i am using syncthing on my mac in order to sync with a synology discstation and (certain folders) my smartphone. since i am syncing my entire home folder /home/me, i need to ignore certain folders that do not need to be synced.
i definitely do not want to sync the /Library and /Applications folder as well as most .* folders; however, I do want to sync my .ssh folder. Currently, that folders ignore pattern looks like this:
!.ssh ./ Applications/ Icon? Library/* Desktop/* Downloads/nsync .DS_Store
i meant to tell it that I do want to sync .ssh, but not any other .something folders. i do not want to sync the Applications folder nor its subfolders, same for Library and Desktop. The Downloads/nsync folder is not 90s music related but rather that download folder for files I either only intend to use on my macbook or to delete shortly after using (unpacking, moving, …) them anyway.
however, when i ls -la my /home/syncthing/me/macbook/ folder on my raspberry pi (which mounts the synology for syncing with it), it shows that all .something folders have been synced as well as Library, Downloads, Desktop, …
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance for your help =)
