megarc - Configuration file for megatools
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
$ megatools df
$ megatools df --username firstname.lastname@example.org --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.
- Cache timeout in seconds (default is 10 minutes).
- Set maximum allowed download speed in KiB/s. 0 means no limit. Overrides SpeedLimit setting.
- Set maximum allowed upload speed in KiB/s. 0 means no limit. Overrides SpeedLimit setting. When using ParallelTransfers > 1, upload speed limit is applied to each transfer individually.
- Set maximum allowed upload and download speed in KiB/s. 0 means no limit.
- Set maximum allowed number of parallel connections when upload or downloading a file. The file is split into chunks of a size between 128 kiB and 1 MiB, and these chunks are uploaded in parallel. The number must be between 1 and 16. Default is 5.
- Use proxy server to connect to mega.nz. More information can be found in libcurl documentation at ⟨https://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/c/CURLOPT_PROXY.html⟩. Some acceptable values are:
- Create Previews (see --enable-previews option).
- Enable color output in the progress reporting. Colors are disabled by default to support all kinds of terminal configurations. Colors are not configurable, yet.
Create ~/.megarc (on linux) or mega.ini file containing these 3 lines:
