This repository contains scripts to build and/or run scratch docker images for syncthing.
Run an image using the
run.sh script. To run the current version container with docker on amd64:
wget https://github.com/djtm/syncthing-docker-scratch/raw/master/run.sh && bash run.sh
For other architectures, adjust
arch= to your needs. By default, the script runs
the container as the user you run the script as. The default path for storing
configuration files is
$HOME.config/syncthing-docker. As default volume is
$HOME/Sync is mounted. You can mount additional directories with
dockeropts="-v /local/dir:/container/dir". The default settings are
tuned for minimum impact on the running system. You can add syncthing
parameters to the end of the script, e.g.
bash run.sh -help.
While the current version is always tagged with the
:latest flag, the current beta version
is tagged as
:beta. This should allow for easy beta testing with your scripts. Please note
binaries are rarely released for beta versions. New major versions are not tagged
a while. They are available under the major version tag first, e.g.
0.12 will only be available as
:0.12(.x). If you want to be sure you
can determin the upgrade to a major version please use the current major version tag in your
The amd64 container runs with rkt as well. Please see
rkt_run.sh for standard stage1
rkt_clr.sh for a highly experimental "clear container"/lkvm stage1.
Other architectures are not well supported by rkt at the moment. They need
the container built on the same architecture its run on for docker2aci to work
and possibly further adjustments to rkt.
- retrieves a binary from the syncthing website
- verifies the hash signature
- creates a scratch docker image
- uploads the image to docker
- removes all images from the local system
for Linux architectures.
bash build.sh 0.12.21 builds, uploads, and purges containers for all architectures.
Most people will want to reduce the amount of architectures to their need.
You can adjust the script to upload to your own repository. Containers are
tagged with the version of syncthing given as command line. The system uploads
the currently built version under the
:latest tag as well.
- You need to be in the docker group to be allowed to start docker containers.
- If relaying shows
0/1for you, the CA Certificates might not be mounted from the right place. Please adjust the path in
ssl=. For possible locations see: https://www.happyassassin.net/2015/01/12/a-note-about-ssltls-trusted-certificate-stores-and-platforms/
rkt_clr.shdoes not mount any volumes. All modifications to the container will be discarded.
- rkt only runs a container on the architecture it was built on.
If you care about security, please use the build script to create the containers locally. The scripts and image are already generally trying to take security into account. Feedback welcome.
