SSH Search Provider
A gnome-shell extension which searches the ssh config and known_hosts file and provides the found ssh connections in your shell overview.
- it parses the ~/.ssh/config file and searches for the hostnames
- it parses the ~/.ssh/known_hosts file and reads all hostnames (to use this feature you have to set the ssh setting "HashKnownHosts" to "no")
- you are able to define a user for the founded hosts in the search term
Assume the ~/.ssh/config file looks like
Host desktop User user HostName 192.168.1.100 Host desktop1 User user HostName 192.168.1.101 host vserver User user Port 2222 HostName 22.214.171.124
and the ~/.ssh/known_hosts file looks like
[126.96.36.199]:2222 ssh-rsa AAAAB... github.com,188.8.131.52 ssh-rsa AAAAB... user.webfactional.com,184.108.40.206 ssh-rsa AAAAB... 192.168.1.100 ssh-rsa AAAAB...
Here are some example searches and the search results
search-term: user@ (all hostnames are in the search results)
Install the extension directly from the gnome-shell extension webpage: https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/73/ssh-search-provider/
- copy or link the folder "email@example.com" to ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions
- enable extension (e.g. via gnome-tweak-tool)
Selecting Your preferred Terminal Application
At the moment it isn't possible to configure the preferred terminal app directly. The reason is that gnome-shell in the current stable version (3.2) don't provide tools for extensions to create extension specific settings. With the future version of gnome-shell (3.4) this should be possible and then I will provide an updated version of this extension with some gsetting options.
At the moment you could only change the source code directly. So you have to change the file ~/.firstname.lastname@example.org/extension.js
Replace 'gnome-terminal' with the name of your preferred terminal app:
const SSHSEARCH_TERMINAL_APP = 'gnome-terminal';
const SSHSEARCH_TERMINAL_APP = 'terminator';
