Blingbling:

Join the chat at https://gitter.im/cedlemo/blingbling

Blingbling is a graphical widget library for Awesome Windows Manager. The goal of the Blingbling library is to provide more fancy, customizable and easy to setup graphical widgets, popups or signals for Awesome WM.

Originally, I have written Blingbling for myself but I share it under the GNU GPL-v2 (http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/gpl-2.0.html). Testers and feedbacks are welcome!

Versions

The current version is the v2.2 and it works with Awesome WM <= awesome v3.5.8 and Lua <= 5.3. Don't use the master branch of blingbling, this is an advice not an obligation. Some widgets may not work as expected because I am working on them. See the installation part below, in order to install the v2.2 version.

Documentation

You can find a full documentation for each widgets in the doc directory, just open the index.html file.

line_graph

Create a line graph and fill it with vicious for example (you can configure the widget with a table or with the related methods ):

cpu_graph = blingbling.line_graph({ height = 18,
                                        width = 200,
                                        show_text = true,
                                        label = "Load: $percent %",
                                        rounded_size = 0.3,
                                        graph_background_color = "#00000033"
                                      })
--cpu_graph:set_height(18)
--cpu_graph:set_width(200)
--cpu_graph:set_show_text(true)
--cpu_graph:set_label("Load: $percent %")
--cpu_graph:set_rounded_size(0.3)
--cpu_graph:set_graph_background_color("#00000033")
vicious.register(cpu_graph, vicious.widgets.cpu,'$1',2)
progress_graph

Create some progress graphs :

cores_graph_conf ={height = 18, width = 8, rounded_size = 0.3}
cores_graphs = {}
for i=1,4 do
  cores_graphs[i] = blingbling.progress_graph( cores_graph_conf)
  vicious.register(cores_graphs[i], vicious.widgets.cpu, "$"..(i+1).."",1)
end

Add those widgets to your wibox:

for i=1,4 do
  left_layout:add(cores_graphs[i])
end
value_text_box

Create a value text box:

home_fs_usage=blingbling.value_text_box({height = 18, width = 40, v_margin = 4})
--home_fs_usage:set_height(16)
--home_fs_usage:set_width(40)
--home_fs_usage:set_v_margin(2)
home_fs_usage:set_text_background_color("#00000099")
home_fs_usage:set_values_text_color({{"#88aa00ff",0}, --all value > 0 will be displayed using this color
                          {"#d4aa00ff", 0.75},
                          {"#d45500ff",0.77}})
--There is no maximum number of color that users can set, just put the lower values at first. 
home_fs_usage:set_text_color(beautiful.textbox_widget_as_label_font_color)
home_fs_usage:set_rounded_size(0.4)
home_fs_usage:set_font_size(8)
home_fs_usage:set_background_color("#00000044")
home_fs_usage:set_label("usage: $percent %")

vicious.register(home_fs_usage, vicious.widgets.fs, "${/home used_p}", 120 )
triangular_progress_graph

Create a triangular progress graph (can be feed with vicious too):

triangular = blingbling.triangular_progressgraph({height = 18, width = 40, bar = true, v_margin = 2, h_margin = 2})
triangular:set_value(0.7)
volume

Create a volume widget (triangular progress bar with specific methods):

volume_master = blingbling.volume({height = 18, width = 40, bar =true, show_text = true, label ="$percent%", pulseaudio = true})
volume_master:update_master()
volume_master:set_master_control()
popups

Add popups to one or more widget with blinbling.popups module:

--Example with cpu_graph created previously with default color :
blingbling.popups.htop(cpu_graph, { terminal =  terminal })

--Example with custom colors:
blingbling.popups.htop(cpu_graph, { title_color = beautiful.notify_font_color_1 , user_color = beautiful.notify_font_color_2 , root_color = beautiful.notify_font_color_3 , terminal =  terminal })
net

Create a net widget with a popup that display connection informations:

netwidget = blingbling.net({interface = "eth0", show_text = true})
netwidget:set_ippopup()
task_warrior

Create a new task_warrior menu:

task_w = blingbling.task_warrior({ menu_icon = file_path, project_icon = file_path, task_icon = file_path ,task_done_icon = file_path, width})
task_w:set_project_icon(themes_dir .. "/test/titlebar/maximized_focus_active.png")
udisks_glue

Create a menu which displays mounted media with actions like mount/unmount/detach/eject. Must be used with .udisks-glue.conf that I created. ( The name of the variable containing the widget must be the same in your rc.lua and in the .udisks-glue.conf).

udisks_glue=blingbling.udisks_glue.new({ menu_icon = themes_dir .. "/test/titlebar/maximized_focus_active.png"})

note: Added minor update to allow udisks_glue to insert a device without mounting it. See .udisks_glue.conf

system

Provide buttons with menu in order to reboot or shutdown the system. User can set icon for menu, accept and cancel actions.

shutdown=blingbling.system.shutdownmenu(beautiful.shutdown,
                                        beautiful.accept,
                                        beautiful.cancel)

reboot=blingbling.system.rebootmenu(beautiful.reboot,
                                    beautiful.accept,
                                    beautiful.cancel)
lock=blingbling.system.lockmenu() --icons have been set in theme via the theme.bligbling table
logout=blingbling.system.logoutmenu() --icons have been set in theme via the theme.blingbling table
clock

This part provides a clock which displays month, day of month and day of week in japanese (kanji form)

mytextclock = blingbling.clock.japanese(" %m、%d、%w、<span color=\"#999999\">%H<span color=\""..blingbling.helpers.rgb(20,31,82).."\">時</span>%M<span color=\""..blingbling.helpers.rgb(20,31,82).."\">分</span> </span>")
text_box

The blingbling.text_box are widget like Awesome textbox but with more parameters.

  • background_color the color used to fill the background
  • text_background_color a background color that will be set between the background and the text
  • h_margin v_margin margin between the text background and the wibox
  • rounded_size the size for rounded corners : this can be a number that applies for all corners or a table of 4 values { upper left, upper right, lower right, lower left }
  • text_color, font, font_size
tagslist

This object is an adaptation of the taglist object from awesome. Tags are blingbling.text_box. Users can provide a style for the tags as the last argument. The style must be a table with the 4 keys corresponding to the states of a tag (normal, focus, urgent, occupied). Each value of this keys are tables with style paramaters of text_box widget. (width, height, h_margin, v_margin, background_color, text_background_color, rounded_size, text_color, font_size, font.

Just replace the line

mytaglist[s] = awful.widget.taglist(s, awful.widget.taglist.filter.all, mytaglist.buttons)

with

mytag[s]=blingbling.tagslist(s,  awful.widget.taglist.filter.all, mytaglist.buttons --[[, { normal = {}, focus ={}, urgent={}, occupied={} }--]])

then add mytaglist[s] in the wibox :

left_layout:add(wibox.layout.margin(mytag[s],0,0,1,1))
calendar

This widget is different from the calendar of the v2.2 version. It is just a simple grid displaying days of month, week numbers. There are 3 buttons on the first row of the grid that allow you to displays the previous and next month or to return to the current month. Unlike the previous version, it must be added to a wibox in order to be displayed.

You can test it with the file config_example/calendar_rc.lua and the simple theme config_example/calendar_tests/. If you want a calendar that offers the same functionnalities than the previous calendar widget, you should use the extended_calendar.

cal_box = wibox({height = 200, width = 240, ontop = true, x = 200, y = 200})
cal_box.visible = true
local blingbling = require("blingbling")

-- cal = blingbling.calendar({locale = 'fr_FR'})
cal = blingbling.calendar()
cal_box:set_widget(cal)
cal_box.visible = true
extended_calendar

This widget is the new version of the calendar module of blingbling v2.2. While the calendar widget is a grid that displays days of month with some little functionnalities, extended_calendar is a wibox that contains a calendar widget and other text_box widgets. It allow you to register callbacks so that when you hover your cursor on a day cell, it triggers you callback. A working example can be find here config_example/extended_calendar_rc.lua. (it needs the application remind and you should adapt the code with your remind configuration file)

-- The arguments of the callback should be vizualized as :
-- calendar_day_widget : the widget that we focus on (it is a blingbling.text_box)
-- month : a number for the month that is displayed by the calendar
-- year  : a number for the year that is displayed by the calendar
-- info_cell : the blingbling.text_box on the right of the extended_calendar grid
local function print_info_enter(calendar_day_widget, month, year, info_cell)
  local day = calendar_day_widget._layout.text
  local month = month
  local day = day
  local str = day .."/"..month.."/"..year.." : No events for this day"
  info_cell:set_text(str)
end

local function print_info_leave(widget, month, year, info_cell)
  info_cell:set_text("")
end

cal = blingbling.extended_calendar({height = 300, width = 500, 
                                    ontop = true, x = 200, y = 200,
                                    days_mouse_enter = print_info_enter,
                                    days_mouse_leave = print_info_leave})
grid

It is a layout/container widget. It allows you to add child in the same way of the GtkGrid. The best way to see is to try the config_example/grid_rc.lua.

texts = {}
for i=1,5 do 
  c = tostring(i - 1)
  texts[i] = blingbling.text_box({text = tostring(i),
                            background_color = "#"..c..c..c..c..c..c,
                            rounded_size = 0,
                            h_margin = 0,
                            v_margin = 0})
end

grid:add_child(texts[1], 1, 1, 1, 1) -- child, left, top , width, height
grid:add_child(texts[2], 2, 1, 1, 1)
grid:add_child(texts[3], 1, 2, 2, 2)
grid:add_child(texts[4], 3, 2, 2, 2)
grid:add_child(texts[5], 3, 1, 2, 1)

grid_box:set_widget(grid)
transient

It is a wibox that can be displayed for a short amount of time. ( TODO : usage example)

wlourf circle graph

This is the circle graph of wlourf that you can feed with vicious.

circle = blingbling.wlourf_circle_graph({radius= 5, height = 18, width = 36, show_text = true, label = "cpu", h_margin = 2, v_margin = 0 --[[, font = {family = "Times New Roman", slang = "italic", weight = "bold"}]]})
circle:set_graph_colors({{"#88aa00ff",0}, --all value > 0 will be displayed using this color
                       {"#d4aa00ff", 0.5},
                       {"#d45500ff",0.77}})
--set the value directly
--circle:add_value(0.5)
--or use vicious
vicious.register(circle, vicious.widgets.cpu,'$1',2)
Global theming for blingbling.

You can provide default theme for blingbling instead of configuring colors for each widgets. You just need to create a blingbling table in your theme.lua file and override values that can be find in superproperties.lua:

theme.blingbling = {
  htop_title_color = "#ff0000",
  htop_user_color = "#00ff00"
}

Caution If you want that your values in the theme are used you have two possibilities:

  • use require('blingbling') after the line containing beautiful.init(the_theme_path).
.. in you rc.lua
...
local beautiful = require('beautiful')
beautiful.init(the_theme_path)
.. 
local blingbling = require('blingbling')
mygraph = blingbling.line_graph()
..
  • or if you set the require('blingbling') before you must use this statement : blingbling.superproperties(the_theme_path) before using any widget.
.. in you rc.lua
local blingbling = require('blingbling')
...
local beautiful = require('beautiful')
beautiful.init(the_theme_path)
.. 
blingbling.superproperties.init('the_theme_path')
mygraph = blingbling.line_graph()
..

  • h_margin
  • v_margin
  • background_border
