BitTorrent Sync running in Docker

tl;dr Run BitTorrent Sync isolated within a Docker container.

Installation

To install this container, simply run:

docker pull vpetersson/btsync

Usage

This Docker container relies on the environment variable SYNCKEY. For your own safety, only use read-only keys (or encrypted keys).

Assuming you actually want to permanently store the data, the container also requires that you pass on a local storage path (outside of the container) where you store the data (/local/storagepath below). This may be either a regular path or an encrypted volume.

The name variable is optional, but recommended such that you can identify what share the instance is running.

docker run -d \
    -p 55555 \
    -e "SYNCKEY=YourSyncKey" \
    -e "MYHOSTNAME=$HOSTNAME" \
    --name "NameOfYourShare" \
    -v /local/storagepath:/sync/storage \
    vpetersson/btsync

Each container is designed to only run one share, so you will need to spin up one container per share.

Alternatively, you can use the script create_instance.sh to create your instances.

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/vpetersson/btsync/master/create_instance.sh
chmod +x create_instance.sh
./create_instance.sh sync-key share-name local-path
