WireGuard needs to be installed.


$ pip install wg-tray


wg-tray [-h] [-v] [-c CONFIG]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help                   show this help message and exit
  -v, --version                show program version info and exit
  -c CONFIG, --config CONFIG   path to the config file listing all wireguard interfaces 
                               (default: none; use root privileges to look up in 

The config file should simply list all wireguard interfaces, separated either by newlines or spaces. The purpose of this config file is to avoid using root access on ls to read in /etc; however, its correctness is not checked and it is your responsability to keep it up to date.
If no config is provided, the interfaces are dynamically looked up in /etc/wireguard/.

wg-tray uses wg and wg-quick in the background, which need root access. Therefore, if you want to avoid being prompted for your root password each time you run it, use a config file and add the following lines to your sudoers file (sudo visudo to edit), replacing <username> with your user name:

<username> ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/wg
<username> ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/wg-quick
