Automation options? (API not viable)


Recommended Posts

TL;DR, the API isn't an option, so what other automation options do I have?

I'm wanting to automate some things between my desktop/laptop/home server/backup server. The API seemed like the best way to do this. Based on posts by RomanZ in other topics, I contacted the Resilio licensing department to purchase an API key. They informed me that it's not currently possible to purchase a key (you can only get the 12-month trial key), and that the API will not be available to Sync/Sync Pro usersĀ (only Sync Business and Connect users) when it is finalized, so it's a waste of time for me to write automation around the API if I'm eventually not going to be allowed to use it.

Because of this, I'm looking for other automation options. I can't find any documentation, posts or articles about non-API options that would allow me to interface programmatically with Sync (e.g. a command-line interface). The best thing that I've come up with is writing a script to click/type things into the Sync GUI, which works, but is overly clunky just to issue basic commands to Sync. Does anyone have any other ideas?
