wmGrabImage is a WindowMaker DockApp that maintains a small thumbnail copy of
your favorite image from the WWW. The image to monitor is specified via the
"-url <Image URL>" command-line option and it gets updated
approximately every 5 minutes. The update interval can be overridden via the
"-delay <Time>" command-line option (Time is in seconds).
Each of the three mouse buttons can be double clicked with the following effects;
Brings up the full-sized image in the image viewer specifed via the option -viewer.
Sends a URL (specified via the -http <URL> command-line option)
to a browser specified via the -browser <Program> command-line
Updates the image immediately.
Display list of command-line options.
Use an alternate X Display.
-u, -url <Image URL>
The URL of the WWW image to monitor.
The URL to send to the browser (specified via the -browser command-line
option) via a Middle double click.
The system call used to access the under -http specified URL. Use
%x where wmGrabImage should insert the URL from -http. The default is:
"sensible-browser '%x' || mozilla-xremote-client 'openURL(%x)' || mozilla '%x' &"
E.g. you can call galeon using the following call:
"galeon -n '%x' &"
The system call used to display the image. Use %x where the actual image filename should be inserted. The default is:
"display '%x' &"
Center the image vertically within the icon.
The time between updates. The default is about 5 minutes.
The geometry to pass to convert when scaling the image.
The original sized image and the thumbnail XPM image are both stored in
~/.wmGrabImage/ which gets created if it doesnt already exist.
wget and the ImageMagick convert utility.
Who knows? -- its still Beta though. (Let me know if you find any). Oldish
versions of the ImageMagick convert utility have a memory leak -- if you have
that problem, upgrade to the latest version.
