Upstart script to background start SyncThing on Ubuntu


author "Martijn Lievaart <m (at)>"
description "SyncThing"
exec su -c '/usr/bin/syncthing --no-browser' martijn
# We could start earlier, but let's spread initial load a bit
start on (local-filesystems and net-device-up IFACE!=lo)

Console goes to /var/log/upstart/syncthing.log. Obviously you need to substitute your own username, and obviously, you need to configure syncthing.

Hope this helps somebody, Martijn “M4” Lievaart
