Syncthing Lite

Build Status MPLv2 License

This project is an Android app, that works as a client for a Syncthing share (accessing Syncthing devices in the same way a client-server file sharing app accesses its proprietary server).

This is a client-oriented implementation, designed to work online by downloading and uploading files from an active device on the network (instead of synchronizing a local copy of the entire repository). Due to that, you will see a sync progress of 0% at other devices (and this is expected). This is quite different from the way the syncthing-android works, and it's useful for those devices that cannot or do not wish to download the entire repository (for example, mobile devices with limited storage available, wishing to access a syncthing share).

This project is based on syncthing-java (which is in this repository too), a java implementation of Syncthing protocols.

Due to the behaviour of this App and the behaviour of the Syncthing Server, you can't reconnect for some minutes if the App was killed (due to removing from the recent App list) or the connection was interrupted. This does not apply to local discovery connections.
