Hi, I am Thomas, e-mail: thomeven@gmail.com, the developer of RsyncOSX and RsyncUI. The development of RsyncOSX commenced early in 2016 as a personal project to learn Swift. And the development of RsyncUI began late in 2020 to learn SwiftUI. I have a master’s degree in computing science, but I am not a professional developer. I did my master’s in the days when Linux was released in 1991 and the Internet became a public service. And a few years ahead of that, in 1989, the Web was invented at Cern.

There is one developer only of the apps, me, and I am doing what I can to keep the applications as stable and user-friendly as possible. I am not a UI designer, and some users might find the UI complicated and less user-friendly. The maintenance and development of RsyncUI is one of my hobbies. RsyncOSX, which is the old app, is bugfixed only. If you like using RsyncUI or RsyncOSX, please consider giving me a star on the GitHub repository. Every single star is motivation for me to continue developing and keeping the apps updated for the latest version of macOS.

In May 2022, I retired from work at the age of 62. I am a passionate photographer of nature and wildlife (birds) and love staying in the Norwegian mountains (in Norwegian). Grandkids, photography, continuing maintenance of my macOS applications, and cross-country skiing are keeping me busy.

How are these pages built?

Hugo, which is a static site generator, is the web framework serving these pages. The source for this website is hosted on GitHub. Netlify, which runs the web server, automatically picks up changes on the main branch and rebuilds the server. The Hugo theme used is another open-source project hosted on GitHub.

Every time I change or add pages, I commit the changes to GitHub, and Netlify automatically builds the new server in seconds.
