At this point I’m taking a look at the CLI. While I prefer GUIs (I can be stupid and not figure out CLI formats and settings), the GUI that exists today is (in my opinion) just not workable for complicated backups to many sets of providers. I don’t mean this as an insult, please don’t take it this way. It’s just an observation. I back up three sets of different data to multiple providers, and the existing GUI is just not workable for something like that.
By the way, it’s awesome that one repository can have two locations to back up to. In general, I don’t “trust” one cloud provider, so I like to have redundancy. It’s pretty awesome that the CLI understands this natively and fully supports that without “hacks”.
Is the best way for me to know if newer versions of the GUI are available to just keep an eye for new releases here?
If so, may I humbly suggest a few features (if they don’t already exist) in your new GUI version:
The GUI allows a trial. Hopefully each new version will allow a new trial. That way, somebody like me could try a new version and decide if it’s useful for me without bugging you for a temporary key or something,
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be friendly to folks that are moving from CLI to GUI. In that, I mean that if I give you a path to back up, you should recognize the .duplicacy folder and see that I already have an active backup. Import settings from there and let me make changes if I wish.
I like long, complicated, encryption passwords (64 bytes from random characters). Please fix the problem where I can’t paste passwords for any field. The CLI allows for this just fine, and the GUI should as well. I shouldn’t have to “dumb down” my encryption passwords to use the GUI.
Because I can have lots of backups, allow me to easily display a list of multiple backup configurations. Sort the backup configurations so it’s easy to find what I’m looking for in a list. Then allow me to drill into details of any one backup from the list.
Thanks for your consideration to my suggestions.
