To create a custom backend using a GUI, press "CTRL+B" while SiriKali has focus to
get a GUI window that will allow you to create a custom backend confuguration file.
The file will be created in user's home folder in Linux and Macos in user's desktop
folder in Windows.
Manual changes to the configuration file may be necessary to further customise
the backend since the GUI window does not expose all available options.
On startup, SiriKail checks for custom backend in "$HOME/.config/SiriKali/backends"
and in "$INSTALL_PREFIX/share/SiriKali/backends".
Explanations for different options on the GUI.
1. Plugin Name.
This option sets the file name of the generated config file.
2. Backend Names.
This option sets the name of a backend and ideally, it should have the same
value as plug in name. Its possible for a backend to have more than one name
and gocryptfs is an example since it has "gocryptfs" and "gocryptfs.reverse" names.
3. Executable Name.
This option takes a name of a program to call to run the file system.
4. Config File Names.
This option takes a name of a config file the backend uses to store information
about the file system like password and other informations.
5. Fuse Names.
This option takes a file system name as reported in "/proc/self/mountinfo".
Ideally, the name should be "fuse.XYZ" where "XYZ" is the plugin name.
6. Config File Argument.
This option controls how to format configuration file argument passed to the backend
if the backend supports custom configuration file path.
7. Create Control Structure.
This option controls how to format arguments passed to the backend when creating
a file system.
8. Mount Control Structure.
This option controls how to format arguments passed to the backend when mounting
a file system.
9. Wrong Password Text.
Most backends requires a password before they can mount a file system and reports a
problem when wrong password was entered and this option informs Sirikali of what
text to look for when reporting a wrong password.
10. Wrong Password Error Code.
Most backends requires a password before they can mount a file system and
reports a problem using error code when wrong password was entered and
this option informs SiriKali of what error code to use to know a wrong
password was entered.
11. Successfully Mounted Text.
This option informs SiriKali of what string to look for to know a file system was
successfully started in Windows or it other platforms if it runs in the foreground..
12. Require A Password.
Some backends requires a password and some don't and set this option for backends that do.
13. Support Mount Point Path.
All backends use drive letters on windows and some optionally support folder paths.
Set this option if the backend also supports folder paths.
14. AutoMounts on Volume Creation.
Some backend automatically mounts a file system after they are created and some do not.
Set this option appropriately based on how the backend creates its file systems.
