*A Configurable Button Plasmoid (yet another on-off switch)*
This is a button that allows to run script when toggled (on and off scripts) and to monitor status by status script. The new thing is an option to configure icons.
The plasmoid can by configured in the settings menu:
- Plasmoid Label will be visible next to plasmoid (can be useful to distinguish couple of them). Leave empty to show only icon (feature by renn0xtek9)
- On Script will execute a script (can be a full path to a script or bash snippet) when toggling from off state to on. The icon will be changed to "On" icon.
- Off Script will execute a script (can be a full path to a script or bash snippet) when toggling from on state to off. The icon will be changed to "Off" icon.
- Status Script can be used to monitor application (or the Internet connection). The script should return 0 on success (to show "On" state), something else on error (to show "Off" state)
- Check status on startup: Run once "Status script" on system startup
- Run periodically: Run "Status Script" in defined interval
1. Configuration to monitor internet connection (or server status)
- Disable On and Off scripts
- Enable Status Script on startup and to run periodically
set interval to your needs
- Add status script ping -c 2 -q example.com
2. Configuration to start a service
- Enable On script
- Add On script eg: sudo systemctl start docker (assuimg this command can be run without password)
- disable Off and Status scripts
When button will be pressed the script will be launched, if a service was started successfully the icon will stay green, otherwise the icon will go back to red.
3. Configuration to start, stop and monitor service
- Enable everything
On script should exit with 0, otherwise icon be change to red (test it by adding On script sleep 5; exit 1)
Off script exit code is not taken into account
By default plasmoid shows red (Off) icon when started, this can be easly changed: set Status script exit 0 to run once on startup
*Maybe in a future*
tooltip with custom name
tooltip or dialog with output from scripts
for ideas. I also noticed https://github.com/Intika-Linux-Plasmoid/plasmoid-on-off-switch-commands when my plasmoid was almost done.
