Clawsker - A Claws Mail Tweaker
-------------------------------

Clawsker is a Perl-GTK applet to edit hidden preferences for Claws Mail,
and to do it in a safe and user friendly way, preventing users from raw
editing of configuration files.

Claws Mail is a fast and lightweight Mail User Agent by the Claws Mail Team.

You can download the latest version from Clawsker homepage:

  http://www.claws-mail.org/clawsker.php

Dependencies
------------

  - Building:

  Nothing special: make, sed, install, gettext and pod2man.

  On Debian systems and derivatives:
  # apt-get install make sed coreutils gettext perl
  (Although you probably already have some of these installed)

  - Running:

  Perl - http://www.perl.com (>= 5.10)
  GTK+3 bindings for Perl - https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/perl-gtk3
  (>= 0.030)
  Locale::gettext - http://search.cpan.org/~pvandry/gettext-1.05/ (>= 1.05)
  File::Which - https://metacpan.org/pod/File::Which (>= 1.21)
  Claws Mail - http://www.claws-mail.org (>= 3.9.1)

  On Debian systems:
  # apt-get install libgtk3-perl liblocale-gettext-perl libfile-which-perl
  # apt-get install claws-mail

  - Test suite:

  Test::Exception - https://metacpan.org/pod/Test::Exception

Install
-------

After downloading the tarball:

  tar xJf clawsker-VERSION.tar.xz
  cd clawsker-VERSION
  make

If finished correctly, become root and:

  make install

Replace VERSION with the actual version number of the tarball.

Default install is under /usr/local prefix. If you want to install in another
location (for example /usr) replace last line with:

  make install PREFIX=/usr

Optionally you can provide also a DESTDIR as a root tree for the installation.

Test suite
----------

You can run the test suite with:

  make test

If running test suite fails please report a bug with all the messages
printed by the above command, the versions of Perl and the version of
Clawsker dependencies you're using.

Contributing
------------

Patches, bug fixes, and specially, new translations (or updates to the
existing ones) are welcome. Development uses git as VCS and takes place
on http://git.claws-mail.org.

Translators please read po/README file for details about translations.

Bugs
----

You can send bug reports to http://www.thewildbeast.co.uk/claws-mail/bugzilla/
by selecting the 'clawsker' product.

Also directly by mail to me or in the Claws Mail mailing list, but bugzilla
is the preferred way.
