Sorry if my question was not clear enough.

Quote:
1. Is it possible to put text to Kindle screen from bash/python script other then with eips (to use Unicode characters)?
And thank you for your help.

You have never said WHAT you want to put on the screen, only what didn't work for you.
Without any clue to just what you are trying to achive . . . .

Write to tekUI - it has already been modified to play nicely with the Lab126 X11 installed.
The project page:
http://tekui.neoscientists.org/

The modified version (with examples):
https://github.com/janetizzy/KUAL-buttons

tekui does not have its own thread, the contribution starts here:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...9&postcount=15

And I have already set-up a 'standard practice' for extending the built-in Lua with <whatever> placed in visible USB storage.
A working example - look up (here) my CPU Report button thread.

It works for me.

Well, thank you all.

As for this little weekend project.
Tested on 3 devices and working well. Most annoying (for me) issues are fixed.

TODO: daemon mode, two-way sync (kindle->server: on next weekend), rewrite everything on Lua (in my next life)

https://github.com/trap000d/seafile-kindle-client

Known Issues/Bugs
- Only one way synchronization
- Client doesn't erase sub-directory (and it's contents) if it's not exist on the server
- Non-latin characters are not shown through eips
- Just rudimentary checks of internet/WiFi availability/file operations
- SSL certificate verification ignored (verify=False) just to make it work with self-signed SSL certs

So I've got some questions to developers:
1. Is it possible to put text to Kindle screen from bash/python script other then with eips (to use Unicode characters)?
2. Any suggestions in regarding to self-signed SSL certs, or just left it as is (verify=False)?

Do you have the project in a public repository?
Is it available under an Open Source license?

Yes, the question you asked was clear about your problem, but the problem lacked context.
Without proper context, it is impossible to suggest the appropriate answer.

So in the context you describe, my original answer remains the only one possible:
Quote:
1) Yes.
Your second question was also lacking context.
All certificate verification chains end in a self-signed certificate.
So the only context available there suggests you (or your verify code) is doing something wrong, not that the chain end certificate is self-signed.

In general:

It is open source and is in public repository.
I didn't think of any license until you asked me .
OK, GPL v3

Code:

BTW, did you ever work in support service ?

I know Seafile is, I meant your current Kindle project code.

Believe it or not, that one is difficult to answer.
The phrase has changed its meaning and usage over the decades.

"Support service" as in help desk (call-in, write-in, etc) customer support: Only in unpaid positions such as here.
Wrong personality type.

"Support service" as in (another slippery one) "Field service, install, test and repair": A large portion of my life.

"Support service" as in Director of a department supporting corporate management decision making (mostly marketing and corporate strategic planning): About twelve years.

The most inclusive, generally true description:
A supporting position of some type, either hands-on or in a management position over a department.
Covering the very simple (Your kid tripped over the cord and pulled it out of the wall) to some very exotic ones.

You don't believe, but I meant my project too.

If you read my first post once more and click on a proper link, you'll be redirected to github repository of the project.

Regards,
