Easiest way to run Syncthing

Positive Comment by jeff393
about Syncthing Oct 2015

Syncthing is amazing. I started using it about 2 months ago, and it's been great. My company, Portal - https://portal.cloud lets anyone self host open-source cloud applications like Syncthing at their own domain, on their private cloud server.

log into our Demo to try Syncthing on Portal.

If using SyncThing on Windows get SyncTrayzor instead 2 Helpful

Positive Comment by Furioslyr
about Syncthing Jun 2015

SyncTrayzor will encapsulate SyncThing within a regular program window. Can be closed and/or minimized to tray and start-up minimized as well. You can still access the web interface if desired. The SyncThing executable keeps a (ugly) taskbar slot constantly open, SyncTrayzor fixes this. Get it here, https://github.com/canton7/SyncTrayzor
Also, I would like to add that it works just fine on Windows 10 x64 (TP-10130) without a hitch.

I sought out an alternative to Bitorrent Sync and SyncThing+SyncTrayzor takes care of my needs.
