I’m a noob and I needed help from my nerd computer expert friend to download syncthing. He had a hardtime too. It works fine for me now and it looks all great, but!
My suggestion: why don’t you make a download where you just can download what you need, without the choise of many options only rocket siencetist understand.
(one download/installer for windows, one for apple and one for the rocketscientist who need the zillion options.)
I think he’s talking about the syncthing website. It would make sense to have a “Download” button instead of “Download from Github”. That button would then link directly to the correct binary. And probably an additional link to Github downloads.
Edit: We could also link to Syncthing-GTK and/or Synctrayzor instead.
I just wrote a script using the Github API to pull down the latest version of syncthing-inotify and update my local binary.
Using Github API you can get the latest binaries from any release on a given repo… At the very least you can setup a download button that pulls the latest versions for each architecture & OS - and yes, you can use JS to sniff the user agent.
At any rate, I’ll be glad to work on the home page a bit and build out some different download options for users… I’ll work on that in the next couple of days and submit a pull request when finished.
