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.

i manually changed the sysctl.conf to increase notification size still getting error to notify for each folder i share the first time i start the browser and open syncthing. On github the developer said it wasnt an issue with syncthing but with the implementation of synchnotify and SFOS adaptation maybe.

Solution posted: echo "fs.inotify.max_user_wat ches=204800" | tee -a /etc/sysctl.conf fs.inotify.max_user_watches=204800

did not help.

Hm, I'm sorry but I don't have this error so I can't invetigate it.

My guess is, it's about the kernel you are using on your phone. Which version is it? (output of "uname -a").
