megarc(5) Configuration file for megatools

SYNOPSIS

~/.megarc
./.megarc

DESCRIPTION

Megatools use INI configuration file to store commonly used login credentials. This makes it less bothersome to use the tools, as you can simply write

$ megadf

instead of

$ megadf --username [email protected] --password mypass

when using the tools.

Configuration file is read either from the current directory or user's home directory. Exceptions are when --ignore-config-file was passed to the tool, or when explicit path to the config file was given via --config <path>.

CONFIG FILE SECTIONS

All sections are optional. All names are case sensitive, thus you must write [Login], and not [login], and so on.

[Login] Section

Username

Your username.

Password

Your password. Be aware that back slashes have special meaning. If you have back slash in your password, you must escape it with another backslash. For example: my\nice\password would be written as my\\nice\\password in the config file.

[Cache] Section

Timeout

Cache timeout in seconds (default is 10 minutes).

EXAMPLE

Create ~/.megarc (on linux) or mega.ini file containing these 3 lines:

[Login]
Username = [email protected]
Password = yourpassword

Run megadf(1) to check that megatools are able to login to your account.
