syncthing is a cool app

it shows that having a cloud server isn't necessary to backup everything, and that it's possible to do peer to peer for everything really well


basically you choose a few folders, and some devices to sync them to, and when they're on the same network it syncs them without using a cloud server


I run my life on it now. Replaced both gdrive and Dropbox for me.
