Here’s a command line interface for Syncthing, for terminal addicts and setting up headless servers. https://github.com/classicsc/syncthingmanager
View and add device and folder configuration with simple commands.
Easily configure advanced folder and device options on many Syncthing instances from one shell.
Written in Python using blakev’s python-syncthing bindings. Tested on Linux and Windows 10 with the latest Syncthing, should work on MacOS too.
Current status: Alpha, I’ve been using it but expect some bugs.
All feedback and bug reports are appreciated!
Sweet! Put it on the Community Contributions docs page
It is also downloading syncthing? I do not want multiple binaries of the same thing
Collecting syncthing (from syncthingmanager)
No, that’s more likely the Python API for Syncthing.
ok thanks, I canceled the install when I saw that it was downloading syncthing. I try to keep my system clean
As calmh said, it’s python-syncthing, which talks to the Syncthing API. The other dependencies that may install are requests (HTTP library) and six (Python compatibility library).
FYI: I needed to to install the python3-wheel package before “pip3 install syncthingmanager” it would work.
Just tried it, apparently the older versions of pip in Debian and Ubuntu repos try to build the wheel causing a bunch of errors if wheel isn’t installed. The install doesn’t seem to actually fail (even though pip doesn’t make it clear that it succeeded). I’ll add a step to upgrade pip in the readme and try building a wheel for the next version to avoid this entirely.
