Wrapper for getmail, providing daemon mode and encrypted passwords.
Do not use this software yet: it was one of the first projects I wrote in Python, it is buggy, it is poorly designed. I do use it, but I know its bugs and limitations.
I have a full rewrite in mind, but this is not my priority, so the release date (if any) should be quite far in the future. This rewrite can be tracked in branch next.
I - Description
Program Ch’val (abbreviated chval) is a wrapper for getmail. It provides two features:
- password are no longer stored in plain text, but are stored encrypted, using another password as a key;
- chval can be run as a daemon and call getmail every X minutes.
The name comes from Ferdinand Cheval, known as “le facteur Cheval” (Postman Cheval), a famous French postman and naive architect.
