This project provides a file synchronization tool, comparable to Unison File Synchronizer, with a fast and simple to use application interface. It is completely written in Ruby and uses the Fox toolkit for the graphical interface.
To do the synchronization between two folders, the Ruby File Synchronizer uses either MD5 checksums or simple filename checks (which is of course much more performant). The checksums are stored in a profile which is stored separate for all synchronization folders.
