matching means that even files that are non-identical can be used as a basis for boosting. – Filter rules to include/exclude items based on text matching (or advanced pattern matching). – Toggle visibility of hidden files. – Specify ‘initial paths’ – for connecting straight into the given directory. – Fine tune custom preferences for each direction (upload/download) for each server. – Save multiple Favourites and work with multiple servers in multiple windows. – Bonjour browsing to easily connect to servers found nearby. – Use your SSH RSA private key instead of a password to connect to AWS, Google Cloud, etc. – An ‘Open Terminal Here’ action to quickly jump into an SSH session in Terminal.app – pre-authenticated and ready in the right directory. – Detailed operation logging. – Filter any view of files and use the keyboard to navigate.
