Selective Sync without placeholder files

Recommended Posts

When I uses Selective Sync on my NAS I can configure Selective Sync via the Resilio GUI, there are nor placeholder files on its disc. On macOS this is not possible. Here I double-click placeholder files to trigger synching. For my usecase I would like to have the behaviour from the NAS on macOS. I have hundreds of project folders and at any moment in time I usually care only about a few of them. Having all the placeholder files for projects I do not work on is not needed and sometimes distratrcating. So my question: Is it possible to have on macOS the same behaviour like on my NAS?

@mr_burns

create sync.conf inside ~/Library/Application Support/Resilio Sync with the following content

{
    "use_gui": false,
    "webui":
    {
        "listen": "0.0.0.0:8888"
    },
    "enable_placeholders": false
}

but you will be able to use Sync only through web ui http://127.0.0.1:8888
