I installed syncthing-macOS (Syncthing-1.22.2-1.dmg). I now have a syncthing app icon - but when I click to open it - nothing seems to open.
So,I installed the base syncthing, followed the Meeting Started Guide and went to the web GUI at http://localhost:8384/
Here I can see the set up screen.
Just wondering what the Syncthing App is supposed to do: is it supposed to open an app interface as an alternative to the web interface?
If so, what do I need to do to get it to open correctly?
Is it best just to use the GUI web interface at http://localhost:8384/ (and delete the app)?
Just trying to understand best/easiest way to work with syncthing.
One of syncthing-macos’ features is launching a user’s preferred web browser and pointing it at Syncthing’s web UI URL when its tray icon is clicked.
If you also installed Syncthing from the official package, you likely have two Syncthing runtimes (syncthing-macos bundles and auto-updates its own copy) which can cause conflicts when they both try to use network port 8384 and 22000, so it’s best to choose one or the other.
It’s really a personal choice. Some people prefer to have a system tray/dock app so wrappers such as syncthing-macos fill that need.
None of the existing wrappers support all of Syncthing’s configuration options so it’s something to keep in mind.
