galileorc - configuration files for the galileo Fitbit synchronization utility


The galileorc file is used to provide default settings to the galileo(1) utility. Any set‐ tings that would normally be passed as command-line arguments to galileo can, instead, be present in this configuration file to prevent having to repeat them again and again. Settings provided in the configuration files can be overridden by run-time command-line switches. See galileo(1)


The following files will be read if present. Later one override previous settings and set‐ tings provided on the command-line override settings defined in configuration files. · /etc/galileo/config · $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/galileo/config (The XDG_CONFIG_HOME environment variable default to ~/.config if not defined) · ~/.galileorc · any file specified with the -c command-line switch


The settings file is defined in YAML format. Blank lines and comments (from the first hash character '#' to the end of the line) are ignored. The configuration file is parsed as a dictionary of settings, which means that each set‐ ting is defined using a keyword followed by a colon character. For single-value settings (the majority), the value follows the colon, for example: do-upload: true For settings of type list (such as the tracker ID inclusion and exclusion lists), the val‐ ues appear with an indentation on subsequent lines and prefixed with a dash, for example: include: - '123456789ABC' - '9876543210AB'


The following settings can be added to the configuration files - not all options have to be specified; any that are not mentioned will leave the defaults in effect. See galileo(1) for details about the default values. logging controls the amount of progress output. Can be verbose to display progress during synchronization, debug for more detailed information useful for diagnosing prob‐ lems, or quiet to display only a warning and error messages. syslog setting this to true will send all logging output to the syslog facility. Due to the rate-limiting of some syslog servers, this option might not work in combination with the debug log level. include the list of tracker IDs to synchronize. If this is specified then only trackers from this list will be synchronised. exclude the list of tracker IDs not to synchronize. force-sync setting this to true causes trackers to be synchronized even if they report that they already have been synchronized recently. daemon-period this defines, in milliseconds, the period at which a synchronisation attempt will be performed when galileo is run in daemon mode. keep-dumps setting this to true causes galileo to save the data retrieved from trackers to the directory specified in dump-dir. dump-dir the directory used for saving tracker data if the keep-dumps option is set. do-upload setting this to false will prevent galileo from sending tracker data to the Fitbit web service. fitbit-server this setting allow to specify the name of the server to connect to when performing the synchronization. https-only setting this to false will allow galileo to fallback to unencrypted HTTP if HTTPS fails for sending tracker data to the Fitbit web service. hardcoded-ui This is a structured section that includes the answers needed during the pair‐ ing/firmware update process.


The following is an example configuration file: daemon-period: 60000 keep-dumps: false do-upload: true dump-dir: ~/.galileo-tracker-data logging: verbose force-sync: false https-only: false include: - '123456789ABC' - '9876543210AB' exclude: - 'AABBCCDDEEFF' - '881144BB1234'

Tracker IDs which consist of only numbers must be surrounded with single quotes (as in the EXAMPLE section above). It's probably a good idea to always quote tracker IDs to avoid possible confusion. Please report additional bugs to <>.
