Sorry I probably didn’t explain what I meant properly. I was proposing DTTG to sync its contents with the contents of a pre-existing external folder. For example, if I have a folder of PDFs somewhere in Files app, it would be great if DTTG can copy it into a database and keep that database in sync with the PDFs in the external folder, probably bar from any proprietary metadata. I’m not suggesting DTTG to put the chunked data back.
This is not a proper DEVONthink database sync. It’s exactly like the feature in Working Copy called “Set up synced directory”. It intends to bring git to apps that can’t access folders in Working Copy but exposes their own folders in Files app. Similarly DTTG can offer its indexing features to all files in the Files app by implementing this.
I’m suggesting this also to overcome some limitations of DTTG: 1 Other apps can’t access entire folders in DTTG so, for example I can’t put .md + embedded images in DTTG to use in iA Writer. 2 DTTG database can only be synced with Mac machines.
