      No iOS support on sight yet. As for know someone is privately developing an application, he is sending private msg for beta testing

      As for btsync 2.0, maybe we should just reduce it to a start/stop init and let people handle the plugin in their own webUI

      Well, there are severall bigger changes
      However, in terms of an official, easy installer for Windows or Mac OS X there are no news for the not so tech savvy end user.

      So this iOS-syncthing story was out of my sight -Sorry.
      Towards a btsync 2.x-plugin, yes that seems to me a better solution than no solution for btsync 2.x in OMV for the moment.

      I've just put like to your post, but i don't think is appropiate, more like irony

      :thumbsup:

      The sad part is that we now have Btsync, which is limited and costs money just to store data on YOUR own disks, and we have Syncthing which (in my opinion) isn't ready.

      Syncthing seems promising but it's not worth the hassle. It's not packaged for Debian and that's not something I'm interested in doing. And it hasn't given me any good impressions the times I've tried it. I wanted to try using it on my phone and on my server as I do with Btsync, but it just feels buggy and unpolished. I want to like it, but I can't.

      Because of the changes in 2.0, I would think a new plugin would be better. This way users can choose. Version 2.0 gives user more control over shared folders, but as HK-47 noted, free users only get 10 folders.

      Maybe it would be, maybe it wouldn't. I'm not planning on adding more work for myself by having two versions for the same thing. To me Btsync died with 2.0 and I see no point for me to create a plugin for it.


      I'm running Syncthing on my OMV box using a homebaked init script, works like charm. No need for deb packages unless your lazy (Syncthing auto-updates itself by default without interaction)

      I've set it up to sync my devices and its been a brezze, after the initial setup I haven't touched it and it has been working since (now a couple of months ago)

      I use it backup me and my gf's android phones, our laptops and sync my laptop/desktop for various settings etc



      How would you feel about writing a small how-to here? ;)


      There's a lot of guide floating around. Google is your friend
    • Would you mind linking a guide to installing syncthing which would be easiest to use on OMV?

      How do you update after a major version change?

      edit: even some general tips for installing any package on OMV would be usefull; i.e.
      • search for "install" + "the name of the software" + "wheezy" (Debian?)
      • in addition to the normal installation steps, create a new user and give write permission to folder X & Y
      • make the software auto-running by ..
      google is our friend, but it would helpful to know what to search for and what is usually different for OMV compared to popular distros..

    • Since syncthing has a debian repo, a plugin is much easier to create. omv-extras 1.24 adds the syncthing key and repo. I am working on the plugin. I have a very basic plugin working :)

    • Syncthing plugin is now in the btsync repo. Just remember that it is a testing version. I have tested it on multiple VMs but I don't use syncthing. Suggest other features if you think of them.

    • your plugin seems to be working properlly for one syncthing user.

      regular usage of syncthing is to make run a syncthing instance by each user, at different ports.

      so that each user of the nas can sync the files on his equipment with the directories he is allowed to access on the nas

      for this a config file for each user has to be modified to define the port of the gui and access conditions
      and the cronjobs have to be created so that the syncthing executable is started on boot for each user

      I know but that increased the complexity of the plugin greatly. I just wanted something working to start. Just to warn, taking from github can be dangerous. Not every commit works.

      No need for a cronjob. The init script is setup to start an instance for each user. Once we have the features everyone expects, I will work on multiple users.

    • i expressed myself in a wrong way :

      first : i am so happy that you are working on this plugin to make a great switch from btsync
      and it is very good way to start right away with a simple workable plugin that will evolve with time

      i did not used the community debian package of syncthing.
      i did neither build syncthing from github source files
      i did worked with the official syncthing linux builds taken which are published on github as ready to use executables : github.com/syncthing/syncthing/releases

      because in fact syncthing does not seem to need dependecies to be workable

      2
      concerning additionnel features
      i am in the mood for multi user :)

      if the init script directly creates an instance for each user this is pretty cool already :)

      I meant I wouldn't build the plugin from github.

      I knew that people would want multi-user. That is why I left the code in the init script. Like I said, I want to make sure the single instance is right before moving to multi-user.
