megals [-e] [-h] [--header] [-l] [-R] [-n] [<remotepaths>...]
For all files that are going to be listed, also display public download link with file key.
NOTE: Folders export doesn't work yet.
- Display file sizes in a human readable format.
- For long list format, display header describing all listed columns.
- List additional information about listed filesystem nodes. Node handle, owner, node type, file size, and the last modification date.
- List directories recursively. This is the default if no paths are specified.
- Show only names of nodes within the directory. This option has effect only if you specified a single path on a command line.
-u <email>, --username <email>
- Account username (email)
-p <password>, --password <password>
- Account password
- Load configuration from a file
- Disable loading .megarc
- Never ask interactively for a password
- Reload filesystem cache
Enable debugging of various aspects of the megatools operation. You may enable multiple debugging options separated by commas. (eg.
Available options are:
api: Dump Mega.co.nz API calls
fs: Dump Mega.co.nz filesystem (may require --reload to actually print something)
cache: Dump cache contents
- Show version information
One or more remote filesystem paths to list. If path points to a directory, contents of the directory and the directory itself is listed. When
is given, only the contents of the directory is listed.
If path points to a file, the file itself is listed.
If ommited, the entire remote filesystem is listed recursively.
List all files:
$ megals /Contacts /Inbox /Root /Root/README /Root/bigfile /Trash
List all files in the /Root, recursively and with details:
$ megals -l /Root 3RsS2QwJ 2 - 2013-01-22 12:31:06 /Root 2FFSiaKZ Xz2tWWB5Dmo 0 2686 2013-04-15 08:33:47 /Root/README udtDgR7I Xz2tWWB5Dmo 0 4405067776 2013-04-10 19:16:02 /Root/bigfile
List all files in the /Root, recursively and with details, show only file names:
$ megals -ln /Root 2FFSiaKZ Xz2tWWB5Dmo 0 2686 2013-04-15 08:33:47 README udtDgR7I Xz2tWWB5Dmo 0 4405067776 2013-04-10 19:16:02 bigfile
Export download links:
$ megals -e /Root/README https://mega.co.nz/#!OFFRlbgR!k5rWmLp3mxB0gsq07Ii67PLd9L0wq4KondFLDlfH3Uw /Root/README
List files in a more human readable format:
$ megals -hnl --header /Root/README =================================================================================== Handle Owner T Size Mod. Date Filename =================================================================================== 2FFSiaKZ Xz2tWWB5Dmo 0 2.6 KiB 2013-04-15 08:33:47 README
Mega.co.nz filesystem is represented as a tree of nodes of various types. Nodes are identified by a 8 character node handles (eg. 7Fdi3ZjC). Structure of the filesystem is not encrypted.
Megatools maps node tree structure to a traditional filesystem paths (eg. /Root/SomeFile.DAT).
NOTE: By the nature of Mega.co.nz storage, several files in the directory can have the same name. To allow access to such files, the names of conflicting files are extended by appending dot and their node handle like this:
/Root/conflictingfile /Root/conflictingfile.7Fdi3ZjC /Root/conflictingfile.mEU23aSD
You need to be aware of several special folders:
- Writable directory representing the root of the filesystem.
- Trash directory where Mega.co.nz web client moves deleted files. This directory is not used by megatools when removing files.
- Not sure.
- Directory containing subdirectories representing your contacts list. If you want to add contacts to the list, simply create subdirectory named after the contact you want to add.
- Directories representing individual contacts in your contacts list. These directories contain folders that others shared with you. All shared files are read-only, at the moment.
Part of the megatools(7) suite.
