Syncthing is an open-source software that allows the users to easily synchronize files and directories between different computers in a secured and encrypted manner. The application has only a Web UI, so we need the browser to do our Syncthing tasks.
Until now, the application had an option tu update the binaries to the latest version, but recently, an official repository for Ubuntu, Debian and derivative systems has been created, so that the users can get the syncthing update automatically.
So, to get the latest syncthing versions (via the official repository) on your Ubuntu, Debian or derivative system, you have to install curl to your system, add repository and the key, update the local repository index and install the syncthing package:
$ sudo apt-get install curl
$ curl -s https://syncthing.net/release-key.txt | sudo apt-key add -
$ echo "deb http://apt.syncthing.net/ syncthing release" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/syncthing-release.list
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install syncthing
