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 --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.
- Your username.
- 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 timeout in seconds (default is 10 minutes).
Create ~/.megarc (on linux) or mega.ini file containing these 3 lines:
[Login] Username = your@email Password = yourpassword
Run megadf(1) to check that megatools are able to login to your account.
