This is perfect, I have used this on the manifest of all games created by GUI, and it shows exactly what I needed - size of the library. Now I have a clue of how much space I would need to dedicate for backups. Whether or not you incorporate it in the main GUI, combo of tools like these are going to make personal game copy preservation automated and easier.
Timboli: For those who would like such, I have developed a supplementary program for GOGcli GUI, called ManifestDB.
On a side note: I have to admit that I have just discovered the "right click on Add To Manifest, then click Download All option" thing ("discovered", as in, I have finally and carefully read the text in the biggest info button on screen). Needless to say, before that, I started adding game by game to manifest, manually, to use for ManifestDB. The horror... of not reading manuals.
One issue I encountered: Exactly at the game titled "Kajko i Kokosz", script dropped an error (I didn't remember to copy error details, but in command line error 503 and "Will try again" was mentioned).
But for this issue, I have healing - First I tried was clicking on the next game on the list (Kerbal Space Program), and clicking "Manifest for all", but it gave 503 error again. Then I clicked on "Kajko i Kokosz" - same error.
Here's the healing part - I exited the GUI, opened it up again, clicked on KSP, then "Manifest for all" and it worked.
"Kajko i Kokosz" was recently announced for delisting, and I also bought it at around that time. :) Could that be the problem with adding the game to manifest, now that it is delisted? If you need, I can check if the issue is reproducible with fresh GUI install, and copy errors.
Off-topic: In one recent thread, regarding rep points, Red Green was mentioned. Have you heard of Possum Lodge Podcast?
