Simple Settings Dialog (ssd) enables a script author to easily construct a simple dialog (for e.g. configuration purposes) which can be be presented to the user during script execution.
Simple Settings Dialog is build on TrollTech QT4 and implements the most commonly used widgets from QT.
Ssd is intended for sys admins for scripting purposes. For instance, suppose you are a sys admin on a multi user environment and have e.g. Firefox and Opera installed on your system. Now, you want to provide your users with the choice of browser the first time they click on the button "Browser". This can be handle with a bash script and ssd, providing the user with a graphical choice dialog.
The aim for ssd has been
- Creation of a dialog should be done in a very few lines
- The output from ssd (when the user has made his/her choice) should be simple and parseable by bash
The code (or markup) for ssd can either be stored in a separate file or embedded in the bash-script, allowing one-file-scripting.
