I write a small tool to compare two directories: compare-with-remote

One part of the tool is to recursively fetch directories.

The library should be able to fetch from these protocols:

  • http https
  • scp
  • local

I could not find a library at pypi.

Before I reinvent the wheel I ask here.

I would like to support these syntax:

# local
compare-with-remote my-dir

# scp
compare-with-remote remote-host:my-dir

# scp
compare-with-remote user@remote-host:my-dir

# http
compare-with-remote https://host/my-dir

Required Features:

  • open source (not GPL)
  • Usable from python without subprocess
