I’ve build a small stand alone application that downloads/exports
your Grist documents for periodically backups.
It works with hosted and self hosted grist.
The reason i build it is, that we need to do “tamperproof periodically snapshots” of our documents,
to be archived for 10+/30+ years (gene modified organisms database), so this tool can download the documents in all three formats, to hopefully be still readable in these 30+ years.
Thank you for this! Very cool.
Looks great, need to try it out!
Thanks very much for sharing!
that’s super cool ,
what’s this part of the config file does , is it the name of tables in Grist we wanna download ?
In contrast to sqlite and xlsx, csv only downloads one specific table.
So in the
[csvtable] section you tell the tool which tables you want to download as csv.
I’ve created a new release:
- Added logging
- Do not create files in case of an error.
- create config.ini in case its missing
- In case of an error the application quits with an return code of “1”.
- Added linux builds
