GtkEveMon is an EVE-Online
skill monitoring standalone application for
GNU/Linux systems. With GtkEveMon you
can monitor your current skills and your skill training process without
starting EVE-Online. You will never miss to train your next skill!
GtkEveMon also runs under
OpenSolaris (and probably others).
Oh yes, and under Microsoft® Windows®.
GtkEveMon is written in
C++ and uses
GTK for the GUI.
It is in a pretty stable state and major feature updates are
GtkEveMon is inspired by
EveMon, a character monitor
and skill planner for Microsoft's
.NET framework. Reportedly
EveMon also runs unter GNU/Linux with
Mono and some effort.
GtkEveMon does not aim at being as powerful as EveMon but rather
a lightweight alternative. Many features of EveMon are not, and will
probably never be, implemented. However, you're welcome to make feature
requests in the forums.
There are forums for GtkEveMon where discussion about the program happens,
and you can propose features, send bug reports or just talk about
the application. I'll also announce new features there. You can
also join us with IRC at #gtkevemon on
or send a mail to simonfuhrmann at gmx.de.
GtkEveMon 1.8 has been released a few days ago. A lot of
behind-the-scenes improvements were implemented and minor
features have been added. A Win32 version is also available
at the download page.
GtkEveMon 1.6 has been released. Focus on this release was CCP's
new certificate system and to have a stable basis for further
development. If that isn't enough, we're working on a MacOS X
and Win32 package.
The certificate system based on EVE's new certificate feature
and API data has been implemented. The GUI has been extended
and offeres a certificate browser now. See a
A lot has changed behind the scenes. In order to keep GtkEveMon's
data files up-to-date with the evolving EVE database, an update
feature with flexible backend
has been implemented.
With the new notification handler feature you can define
any external program that is executed if the skill training
is completed. For email notifications you simply set
a command line mail client as notification handler. See the forums
for details on this. Also the screenshots section got a lifting.
Take a look!
A skill planning GUI is available now! It works quite well
although a few features are still missing. Training
skills in the queue are not taken into consideration when
calculating the training time for subsequent skills and the
import/export feature will remain in the ToDo list for a while.
The latest patch introduced API changes and GtkEveMon revisions
prior 54 do not work anymore. I uploaded the current development
version, which is GtkEveMon 1.3 revision 56, as source code and
binary. You can find it at the download page.
It's been a while since my last news post but the project is
still heavily alive. The BattleClinic forum is where all of
the discussion and support happens. You're welcome to take part
and see what beautiful new features are available in SVN.
At this time I removed all software-related news, this is
available in the forums in a more detailed changelog.
The GtkEveMon Homepage has moved to
a lot to Chris "SghnDubh" Condon and all other people involved
for hosting my site and the SVN. Also, there is a new
dedicated to GtkEveMon.
I created the website for GtkEveMon today.
The program still misses a lot of features, but it is quite useable
even in this early stage.
The GtkEveMon project was born today, the
first feature that has been implemented is the server monitor.
