Simple and flexible full backup software written in Bash.

More info in manuals:


Add repository to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/:

sudo echo 'deb [arch=all] testing main' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ge.list

Add key:

curl -s | sudo gpg --no-default-keyring --keyring gnupg-ring:/etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/ge.gpg --import

Update package list and install baka:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install baka

Also you can download DEB package directly: link.

baka pulls the rsync and s3cmd packages as dependencies.

Remote storage

To perform a backup to a remote storage, you need to forward SSH keys between servers in the case of rsync, or configure the .s3cmd config, in the case of copying to an S3-compatible storage (documentation). Of course, nothing prevents you from doing only local backups and transferring them in any convenient way.
