Are there any chances to compile Synapse on Fedora or does it make make no sense to try?

To answer my own question: Yes. It can be easily compiled and used on Fedora.

First you have to install some dependencies:
sudo yum install glib2-devel gtk3-devel libgee-devel json-glib-devel keybinder3-devel libnotify-devel zeitgeist-devel libappindicator-gtk3-devel rest-devel vala

Then you just follow the instructions and do:
sudo make install

Not having an alternative for Alfred (Mac) in Linux was a giant pain in the a** :)

hi Max,

I can also confirm that compilation works in the same way for Fedora 22, with the exception of replacing yum with dnf as well as installing intltool (for which ./configure gave an error of intltool being too old). Working well so far!

You could install Synapse from russianfedora repository

su -c 'dnf install --nogpgcheck'

dnf install synapse

[root@ip201-126 ~]# dnf info synapse

You all could just install it from official repo again:
