Is there a way to use syncthing to make a realtime collaborative text editor? I basically want something like google docs but that is only available on my local home private network.
There’s nothing like that specific to Syncthing. You may want to search for applications that can do live collaboration using local files, including detecting file changes on the fly, so that you could pair them with Syncthing. Not sure if such software actually exists though.
Use the right tool for the right job.
