We built new plugins for making a backup to a provider of your choice. All of our plugins follow the same structure and need to be installed together with a synchronizer-base plugin.
This plugin contains the base class for all other synchronizers. This way we made sure that our other synchronizer plugins follow the same structure and inherit the same methods.
We forked @Falco’s backups-to-dropbox plugin and changed its structure in a way that fits our sync-base. Check out our plugin here if you want to do a backup to dropbox.
Please note that since people with the old version of the dropbox plugin from Falco now have issues, because in his repository the naming didn’t change so the plugin is not loaded in the right order. We will revert our pull request to Falco so that you can still use the old version of the plugin, where you don’t need to install the base class.
As promised, we also have a new plugin to sync your backups to box.
We (@Jen_Lijo and @kajatiger) are the team Berlin Diamonds from the Rails Girls Summer of Code. If you want to see more about our approach and the process how we built the plugins, read our posts on meta. We will continue making plugins with other providers. If you have any experience with a good provider for plugins, please give us suggestions what we should work on next.
