In this article I will show you how to install Syncthing 0.9.15 on Raspberry Pi: Raspbian, Arch Linux, Pidora.

Because Raspberry Pi uses ARMv6 architecture, we have to download the proper tar.gz archive, extract it and run the syncthing file:

$ sudo mkdir -p /opt/syncthing
$ cd /opt/syncthing
$ sudo wget
$ tar -xzvf syncthing-linux-armv6-v0.9.15.tar.gz
$ rm syncthing-linux-armv6-v0.9.15.tar.gz
$ cd syncthing-linux-armv6-v0.9.15
$ ./syncthing

Optional, to remove syncthing, do:

$ sudo rm -rf /opt/syncthing
