MEGARC(5) Megatools Manual MEGARC(5)

NAME

megarc - 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 my@email.com --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).

[Network] Section

DownloadSpeedLimit
Set maximum allowed download speed in KiB/s. 0 means no limit. Overrides SpeedLimit setting.
UploadSpeedLimit
Set maximum allowed upload speed in KiB/s. 0 means no limit. Overrides SpeedLimit setting.
SpeedLimit
Set maximum allowed upload and download speed in KiB/s. 0 means no limit.
Proxy
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:
 
•socks5://localhost:9050 : Local SOCKSv5 proxy server
 
•socks5h://localhost:9050 : Local SOCKSv5 proxy server with DNS handled by the proxy

EXAMPLE

Create ~/.megarc (on linux) or mega.ini file containing these 3 lines:
 
[Login]
Username = your@email
Password = yourpassword
[Network] ; 1MiB/s SpeedLimit = 1024 ; Use over TOR Proxy = socks5://127.0.0.1:9050
 
Run megadf(1) to check that megatools are able to login to your account.
