Customizable bar(s) for OSX.
The original widget created by herrbischoff can be found here.
You can find the necessary scripts in scripts directory.
These are as simple as Ubersicht widgets get, they make black bars at the top, bottom left and bottom right of the screen that the other widgets sit on top of.
This widget is designed to work with KWM. It shows the current KWM mode (bsp, float, monocle) and the number of desktops and the current one. If enabled in the Ubersicht preferences menu, holding the interaction key and clicking on the mode will cycle through the KWM modes and clicking on desktop icons will change the current desktop to the one clicked on. This works best if your interaction shortcut is ctrl.
This widget shows the currently selected window. If working on a file, it can highlight the name of the file being worked on.
This used to be a part of status.coffee but since it uses an API call it was very inefficent to have it update every few seconds. It is now its own widget that updates every 10 minutes signifigantly reducing the resources used.
This widget shows a number of current system indicators.
This widget works with MPD and NCMPCPP and the Transmission cli torrent client. It shows the current track and artist, the position in current track and has some simple play controls.
Clicking on the icon while holding the interaction key will toggle the widget between current MPD status and the current download progress of active torrents and the number of downloading / total.
There is also a Spotify widget included but you must
brew install shpotifya command line spotify utility by hnarayanan first
You can slide the range control to adjust volume. Icon changes with volume level.
Make sure you have Übersicht installed.
Then clone this repository.
git clone https://github.com/apierz/nerdbar.widget $HOME/Library/Application\ Support/Übersicht/widgets/nerdbar.widget
or to your current widget directory if you have changed it. The scripts may require installing some additional packages, such as Python, but all are available via homebrew.
The icons require the use of extra fonts:
That have to be installed system wide. You can drag the files into FontBook.app to do this.
