syncthingmanager

A command line tool for the Syncthing API. Designed to make setting up remote servers easier. (and for users who prefer the cli)

Installation and configuration

Requirements

  • Python 3.4 or later
  • pip for Python 3
  • Syncthing 0.14.19 or later

First, make sure you have the latest version of pip:

pip3 install --upgrade pip

Install stman with:

pip3 install syncthingmanager

The configuration must be initialized with the Syncthing API key. Usually this can be done automatically: stman configure. If that doesn't work, get the API key from the GUI or config.xml (in Syncthing's config directory), then run stman configure apikey.

Configuration syntax

If your Syncthing GUI/API is on a non-standard port, or not on localhost, you will need to configure it manually. By default, stman will look for settings at ~/.config/syncthingmanager/syncthingmanager.conf. A sample syncthingmanager.conf follows:

[DEFAULT]
name = localhost

[localhost]
apikey = MafkDvpagX5J6oMzxm9HwDSXJPSQKPFS
hostname = localhost
port = 8384

[remote-device]
apikey = h9mifaKwDq3SSPPmgUuDjsrivFg3dtkK
hostname = some-host
port = 9001

In this example, my default device is the one at localhost:8384. If I wanted to send a command to the one at some-host:9001, it would look like stman --device remote-device ...

Usage

$ stman device list
$HOME/.config/syncthingmanager/syncthingmanager.conf doesn't appear to be a valid path. Exiting.
# Autoconfiguration
$ stman configure
# List configured devices
$ stman device list
syncthingmanager-test     This Device

Other commands are documented in stman -h, stman command -h, and so on.

Notes

  • On Windows, cmd.exe will print funny characters in place of colors. PowerShell works fine.
  • Some information shown in the GUI requires use of the Events API, which isn't part of python-syncthing. I plan on creating Python bindings for it and using the results, but haven't started yet.
  • I chose to have the device list output be online first instead of alphabetical.
