# Qasim (القاسم)

Travis-CI Code Climate

Qasim is a tool born to make your remote shares easily available from the system tray, on your desktop !

It uses the FUSE filesystem, thus everything gets accessible both on graphical environments and under command-line shell, on your favorite operating system (Linux, Windows, MacOsX, etc).


Qasim require the qtbindings gems. It installs automatically along Qasim's installation, but is quite long to build a native gem package.

N.B : If you experience trouble with Qasim dues to Qt bindings, make sure your Ruby installation was compiled with the --enable-shared option. If it was not, then reinstall it with the right arguments.

As an example, for ruby 1.9.3-p392 with rbenv :

$ CONFIGURE_OPTS="--enable-shared" rbenv install 1.9.3-p392

For others versions of ruby with rbenv you can try :

$ CONFIGURE_OPTS="--enable-shared" rbenv install $(rbenv version |awk '{ print $1; }')


To install Qasim, type the following command :

$ gem install qasim

## Usage

Qasim two tools : the CLI, for command-line environments, and the GUI, for desktop environments.

Using the CLI

To run the CLI, type :

$ qasim-cli command [options]

Using the GUI

To run the GUI, type :

$ qasim-gui

Then Qasim icon (quasim system tray) appears in your system tray. Click on that icon to mount your filesystems, change your preferences, etc.
