Install Syncthing on MacOS 10.13 install - Fail part 2 - Success!

Image
I managed to get Syncthing up and running on my mac mini 10.13.6 (High Sierra). I had some video issues, but I swear I'll have them worked out in the future. Getting technology to work with us is a journey that I'm on and I'm glad some of you are along for the ride.

Install Syncthing on MacOS 10.13 install - Fail part 1

Image
Attempted to install Syncthing on my mac mini 10.13.6 (High Sierra), but ran into some issues. I'm posting this videos as an informative exercise in what can go wrong when installing syncthing over another version of syncthing.

The MacOS bundle is available here: https://github.com/syncthing/syncthing-macos/releases/tag/v0.14.49-1

This is the version of Syncthing that I used, but it will most likely be out of date by the time you read this. The main Syncthing site can be found here: https://syncthing.net/
