quoll is a generic indicator for the system tray that displays SVG and PNG icons. It currently support only Linux. It was inspired by AnyBar and basically it's a clone with small differences.
quoll depends on Ayatana Application Indicators
gtk3 so in order to compile it you have to install them first.
On Debian (and derivatives):
sudo apt install libayatana-appindicator3-dev libgtk-3-dev
Then simply do:
cargo install quoll
Distribution of resources is not supported yet using cargo, so to get the base icons (as the ones included in AnyBar, but in SVG format) just download them and put in the directory where quoll will search for them:
mkdir -p $(quoll home) && curl -sL https://github.com/eriol/quoll/releases/download/0.1.0/base_resources.tar.gz | tar xzf - -C $(quoll home)
quoll is controlled via UDP (default port is 1738). To start it use the
To send a message to change the icon use the
send subcommand, for example:
quoll send green

To list the icons currently available, and so the corresponding messages that we can send:
ls $(quoll home)
SVG icons will always precede PNG ones, so having both
quoll home directory, when we send
quoll send my_icon the
SVG one will be displayed.
The special message
quit makes quoll to terminate.
UDP port can be specified with the
-p flag and works for both
quoll -p 1234 serve
quoll -p 1234 send red
