Atuin can back up your history to a server, and use this to ensure multiple machines have the same shell history. This is all encrypted end-to-end, so the server operator can never see your data!
Anyone can host a server (try
atuin server start, more docs to follow), but I
host one at https://api.atuin.sh. This is the default server address, which can
be changed in the config. Again, I cannot see your data, and
do not want to.
Syncing will happen automatically, unless configured otherwise. The sync frequency is configurable in config
You can manually trigger a sync with
Register for a sync account with
atuin register -u <USERNAME> -e <EMAIL> -p <PASSWORD>
Usernames must be unique, and emails shall only be used for important notifications (security breaches, changes to service, etc).
Upon success, you are also logged in :) Syncing should happen automatically from here!
As all your data is encrypted, Atuin generates a key for you. It's stored in the
Atuin data directory (
~/.local/share/atuin on Linux).
You can also get this with
Never share this with anyone!
If you want to log in to a new machine, you will require your encryption key
atuin login -u <USERNAME> -p <PASSWORD> -k <KEY>
