I have no experience with Syncthing at all, so I need your insight if Syncthing can do what I need.
I am creating a system that requires two computers talking to each other:
- Computer #1 is a profile creator
- Computer #2 is a profile player
Computer #1 creates a text file with variables and their values. Computer #2 reads the text file and changes its application’s behavior based on the variables in the text file.
I am considering to use Syncthing for that purpose. Computer #1 will create a file in its “Sync1” folder which will be copied to “Sync2” folder on the Computer #2.
The software on the Computer #2 will read the text file with the variables and its values, and will adjust its behavior accordingly.
Ideally, Syncthing will need to launch automatically with the computer start, and get sync’ed in the background (with no GUI or ClI intervention).
Ideally, it should be a cross-platform solution (Mac,Win,Linux). Raspberry Pi functionally is highly desirable.
Is this possible?
I appreciate any guidance.
