Panel indicator for Yandex-disk CLI daemon (linux/Qt)
It's just reface (Qt is used instead of GTK+) of yd-go. If you are interested in GTK+ version, visit: https://github.com/slytomcat/yd-go
Russian wiki: https://github.com/slytomcat/yd-go/wiki
I've made it as it is rather well-known task for me (I've made the similar indicator in YD-tools project in Python language: https://github.com/slytomcat/yandex-disk-indicator).
GUI (System tray icon) shows the current synchronization status by different icons. During synchronization the icon is animated.
Desktop notifications inform user when daemon started/stopped or synchronization started/stopped.
The system try icon has menu that allows:
- to see the current daemon status and cloud-disk properties (Used/Total/Free/Trash)
- to see (in submenu) and open (in default program) last synchronized files
- to start/stop daemon
- to see the originl output of daemon in user language
- to open local syncronized path
- to open cloud-disk in browser
- to open help/support, about and donatation pages
Application has its configuration file in ~/.config/yd-qgo/default.cfg file. File is in JSON format and contain following options:
- "Conf" - path to daemon config file (default "~/.config/yandex-disk/config.cfg"
- "Theme" - icons theme name (default "dark", may be set to "dark" or "light")
- "Notifications" - Display or not the desktop notifications (default true)
- "StartDaemon" - Flag that shows should be the daemon started on app start (default true)
- "StopDaemon" - Flag that shows should be the daemon stopped on app closure
Download source from master branch and unzip it to the go source folder ($GOHATH/src) (it can be removed after buiding and installation). Change current directoru to the progect folder cd $GOHATH/src/yd-qgo/
For building this prject the additional packages are requered:
Install qt-sdk (Qt 4.8)
sudo apt-get install qt-sdk
Get package github.com/visualfc/goqt
go get github.com/visualfc/goqt
Follow the package instructions (https://github.com/visualfc/goqt/blob/master/doc/install.md) to install the pacage
After goqt package installation build the indicator
cd yd-qgo/ ./build.bash
Run install.bash script with root previlegies for installation.
yd-qgo [-debug] [-config=<Path to indicator config>] -config string Path to the indicator configuration file (default "~/.config/yd.go/default.cfg") -debug Alow debugging messages to be sent to stderr
Note that yandex-disk CLI utility must be installed and connection to cloud disk mast be configured for usage the yd-qgo utility.
