    Wrapper of syncthing for Android.

    Syncthing is great open source software to keep folders in sync. Think of it like Dropbox but without the cloud. I have seen many guides out there that go over how to use Syncthing to transfer files from your PC to the SteamDeck but they all require having your Deck in Desktop Mode. While googling how to start Syncthing automatically I didn't find any solutions so I figured out how to do it and as a bonus it starts automatically even in Game Mode.
