At this time, to build elektrol-gif-maker run the following command from the current directory:
gcc -o elektrol-gif-maker elektrol-gif-maker.c -lcurl
The availableness of libcurl is required. For generating the GIF-Images you also need convert from ImageMagick installed. The path where it's located also has to be in your PATH. A configure script and a Makefile will be provided later.
./elektrol-gif-maker --server/-s <server> --user/-u <username> --password/-p <password> --delay/-d <delay> --outputdir/-o <outputdir> [--channels/-c <channels>] [--year/-y <year>] [--month/-m <month>] [--day <day>]
--server/-s <server> defines the server where the data is located.
--user/-u <username> defines the username that is used to log in via FTP.
--password/-p <password> defines the password that is used to log in via FTP.
--server2/-s2 <server> defines an additional server where images may be stored. This is optional.
--delay/-d <delay> defines the delay that is used between the images in the GIF-Animation.
--outputdir/-o <outputdir> defines where the data will be saved.
--channels/-c <channels> defines animations for which channels should be produced. Possible Channels are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and RGB. If it's not defined, all Channels will be animated.
--month/-m <month> and
--day <day> define the date whose images should be used. Year is a number like 2013, month is a number between 0 and 11 (0 is January, 11 is December) and day is the day of the month (1-31). If not all three are defined, the date of yesterday will be used.
