I would like to automate the backup process that is available within StartOS.
The desired flow:
StartOS backup → network drive → replicate offsite
For now I can click the button to make a backup to a network drive. That network drive has a process that automatically replicates off-site. The missing piece is having StartOS automatically initiate the entire process on its own.
Is there a way to do this already? If not, where could I start in writing my own script to do this? I looked at the documentation and it’s focused on writing a service (app) for the OS. Maybe that’s what I need to do, make an automatic backup service? Does a service live in a sandbox or can it directly manipulate the system? Is there an API for talking to the existing backup feature?
Would appreciate any pointers in how to get started on a task like this and I’ll take it from there.
