Directly upload screenshots to a SSH server.

Project Description

# Upscrot

Upscrot is a simple tool that will take a screenshot using the Linux “scrot” command and upload it directly to an SSH server.

After uploading, the URL is copied to the X clipboard and can be pasted with middle click.

## Installing

Install upscrot via pip:

sudo pip install -U upscrot

If you’re on Arch Linux you can also install [from AUR](https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/upscrot/):

yaourt -S upscrot

## Usage

First run:

  1. Run upscrot.py. A sample config file will be created.
  2. Edit the config file with your server information.

Regular run:

  1. Run upscrot.py.
  2. Draw a rectangle with your mouse around the desired area.
  3. Screenshot will be uploaded automatically. The URL will be copied to the X clipboard and printed to the console.

It is recommended that you set up key authentication for your SSH server, so you don’t have to type in your password each time.
