Travis CI GoDoc Github All Releases

A tool to sync Gmail filters from a config file to your account.

NOTE: This makes it so the single configuration file is the only way to add filters to your account, meaning if you add a filter via the UI and do not also add it in your config file, the next time you run this tool on your outdated config, the filter you added only in the UI will be deleted.
