Make the QR code scannable

Syncthing’s default UI shows a QR code - which is great. However, it has no feature to scan a qr code from another device. So I can show it, but the other device can’t scane it.

There’s currently APIs that allow accessing the camera via JavaScript. Given that syncthing’s UI is in html+js, it makes a lot of sense to use it.

As-is, the official client cannot use the qr code, and the alternative is basically to type 52-56 characters on another device.

Any thoughts? Should I open an issue for this on github?

Looks like it ought to be possible. Someone will need to try to make it run. Sounds like an issue could be appropriate.

This is probably worth an issue on github
