Installation

You can now install from crates.io. Just run cargo install eidolon and install rofi via your distro's package manager!

You'll need rofi and cargo installed. Run:

git clone https://github.com/nicohman/eidolon.git && cd eidolon

cargo install --path . --force

Alternatively, check here for a possibly out of date binary.

Unofficial packages

It appears someone is maintaining a package on the AUR. If anyone else wants to maintain a package somewhere, feel free to! If you tell me about it, I'll even add a link here.

Configuration

Right now, only three config options exist: menu_command, prefix_command and steam_dirs. The config file is saved in ~/.config/eidolon/config.json, of course in the JSON format.

menu_command : The command to be run to display the eidolon menu. Will be given an alphabetical list of names through STDIN, and a name is expected back through STDOUT.

steam_dirs : a |-seperated list of steam install directories, with $HOME replacing the home directory.

prefix_command : A command that will be run as a prefix to every game command. Good for optirun or steam runtime launching.

Default config file:

{
steam_dirs: ["$HOME/.local/share/steam/steamapps"],

menu_command: "rofi -theme sidebar -mesg 'eidolon game:' -p '> ' -dmenu",

prefix_command: ""
}
