BitTorrent Sync (btsync) Packaging Project Packaging and GUI project for delivering and deploying BitTorrent Sync (aka btsync or syncapp) on Debian derived (Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Raspbian, etc.) Linux workstations and servers

BitTorrent Sync Packaging Project

BitTorrent® Sync from BitTorrent® Inc. is a simple tool that applies p2p protocol for direct live folder sync with maximum security, network speed and storage capacity. It has native versions for Mac, Windows and Linux, as well as native NAS integration.

BitTorrent® Inc. delivers for Linux users only a raw binary file without any deployment concept or setup system. It's up to the user to create a reliable startup and shutdown logic and to manage a configuration file. Also a dedicated GUI, as provided for Windows and Mac OSX is missing.

The scope of this project is to provide a Linux GUI with all features as in Windows and Mac OSX and easy to install packages both for servers and desktop systems. The packages are available for Debian or derived distributions like Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Raspbian, etc.
