Cinnamon DE panel applet to show unwritten data amount and initiate sync


What is this?

It is a simple panel applet for the Cinnamon Desktop Environment. Its main goal is to show the amount of dirty data in memory, and be able to execute sync operation by a single click.

The number one use case is to monitor yet unwritten data onto slow pendrives. Copying large files to a slow removable media seemingly might happen in a moment, but under the hood only the write chace was written. Initiating sync operation before media removal can prevent data loss by actually writing out the content of the cache.
