Skylight on Linux - how to sync project files?

I've downloaded the Linux AppImage file, assigned execute permissions and ran it. I can see it's created a 'QuantConnect' directory in ${HOME}, as well as a '.mount_SkyliglyI7eJ' directory in /tmp. How do I sync my project files from the web? I use the BSPWM window manager so I don't have any menubar or applets. Even if I swtich to XFCE and run it there, I can't see anything appear in the menubar at the top. Are there any command line options I can use with Skylight instead?

Hi Joel,

Currently, Skylight doesn't support CLI arguments.

There is a CLI application you can use to sync your changes to the cloud: https://github.com/QuantConnect/quantconnect-cli though it is currently experimental, but it will stabilize in the future.

Regarding Skylight, if you don't mind using XFCE, you can install xfce4-statusnotifier-plugin to enable support for tray applications.

Skylight will automatically sync every minute once you've logged in, and the session is persistent across application restarts. This means you can login via XFCE and switch to your WM if you don't mind waiting a minute between sync events.

I've opened a new issue in Skylight addressing your use case (CLI args). Please feel free to follow up if you have any additional questions.

Best,

Gerardo

Thanks Gerardo! I'll give it a go.
