Thank you for working on this project! I am hoping it will let me run my own self-hosted cloud instance!
I was able to install Funkwhale on a cloud server and get the solution running.
I store my music (all mp3s) on /srv/funkwhale/data/music. I have a Syncthing instance that syncs the content of the “music” folder on my desktop to /srv/funkwhale/data/music. Initially, I was not able to get the CLI import running (based on this page: https://docs.funkwhale.audio/importing-music.html). It turns out you need run those commands from the api folder.
I would suggest adding the following commands to that page (non-docker install):
source /srv/funkwhale/virtualenv/bin/activate cd /srv/funkwhale/api/
This would make it easier for non-pros to get Funkwhale running.
