Changing the password is indeed a bit cryptic. You can change it from the GUI instead of editing the xml file. I suspect that it is rehashing the plain text password and restarting itself when you edit the file directly. Put a screenshot and note here on how to change it from GUI - https://docs.cloudron.io/apps/syncthing/#changing-password
@captainmoron currently we run the app with syncthing -gui-address=127.0.0.1:3000 -home=/app/data/config -no-browser -auditfile=- I actually cannot find where other logs would go besides stdout, which according to your link is also just putting them on stdout. But I don't actively use syncthing, so I may miss something. Maybe you can pin point to which logs you mean.
I’ve gotten Möbius set up in the meantime and it’s quite promising so far. My core use case works, which is syncing a few markdown files between my Mac and iPhone, so I can edit with Vim in the Mac and iaWriter on the phone, keeping them in sync as I do. This has so far been impossible for me to set up in any usable way (without resorting to Dropbox or iCloud), so syncthing and Möbius are really looking good.
Here are a couple issues and questions I’ve run into along the way:
I suspect severe itch-scratching based development in many cases: developers who develop things that works for them tend to use real computers, whereas the general population don’t even buy laptops any more.
