Hi, thanks for this amazing Syncthing. I have two questions…
If I put “Android/” in the .stignore file, will it ignore that folder? Or what is the correct way to ignore a folder?
What is “ignore permissions”? If I don’t select it, will it ignore files that are byte sized?
The foot note in ignores documentation says
Please note that directory patterns ending with a slash some/directory/ matches the content of the directory, but not the directory itself. If you want the pattern to match the directory and its content, make sure it does not have a / at the end of the pattern.
So to ignore Android, just type Android
Thank you sir. How do I ignore a specific folder and file?
There Useful .stignore Patterns
Just type Folder/File
And to ignore “all but…” there is a nice discussion here with examples : un-ignore subfolders & files of ignored folder
If “ignore permissions” keeps local files unchanged, would “send & recieve” override it? Or are they two different options?
They are two grids one above the other.
Ignore is usefull when using read only too.
I use it to screen .pdf only in read only mode, so I’m sure I won’t propagate other things than pdf.
Ignore set what is handled, and the send-receive/read-only sets how to behave with them.
Ingore permissions is not the same as ignore patters (@brunod). Ignore permissions is independent from folder type (send&receive), it just means that the file permission information is neither changed on your computer nor sent to other devices.
