Capivara Publisher's description
from Sascha Hunold
Capivara is a two pane file manager with support for SFTP and FTP servers.
Capivara is a two pane file manager with support for SFTP and FTP servers. Capivara is not an ordinary file manager because it adds synchronization features like comparing timestamps or SHA-1 hash values. The synchronization of Capivara has a preview mode to shows which files are going to be deleted or copied. The basic look and most key bindings are inspired by two file managers I really like to work with: mc and worker.

I am still looking for people who would create and maintain language packs! Send me an email if you want to participate!
The reason for making Capivara
When Capivara was launched (back in 2003) there were not too many file synchronization tools available. For Linux there is no easy to use tool like Foldermatch (well, there was none). rsync is a great tool but a little complex for performing a quick sync to some USB drive. I wanted to have such a nice tool as Foldermatch for free for Windows and for Linux.
Capivara is therefore entirely written in Java and hence, it easily runs on wide variety of platforms like Windows, Linux, MacOS, ...
