keeping 2 calibre libraries in sync
I'd like to keep a local and remote Calibre library in sync. My current approach is to watch the local library for changes, push changed files up to the remote server (including metadata.db), and then restart the server.
- calibre-server doesn't have an explicit "restart" command, so I'm resorting to "sudo killall calibre-server && sudo calibre-server ..."
- when books are deleted in the local repository, I have to remove them manually from the remote library with 'calibredb remove...'.
- is there a builtin restart command?
- how can I get true replication between libraries such that changes made to the local library through the GUI propagate to the remote library for serving via the Calibre server?

There you can find a way to automatically shut down and restart the calibre server, when there is a need to update the books/database on the remote server.
There are plenty of sync tools to efficiently keep two directories synced. Just google "sync utility". I like rsync.
