Description

Caja-Actions

Caja-actions is an extension for Caja file manager which allows the user to add arbitrary program to be launched through the Caja file manager popup menu of selected files.

Caja-Actions components.

Caja-Actions has three sort of components:

  • A user interface, caja-actions-config-tool (CACT), which let you manage your actions. With CACT, you are able to create, modify and delete actions, to define menus and submenus, to order and reorder items. Import/export functions are also managed via CACT.

  • Caja extensions as dynamically loadable plugins. These extensions are automatically loaded by Caja when it starts. For now, two extensions are provided: . libcaja-actions-menu.so is a plugin which takes care of displaying actions in Caja context menus; . libcaja-actions-tracker.so is a plugin which tracks the current Caja selection, and sends it in response to a DBus request.

  • Command-line utilities: a) installed in PREFIX/bin: . caja-actions-new lets you create new actions from the command-line; . caja-actions-run lets you execute a predefined action, taking into account the current Caja selection via a DBus call to the libcaja-actions-tracker plugin; b) installed in PKGLIBEXECDIR: . na-print-schemas prints the full MateConf schemas on stdout; . na-delete-xmltree deletes a tree from a XML file;

Caja-Actions plugins.

I/O Providers.

Caja-Actions itself uses plugins to load menus and actions from
the storage space. These plugins are installed in PKGLIBDIR, usually
something as /usr/lib/caja-actions/.

Starting with 1.5.0, the preferred default I/O provider is 'na-desktop',
which means that newly created actions and menus will be stored on
disk as .desktop files, in accordance with DES-EMA specification [1].

Importers/Exporters.

Caja-Actions also relies on plugins to import actions and menus,
and to export them, in several formats.
For now, Caja-Actions is able to import/export its items as:
. XML;
. .desktop files.

Caja-Actions documentation.

Documentation is provided in several formats:

  • developer documentation is provided as xml and html files, as generated by gtk-doc;
  • CACT user's manuals and general documentation is provided as xml, pdf and html files, as generated by mate-doc-utils, docbook-utils or dblatex tools.
