puppet-filebucket - Store and retrieve files in a filebucket
A stand-alone Puppet filebucket client.

Puppet filebucket can operate in three modes, with only one mode per call:
backup: Send one or more files to the specified file bucket. Each sent file is printed with its resulting md5 sum.
get: Return the text associated with an md5 sum. The text is printed to stdout, and only one file can be retrieved at a time.
restore: Given a file path and an md5 sum, store the content associated with the sum into the specified file path. You can specify an entirely new path to this argument; you are not restricted to restoring the content to its original location.
diff: Print a diff in unified format between two checksums in the filebucket or between a checksum and its matching file.
list: List all files in the current local filebucket. Listing remote filebuckets is not allowed.
This is a stand-alone filebucket client for sending files to a local or central filebucket.
Note that 'filebucket' defaults to using a network-based filebucket available on the server named 'puppet'. To use this, you'll have to be running as a user with valid Puppet certificates. Alternatively, you can use your local file bucket by specifying '--local', or by specifying '--bucket' with a local path.
Note that any setting that's valid in the configuration file is also a valid long argument. For example, 'ssldir' is a valid setting, so you can specify '--ssldir directory' as an argument.
See the configuration file documentation at https://puppet.com/docs/puppet/latest/configuration.html for the full list of acceptable parameters. A commented list of all configuration options can also be generated by running puppet with '--genconfig'.
Specify a local filebucket path. This overrides the default path set in '$clientbucketdir'.
Enable full debugging.
(list only) Select bucket files from 'fromdate'.
Print this help message.
Use the local filebucket. This uses the default configuration information and the bucket located at the '$clientbucketdir' setting by default. If '--bucket' is set, puppet uses that path instead.
Use a remote filebucket. This uses the default configuration information and the bucket located at the '$bucketdir' setting by default.
The server to send the file to, instead of locally.
(list only) Select bucket files until 'todate'.
Print extra information.
Print version information.
