Are extended attributes handled, and if so, to what extent? For example, are resource forks synced between HFS+ file systems? Things could get tricky editing files across platforms.

If this isn't supported yet, I would like to add it to the wishlist, as a must have before use.

Thanks Roman -- I wasn't sure if this was due to host server configuration problems or to BTSync itself.

 

Can you provide an ETA for the support of xattr by encrypted nodes?

@ RomanZ

Is 1.4.99 supposed to have addressed this? So far I'm not seeing a difference, but don't want to reset all my syncs until it's worth it... Thanks!

I have here now 2.0.0-2.

Something moved in this story?

For me is btsync unusable without syncing Extended Attributes because I tag my files and Folders :(((

From article:

 

  • Linux: xattr names MUST start with namespace (.used, .system, etc.) and cannot store more data than 1 filesystem block (usually 4Kb)

 

I Use KDE, and KDE (tags) attributes begins normally with user. Here is an example:
 
:~/Downloads$ getfattr -d KG1.pdf  
# file: KG1.pdf
user.baloo.rating="10"
user.xdg.comment="LLALALALA"
user.xdg.origin.url="http://www.kindergeld.org/download/KG1.pdf"
user.xdg.referrer.url="http://www.kindergeld.org/formulare.html"
user.xdg.tags="VASILIJ"

 
Seems KDE tagging and btsync are not compatible...
Is it very difficult too add support for user attributes?
Or whats is a problem to support all attributes?

Try locating "StreamsList" file (it resides in hidden .sync subfolder in the folder you synchronize), edit it and add a line

user.*

Do it on both computers, restart Syncs, see if now requested xattrs are synced.
