The Syncthing Foundation stands against racism! Read about what we're doing.



These are some popular and user friendly OS integrations, providing things like system tray icons, file browser integration, etc. These are good starting points if you are a new user unfamiliar with Syncthing, or not prone to loving the command line.

There's a wealth of further integrations of all kinds listed on the community contributions page. Each integration has their own issue tracker for integration-specific issues, but discussion and assistance for all of them is welcome on the forum.


The Android app is available on Google Play and F-Droid.

Debian / Ubuntu Packages

You can choose between the “stable” (latest release) or “candidate” (earlier release candidate) tracks. The stable channel is updated usually every first Tuesday of the month.

# Add the "stable" channel to your APT sources:
echo "deb syncthing stable" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/syncthing.list

The candidate channel is updated with release candidate builds, usually every second Tuesday of the month. These predate the corresponding stable builds by about three weeks.

# Add the "candidate" channel to your APT sources:
echo "deb syncthing candidate" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/syncthing.list

Then proceed with the following steps to finish setting up the chosen track and install Syncthing.

# Add the release PGP keys:
curl -s | sudo apt-key add -

# Increase preference of Syncthing's packages ("pinning")
printf "Package: *\nPin: origin\nPin-Priority: 990\n" | sudo tee /etc/apt/preferences.d/syncthing

# Update and install syncthing:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install syncthing

Depending on your distribution, you may see an error similar to the following when running apt-get:

E: The method driver /usr/lib/apt/methods/https could not be found.
N: Is the package apt-transport-https installed?
E: Failed to fetch

If so, please install the apt-transport-https package and try again:

sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https

If you insist, you can also use the above URLs with http instead of https.
