So that’s what you’ve been doing since we last saw you two years ago!

Cool project. What’s your driving use case?

Ha! I’ve been using Duplicacy lately (but I do miss Restic’s FUSE support).

I do a lot of work with GIS datasets and related types of data. Usually these are stored as a single file, either in Sqlite or similar, taking up 1’s - 100’s of MB. Not huge, but a moderate number of small edits to a single file add up fast.
