stall -- A simple file gathering repository

Stall is a command line utility for managing configuration data within a directory.

Running stall init in a directory will create a .stall file in that directory which tracks any files added, removed, or moved by stall add, stall rm, or stall mv.

Tracked files (also 'stalled files') can be easily copied to and from their original locations via the stall distribute and stall collect commands, respectively. These commands will ensure that copies will only occur if an older version of the file is being overwritten. Use stall status to display the status of all files tracked.

Stall can make it easy to group, edit, backup, and apply version control to specific files dispersed among many different directories.


There are currently two install options:

  1. Install cargo and run cargo install stall.

  2. Build stall from source. Clone this repository, install Rust, run Cargo build --release, and move the compiled binary into your $PATH somewhere.
