syncthing-inotify can be installed along with Syncthing-sf (GUI). It will be started automatically with syncthing.

Syncthing (core) uses a rescan interval to detect changes in folders. This application (syncthing-inotify) uses OS primitives to detect changes as soon as they happen. Therefore, if you save a file, syncthing-inotify will know about it and pass this information to Syncthing such that near real-time synchronisation can be achieved.

The package contains the binary from github.

I am getting the following inotify error. The permanent fix to the described for the inotify systemctl.conf doesnt work for me. Please check if you are getting the same error amd if there is a fix for it.

 Notice  2017-08-10 07:08:06: [Inotify] Failed to install inotify handler for SyncSD. Please increase inotify limits, see for more information.
