Figuring out a new way to sync music to my phone :D
@martijnbraam You are probably right that it's not the most efficient solution but it sure as hell is the coolest one!
Amazing, that is a very interesting solution! Never thought of it, but it's all there already, why not use it for music :)
I ended up hosting a git-annex repo with my music on a raspberry pi. On my Pinephone I can now get and drop single artists, albums or tracks just as it suits my mood. Using reverse ssh tunnels, this works from everywhere too 🎶
I like the idea of sharing media with package managers (it would be cool to have discographies as meta-packages that depends on albums that depend on tracks packages)...
...but just out of curiosity, if it's just for personal sync, why is Syncthing not an option?
@alexl there's a metapackage that depends on all music, a metapackage per artist that depends on the whole discography and then there's the album packages that actually contain the tracks.
also for the why, why not :D
You know what? We really need a user-level package manager like npm or cargo but for sync of media with depenencies structure
