hello, anyone knows if there is a method to run datawarrior without X11? we need to do some automation workflow on a server, but datawarrior need open a window by X11. I wonder if we could avoid this? Thanks.

I know you can run it on a server with ssh -X and have the output directed to the client, but whether you can redirect the x11 output to some NULL-device I don't know. The DataWarrior program code has no means to suppress GUI output and generates headless exceptions, if it is run on a headless server JRE without the UI-libraries.

yeah, datawarrior could run on a server, and redirect the GUI output to your local computer by X11. You just need to open a ssh connection with X11 forwarding, then excute export DISPLAY=:0.0 and run datawarrior on the shell. This will open a GUI window on your loacl computer.

Now, we could run datawarrior on a server with a macro to do somethings, but the window is unusefulness. So I hope to find some way to hide the window.

Fortunately, I found some tools like Xvfb (X virtual framebuffer), they could open a virtual display and redirect the GUI output to the virtual display on server.
