leanshot

Screenshot-capturing utility for X11.

Requirements

You must have xcb installed.

Installation

Find it in package repositories:

To install from crates.io, use:

cargo install leanshot

Usage

leanshot -o hello.png select
leanshot -o hello.png fullscreen

Example Integration

It's nice to have a script like:

#!/bin/bash
SCREENSHOT=$HOME/.cargo/bin/leanshot
# choose some file to save it to
FILE="/path/to/screenshot.png"
$SCREENSHOT $1 -o $FILE
# optional: copy to clipboard
XCLIP=/usr/bin/xclip
$XCLIP -selection clipboard -t image/png -i $FILE

Then, you can bind this script to the keybinds of your choice using your window manager's config.

You can find other scripts in the contrib/ directory.
