It would be nice to have an option to create some kind of file, for example syncing.lck in “.stfolder” when folder is being sync. This file should be removed if there is no synchronization. This would generate some read/writes on the disk so should be only optional.
I’m synchronizing my projects folder from my laptop to my server. I would like to know if there is any synchronization going to, if needed, pospone daily backup of projects.
You can query the api for the folder status.
“Lock” files is a very poor mechanism that doesn’t work well with crashes.
