Currently, Deja Dup only includes and excludes folders. Here are some things that I might one day want to be able to include/exclude:
- Specific files
- Files/Folders matching certain criteria like:
- Bigger than X MB
- Mime type
- List of packages installed in system
- Online data like:
- Flickr photos
- GMail emails
- Application Data
- Evolution mail etc
- XChat logs
I am also willing to entertain the idea that some of the above options are inherently confusing or just bad ideas to present to the user.
How to design a nice interface for all that?
- Something like Evolution's or Thunderbird's filter interface, where you can add and remove lines of match criteria.
- A drop down combo box with an add button next to it that initiated some dialog or inline further selection
- A wizard
What should the behavior be if an online data source isn't available?
