Rsync wrapper with sanity checking for some of the most common use cases.
#!/bin/bash
# Performs an rsync with predefined flags, configurable default arguments, only
# the most important options (dry-run and excludes), and sanity checking.
#
# Usage:
# ./backup_sync.sh [-n] [-e EXCLUDE] [-f FLAGS] [-d] [SRC] [DEST]
#
# (If SRC or DEST are not given, the defaults will be used.)
#
# Options:
# -n dry run
# -e exclude pattern (multiple -e options possible)
# -f additional rsync options
# -d debug :)
#
# Exit codes:
# 0-100: rsync exit codes
# 101: User failed to confirm rsync
# 102: SRC or DEST does not exist or is not a directory
# config
FLAGS="-xavh --delete --exclude-from=$HOME/Dropbox/backup_exclude.txt"
DEFAULT_SRC="/Volumes/one/"
DEFAULT_DEST="/Volumes/two/"
