Pipelines Rsync only latest commits and changed files

Is there an easy way to just rsync files that were changed since the last commit?
Because now there is Pipelines Deployments and I do not like the fact that I am rsyncing my whole website while I only need a few files that were changed.

Does anyone know a way to do this?

Rsync is already incremental - it will only push (or pull) the difference between source and destination.

Yes, true, but since the environment that I am syncing to, has been updated last week (for example). And my Docker image has just been created. The files on the Docker images, are ALWAYS newer than the files on the environment that I want to sync to.

So I can not choose to just sync changed files, since every single file in my docker images, always has a newer date than the files on the server, since those were already there before I started the Docker images.

So how am I going to fix that?

If it is just the date that is an issue, you can add the -c flag to synchronize based on checksum.


 -c, --checksum              skip based on checksum, not mod-time & size
