I like to keep an archive of my code on a monthly basis. I wrote a small bash script to create zip out of my multi module Java projects. It gets the job done and can be improved to include resources and test folders as well. As of now I am only interested in the Java code zip backup.
!/bin/bash if [ -d "combined" ]; then echo "Removing existing zip files in combined .." rm combined/*.zip else echo "Creating combined folder.." mkdir combined fi for d in */ ; do if [ -d "$d/src/main/java" ]; then var="$(echo $d | sed 's/.$//')" echo "Processing $var .." cd $d/src/main/java zip -r ../../../../combined/$var.zip com cd ../../../.. else echo "Ignoring .. $d" fi done
