Mutagen’s most basic transport provides support for synchronizing and forwarding to and from local filesystem locations and network endpoints, respectively.


Local filesystem endpoints can be specified to the mutagen sync create command using their local path in either an absolute or relative format. If a relative path is specified, then it will be resolved relative to the working directory in which the mutagen sync create command is issued before being used to create the session.


Local forwarding endpoints can be specified as raw network endpoints. For a description of the network endpoint format, please see the forwarding documentation. In the case of relative Unix domain socket paths, path resolution will be performed relative to the directory in which the mutagen forward create command is issued.
