I have a raspberry pi used to sync all my #orgmode files (see post at: https://helpdeskheadesk.net/help-desk-head-desk/raspberry-pi-org-hub/) So I don't touch it much.
I let it run, download system updates (Debian Buster) once a month or so, restart, and go on with my life.
Today I'm realizing my org files haven't synced well for a couple of days... turns out, it runs Syncthing from *2017*!!!
#Debian has repos that are a bit out dated... but THIS outdated? I added Syncthing's PPA to all of my machines *besides* my Syncthing-dedicated hub... 🤦♂️ 😂
I'm totally ranting on and on at this point, but where else can I do it if not here...
#syncthing is an excellent solution combined with something cheap, stable and always-on solution like a Raspberry Pi.
You can attach huge storage if you want, have it encrypted, and have all kinds of advanced features you won't get on things like #dropbox or #google drive or what not. Better for the price, that's for sure.
Syncthing is really excellent. I have it syncing files from my main laptop to a Synology NAS and also a Digital Ocean droplet. Completely rock solid and trouble-free.
When replacing a laptop I just sync the new one and it brings all my files from the old one.
@fossil how do you like syncthing on the synology? I have one with syncthing as well (it's a third-party fork of syncthing I think?) but I prefer to use my RP.
I like the idea of a dedicated org-mode hub, and importantly, I have scripts that automate some of my org templates every week which will not work well on the synology.
I love it, though I use it very simply. I installed from the community installer that Synology provide in their web interface, and I sync all my important laptop folders.
I like that I can sync multiple folders without having to put them all in 1 specific folder. NextCloud can't do that.
I also keep a separate 2-way sync folder between laptop and phone - saves using Airdroid.
