I would actually favour another approach for putty. My farr coding skills are below zero, but maybe someone would like to volunteer.
Let's suggest we have a flatfile named "putty_sessions.txt" with some content similar to this:
My Lil Server;-load green -ssh [email protected] -i C:\.ssh\myprivkey.ppk
Another one, production!;-load red -ssh [email protected] -i C:\.ssh\myprivkey.ppk
In the farr plugin config, there's something like this:
Now, the farr plugin of my dreams would parse the file and kind of compile an alias file out of it (on the fly of course):
My Lil Server | C:\Program Files\PuTTy\putty.exe -load green -ssh [email protected] -i C:\.ssh\myprivkey.ppk
Another one | C:\Program Files\PuTTy\putty.exe -load red -ssh [email protected] -i C:\.ssh\myprivkey.ppk
This would actually be very easy to handle: Instead of adding 100s of putty sessions into the registry, just put them in the textfile in this format. The "-load red" loads the color scheme in my cases. I already have putty aliases similar to this, but they are quite hard to maintan.
What do you think? Is this feasible?
PS: To be honest, I'd already have other purposes than putty. E.g. Ora SQL logins etc.
