@ReDetection preset

@Pythonicninja preset

  • NightShift, DnD, Reminders, Pomodoro, Currencies, Weather, Play, Input, Battery, Time (tap for sleep)

@luongvo209 preset

@aadi_vs_anand preset




  • Thanks to the above presets spaniakos preset is an all in one preset solution with different bars embeded into one master.
  • Main: Escape, native touchbar, running apps, Spotify with two-finger volume and three finger brightness control, Media/$$/Info sub bars, language change, battery%, sleep, time (only time 24H format),
  • Media bar: Brightness, mute, volume control, spotify control.
  • Crypt bar Various Crypto values preset, Some are in $ and some in €
  • Info: weather info, CPU, disk, Network meter, DnD (Do not Disturb), Day/Night mode, Countdown timer (tomato) , language selection , battery % date with day, month , time (12H format), AM/PM


  • Battery, CPU, Network, (reserved for disk activity), Music Prev, Music Play/Pause, Music Next, Music Track, Sound volume down, Sound slide, Sound volume up, Input language, Screensaver

Only two custom things here (and an icon for the battery) :

  • CPU button is more based on what you can see in Activity Monitor. You must copy the AppleScript file cpu.scpt to the folder : /Users/Shared/MTMR/
  • The last button "power lock", simply start the screensaver (and lock the current session). I prefer that than a full sleep or a sleep display. Now, i'm seeking for a disk real-time activity button.

@megatops preset

The brightness and volume slider icons are from @Frityet preset.

@trumad plexWidget

Pay attention to these variables at the start of the apple script which you'll need to personalise for this to work:

set plexUrl to "YOUR.PLEX.URL.OR.IP.COM" (Your plex URL - domain/IP only, no https:// or port etc)

set plexToken to "YOUR_PLEX_TOKEN" (

set playerName to "PLAYER_ID_FOR_COMPUTER_MTMR_IS_USED_ON" (It's important to set a player name so that the currently displayed music is that which is playing on your touchbar mac, not some other device. The player name can be found by visiting http://YOUR_PLEX_URL:32400/status/sessions?X-Plex-Token=YOUR_PLEX_TOKEN in a browser while music is playing. In the "<Player" section of the XML output, look for a "title" attribute which shows the name Plex is giving your computer. Alternatively, in Plex settings view Authorised devices and copy the name from the top of the relevant entry)

Touching the plex display on your touch screen will focus the Plex Media Player app, if you're using it. If you're using plex in a browser, maybe consider installing the app instead.

Hopefully someone finds this useful. If there are any bugs or improvement that can be made to my apple script or anything, please let me know!
