Echelon is a Gnome panel applet which monitors a user supplied list of game servers. The primary purpose is to watch the servers for the presence of specified player names.

Echelon is written in Python and uses GTK and thereby requires a recent version of gnome-python-extras.

We aim to keep Echelon fairly simple and uncluttered. Feature requests are welcome on the mailing list but please bear in mind that if you're looking for an all-in-one server browser XQF may be your best bet.

Echelon has nothing to do with ... that other Echelon.

Main features:

  • View server stats including your current ping, number of players currently playing, maximum number of players, which friends (if any) are online, and server name.
  • Add favorite servers simply by picking a game type from a list and entering the host.
  • Monitor servers and get notified when a friend joins.
  • Applet icon changes color according to state. Blue means that there are players present on your monitored servers, and green means that a friend has join a monitored server.
  • Applet tooltip displays server type, name, and the current number of players online so that there may be no need to open the server window.
  • Server list tooltip displays a list of each player currently online along with their current ping and score.
  • Favorite servers and friends are saved as simple XML data to be persistant between sessions.
  • Ability to match friends name either exactly or by only supplying a substring of their name.
