I’m trying to use Syncthing to sync a subset of my music over to my Android device, but I’m not really sure how to get my Android device to automatically delete files that I don’t want to sync.
I want to sync music on a file-by-file basis: e.g., a few MP3s from one artist, but not all of that artist’s music (I have too much music to fit on my device).
I tried using an .stignore file in my PC’s music folder, using
! lines to identify the individual files I want to sync (generated by a script), then letting Syncthing process it on my PC and move the files to my device.
This mostly works, except that if I want to remove files from my device, ignoring the files on the PC side (i.e., removing the
! line) does not remove the device from my device since Syncthing now ignores the file.
Is it possible to achieve this use case with Syncthing? What would be the right approach?
