Introducing Cloud Files Deploy Automated Deployment to Rackspace Cloud Files

Publishing blog posts has been a manual process up to this point. Cloud Files Deploy is a small program I made to help automate the process of publishing new posts to my blog. Details of the entire deployment process will come in a future blog post, but this program is a key part of that process. It copies the contents of the folder up to Rackspace Cloud Files.

This version performs a full copy each time it is run. It does not delete any files in the container, it merely copies all files from the local drive to the cloud. Future versions will be modified to only upload any files that have been changed since the last deployment.
