README.md

ppsh

A simple shell screenshot tool that uploads to an ssh server, named after the PPSh, a Soviet submachine gun, because it shoots and ends with sh.

Replacement for my old python script because finding a maintained SFTP library for Python is more effort than it’s worth.

Usage

ppsh

to capture a screenshot and upload it or

ppsh file.png

to upload file.png to the remote server.

Configuration

The first few lines of the script are the config variables. Use them to set the remote host, destination folder, etc.

Dependencies

This script will work on Xorg and Wayland by checking the WAYLAND_DISPLAY environment variable.

When used on Xorg, it requires maim for the image capture and xsel for clipboard management.
When used on Wayland, it requires grim/slurp for the image capture and wl-copy for clipboard management.
