[6.0.0] - 2019-01-08

logo

This release fixes a wide range of bugs and adds some neat new features. Scroll down to "highlights" to see the bigger changes from this release. A big thank you to @konimex, @iandrewt and the contributors below who kept development going during my absence.

Expect a minor bug fix release sometime this week as I'm sure new bugs will come up. I've done extensive testing but things always slip through.

Contributors

@konimex, @iandrewt, @arisinfenix, @xPMo, @nero, @alyssais, @plgruener, @StarryTony, @julianaito, @HolyStephano, @nikitenich, @Appadeia, @marlonn, @Snuggle, @Phuurl, @erikdubois

Breaking Changes

  • Config: Removed get_line_break().
    • Alternative: prin '\n'
    • Rationale: fix a bug that's been lingering for a couple of years now.

OS

  • Added support for Bedrock Linux. @paradigm
  • Added support for Namib GNU/Linux. @arisinfenix
  • Added support for Reborn OS. @iandrewt
  • Added support for OpenMandriva Lx. @konimex
  • Added support for Star. @arisinfenix
  • Added support for BlueLight OS.
  • Added support for Huayra Linux.
  • Added support for Pentoo.

Highlights

[ASCII] Added support for command output. You can now use whatever terminal commands you like as the ASCII art.

# Use fortune and cowsay as ascii art.
neofetch --ascii "$(fortune|cowsay -W 30)"

# use figlet as ascii art.
neofetch --ascii "$(figlet -w 30 hello world)"

scrot

Added a new "simple" mode. You can now use neofetch for scripting by getting it to output individual info functions in plain text.

# Example:
neofetch uptime --uptime_shorthand tiny
> uptime: 32m

# Example:
neofetch uptime disk wm memory
> uptime: 33 mins
> disk (/): 212G / 235G (96%)
> wm: Openbox
> memory: 1215MiB / 7881MiB

# This can be used in bars and scripts like so:
memory="$(neofetch memory)"; memory="${memory##*: }"

# For multiple outputs at once (each line of info in an array):
# Much faster than running neofetch multiple times.
IFS=$'\n' read -d "" -ra info < <(neofetch memory uptime wm)
info=("${info[@]##*: }")

Added new image backend chafa (--chafa) which displays images in the terminal using unicode characters.

neofetch --chafa ~/Pictures/meow.jpg

Those using distributions with an outdated Neofetch version in their repos can now easily install the latest version themselves.

Thanks to those who contributed this time around and thanks to those who discussed proposed changes in the bug tracker and Discord. I appreciate it. 👍

3.0 - 2017-01-23

This is another large release containing over 550 commits from 7 contributors. Due to the size and large amount of changes made this release expect at least one minor release to fix any bugs that come up.

The version number has been bumped to 3.0 due to the large amount of breaking changes introduced this update. I've added backwards compatibility for all of the new changes but there may still be some breakage. I highly recommend starting with a new config to avoid any issues that may arise.

Neofetch now supports displaying images using catimg, libcaca and jp2a. See this wiki page for screenshots. https://github.com/dylanaraps/neofetch/wiki/Image-Backends

Thanks to everyone who contributed this release, there were a lot of new faces this time around. :)

Contributors

IRC

Neofetch now has an IRC channel at #neofetch on Freenode. If you have any questions, issues or ideas feel free to join the IRC channel and I'll be happy to assist you. I know that we've already got the Gitter chat but hopefully this makes things easier for those without a GitHub account. :)

Freenode

Collaborators

I have given collaborator access to both @konimex and @iandrewt. In short this allows them to push directly to the master branch of the repo, manage the issue tracker and also merge pull requests. They've been a huge help the past year so this made sense to me.

OS

  • Added support for AIX.
  • Added support for AntiX.
  • Added support for GNU/kFreeBSD.
  • Added support for Gentoo FreeBSD.
  • Added support for GrombyangOS.
  • Added support for Joyent SmartOS.
  • Added support for Mer.
  • Added support for MINIX.
  • Added support for MX.
  • Added support for Open Source Media Center (OSMC).
  • Added support for SalentOS.
  • Added support for TrueOS.
  • Added support for Windows (MSYS2).

General

  • The default config file is now installed to /etc/neofetch/config and acts as a system-wide config file for Neofetch. Editing this file will make the changes available to all users on the system. Those packaging Neofetch without using the Makefile will need to make changes to support this.
  • The Makefile was rewritten to remove GNU-isms.
  • Removed executable permission from config files. BASH can source them even if they're un-executable.
  • Travis now runs shellcheck on every commit and pull request.
  • Neofetch now supports relative path values when specifying the location to images, ascii files and config files.
    • For example, neofetch --w3m Pictures/Wallpapers/10.jpg and neofetch --w3m 10.jpg now work.
  • Optimize usage of get_de(), get_wm() and `get_term().
    • We were calling these multiple times, we now only run them once and check to see if they were run previously.
  • Optimize info caching, only check for cache files in functions that use caching.
  • The manpage is now generated using help2man. help2man parses the output of --help and --version to create a manpage. This ensures that our manpage stays 1:1 with the script documentation. We actually found a lot of outdated info in the old manpage thanks to this.
    • A new flag was added called --gen-man which generates a neofetch manpage in your current directory.
  • Delete most of info() and instead call prin().
    • This removes a lot of duplicate code between info() and prin().
  • Remove printf subshells and instead use printf -v to declare the variables.
  • Fixed artifacts when using line-breaks in TTYs.
  • All errors are now sent to stderr.
  • Renamed XFCE --> Xfce. @gavinhungry
  • Cleanup main().
  • Renamed old_flags() --> old_options().

Info

Shell<br >

  • [Fish] Fixed memory leak caused by Fish.
  • Added support for xonsh.
  • Fixed version output on ksh.
  • Rewrote the function to remove duplicate code.

Uptime<br >

  • Moved duplicate code to a function.
  • Changed $uptime_shorthand to on by default.

Desktop Environment<br >

  • Fixed issues where MATE wouldn't be detected properly.
  • Added fallback to $DESKTOP_SESSION, $MATE_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID and $GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID.
  • Hide Desktop Environment if it matches Window Manager.

CPU<br >

  • [Linux] Don't simplify cpufreq speed option names for no reason.
  • [Linux] Fixed issues with CPU name detection for architectures other than x86/amd64/ARM.
  • [NetBSD] Remove case statement in favor of 1 line test.
  • Simplify check for low CPU speeds.
  • Expanded cpu_temp to take the values C and F. This means you can now display the CPU temperature as Fahrenheit.

CPU Usage<br >

  • Added Haiku cores command.
  • Updated Linux and macOS commands to the match the commands in the get_cpu() function.

GPU<br >

  • [Linux] Each GPU is now printed on a separate line.
  • [Linux] Added --gpu_type / $gpu_type which lets you display all, dedicated or integrated GPUs.

Memory<br >

  • [Solaris] Fixed inaccurate used memory size.

Resolution<br >

  • [Windows] Declare variables locally to fix conflicts in other functions.

Birthday Install Date<br >

  • Renamed get_birthday() -- > get_install_date()
  • Removed all date command usage from get_install_date().
  • Added a new function called convert_time() which takes the time stamped ls output and converts it to a pretty format. The function only uses bash so its much faster than calling date. This makes things simple and keeps the output consistent across all Operating Systems. Example: 2016-12-06 16:58:58.000000000 --> Tue 06 Dec 2016 4:58 PM
  • Added an option so users can choose between using 24-hour and 12-hour time format
  • get_install_date() will detect which ls program is being used instead of hardcoding them per OS.

Disk<br >

  • Rewrote function from scratch.
    • The function is 40 lines smaller than before and works on all [1] versions of df we tested on [2].
  • Added the option/flag disk_show which allows you to specify which disks, mount points or directories to show the disk info of. (One per line)
  • Added the option/flag disk_subtitle which allows you to specify how we label each disk. (Mount point or Disk name)
  • Removed all percentage calculation since df already provides us with the percentage.
  • Warn the user if df isn't installed.
  • Fixed broken output if df wasn't installed but the function was enabled.

[1] The function doesn't work on Haiku since their df is wildly non-standard. (The output format and flags are 100% different from all of the other df versions floating around.)

[2] Tested on GNU, Busybox, BSD, Solaris and macOS df versions.

Theme<br >

  • [KDE] Don't display GTK Themes if KDE is detected.
  • [KDE] If kde[0-9]-config isn't found, try and look for $HOME/.kde.

  • Merged $start and $end into an array called block_range.
    • This makes the config option match the command-line flag --block_range.

Images

2.0.2 - 2016-12-07

This minor release fixes some issues related to new features added in 2.0. These issues weren't picked up in the time between 2.0 and 2.1 and another minor release is needed due to the Packages issue being rather important.

These issues were fixed by reverting the GPU caching and Packages optimizations. These issues occurred because not enough testing was done before these were implemented in master. In the future I'll take more care with testing these larger changes before they hit the master branch and I apologize for there being yet another release in one week.

I also want to apologize to those packaging Neofetch for this unexpected release.

Info

Packages<br >

  • Fixed issue where package output was off by one.

GPU<br >

  • Fixed bug with --gpu_brand not working.

Theme<br >

  • [Cinnamon] Fixed incorrect information.

2.0.1 - 2016-12-06

This release of Neofetch fixes some important bugs that were found after 2.0 was release. This includes: Detection issues on CentOS and Linux Mint systems, Incorrect Memory usage on BSD, Linux GPU detection issues and more.

This release also includes a rewrite of the screenshot functions. You no longer have to set the program to use in your config. Neofetch now automatically finds and uses whatever screenshot tool is available on your machine.

See the screenshot section below for more info.

The get_packages() function was optimized. Neofetch's packages function works by detecting which package managers are installed on your system and then using a sum of those as the packages output.

Previously the function would call wc -l for every package manager, instead we now call wc -l only once at the end of the function.

Thanks for reporting these bugs and also suggesting these features. Don't be shy, report any bugs, annoyances or etc with Neofetch and I'll happily help you out.

Thanks to @konimex for all of his contributions this release. :)

2.0 - 2016-12-02

This is the biggest release of Neofetch in a long time. 97 files were changed with 2700~ additions to 2900~ deletions. Although the changelog isn't as interesting this time majority of the script has been rewritten, restructered and cleaned up. Every function and variable name follows a proper naming scheme and a large number of bugs were fixed.

Since this version of Neofetch differs so much from the previous versions expect a 2.0.1 release a few days later to fix any bugs that are found after release.

The ascii file handling was rewritten, ascii art is now stored/read as plain text! All eval usage was removed from Neofetch, vim fold markers/comments are no longer enforced and we now run on GNU Hurd, Haiku and more.

When I was rewriting parts of the script I thought to myself; Neofetch is using the bash shebang and does depend on bash so why not take full advantage of the features bash has to offer? All tests were changed from [ to [[, arithmetic tests now use (()) and C style for loops are used where possible.

All of the config file documentation was rewritten and multiple wiki pages were created to hopefully make using/configuring Neofetch easier than ever before. You can see the wiki here: Neofetch Wiki

Some of the config options/arguments were renamed/changed and Neofetch will warn you on run if you're using deprecated options (neofetch -v). For this release Neofetch will include backwards compatibility with the old config file but I'd like to remove this stuff in 2.1 3.0. I recommend using this release with a fresh config file so that you can make use of the new documentation.

I say this every release; This changelog is incomplete, for a full list of changes take a look through the commit history. Neofetch now has an unspoken commit style so reading the commit history won't hurt as much as it used to.

Thanks to all of the contributors this time around, you guys are a big help and I really appreciate your work towards making Neofetch better and better each release. :)

Fixed rendering issues in URxvt when using an XFT font.

scrot

This was first thought to be an issue between URxvt and W3m-img and I apologize for immediately closing bug reports and dismissing comments about this.

I spent yesterday trying to fix this issue and found out that launching neofetch with --bold off reduced the rendering problems. I did more digging and found out that removing all text formatting fixes the issue entirely. I later found out that adding a single unformatted character before the formatted text fixed the issue while keeping the formatting the same.

I opened up this PR https://github.com/dylanaraps/neofetch/pull/358 which added options to enable a border between the image and the text to fix the issue. @konimex later commented informing me that we could just use a zero-width space to fix the issue and that we didn't need a new function/args/ugly border. doh

The final fix was as simple as adding a zero-width space before the info, here's the commit.

https://github.com/dylanaraps/neofetch/commit/3e9c3d648cb4c6f0d5fe5f0b96f9e29429af39d9

Removed hard dependency on \033[14t

Neofetch no longer requires a terminal emulator that supports \033[14t this means that neofetch now works in Konsole. Instead of using the escape sequence users now have three options for getting the terminal size in pixels.

  • xdotool
  • xwininfo + xprop
  • xwininfo + xdpyinfo

Neofetch will detect whatever combination you have insalled and use these programs.

Note: \033[14t is still supported, if images already work for you then you don't have to install anything else.

  • [w3m-img] Draw the image twice to fix rendering issues in Konsole.
  • [w3m-img] Fix cursor position when using yoffset.
  • [w3m-img] Add -bg support with the new option --bg_color.
    • neofetch --bg_color blue will make the background behind the image blue.
    • Note: The background color is only visible behind transparent parts of the image.
  • If the terminal width is found as 0, fallback to ascii mode.

Ascii

1.8 - 2016-10-02

This version of neofetch is vastly different from the previous versions and this changelog won't cover everything that's changed. Have a look through the commit history for more info.

There were a lot of major changes to how things work in this release so I'm expecting bugs/things not working for people. Depending on what comes up we my release a few 1.8.X versions.

This changelog is a bit of a mess this time around and I apologize but it should at least get the message across.

Android support didn't make it into this release as it requires testing on more devices. If you've got a device running android and would like to help test out the branch, check out the open PR here: #322

This release also saw a lot more contributors which makes me really happy. Thanks to those below for helping out. :)

Hello, sorry this release took so long. I've been extremely busy with uni and haven't had as much time to work on neofetch.

As always, check the Following HEAD wiki page for all breaking changes this release.

I'm also looking for some new Readme screenshots, see this github issue: https://github.com/dylanaraps/neofetch/issues/245

Error Messages

Neofetch now supports displaying error messages and saving a verbose log for troubleshooting.

log

  • Added -v to print error messages to stdout.
  • Added -vv to print a verbose log to stdout. [1]

[1] Use neofetch -vv 2> file to save a verbose log for bug reporting.

Info

  • Rewrote most BSD info functions, they're now much smaller and work on more BSD distros.

prin

  • Format changes to fix issues with colons in string. This change also makes prin use the same args as info.
# OLD Format
prin "Subtitle: Text goes here"

# NEW Format
prin "Subtitle" "Text goes here"

Title

  • Made title faster by using $HOSTNAME when available.

Underline

  • Fixed bug with --underline on/off not working.
  • Underlining is no longer hardcoded to title length meaning you can now underline any part of the output and the length will match.
  • $underline was renamed to $underline_enabled.
# OLD Variable
underline="on"

# NEW Variable
underline_enabled="on"

Distro

  • Fix arch issues with ARM cpus.
  • We now use uname -m to get the arch instead of hardcoding x86.
  • Moved distro detection to a function called getdistro.
  • Fixed issue with ascii_distro not working.

CPU

  • Fixed issues when cpu speed was < 1Ghz
  • Cleanup of CPU function.
  • Don't print Dual-Core or Quad-Core in CPU output.

GPU

  • [Linux] More GPU substitutions for AMD cards.
  • Added BSD support using glxinfo.

Memory

  • [Linux / Windows] Use memavail if available for a more accurate output.

Packages

  • Package count now works when the user has multiple package managers installed. For example, if the user has both dpkg and pacman installed the function will add up the packages from both package managers to get a grand total. (dpkg pkgs + pacman pkgs)

Uptime

  • Fixed various issues with OS X and BSD.

Desktop Environment

  • [ Linux ] Fallback to using xprop if $XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP is empty.
  • Use $de instead of $XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP for wallpaper and theme detection.
  • Fixed xprop bug with DE detection when X wasn't running.
  • Don't assume that user is using MATE if marco wm is detected.

Window Manager Theme

  • Fixed bug when $de was unset.

Color Blocks

  • Fixed bug when the blocks wrap a line causing a large white strip to appear.

Ascii

  • Added KDE neon ascii art.
  • Added small OpenBSD ascii art.
    • Credit goes to ufetch.
  • Reduced the size of NetBSD's ascii art.
  • [Windows 8/8.1] Use modern windows ascii art.

Colors

  • Fixed bug with --colors not working with all 256 terminal colors.
  • --colors 7 now uses the color white. [1]
  • --colors fg now uses the foreground color. [1]

[1] Neofetch tried to be smart before by assuming that the foreground color would be white or black. This caused issues for those setting the foreground color to red or etc. This change adds a new value for --colors and colors=() called fg which will set the color to your foreground color.

Progress Bars

  • The default progress bar look was changed to [=====-----] instead of ━━━━━━━━━━ fix issues with older systems.
  • You can now enable/disable a border around the progress bars with progress_border.
# $progress_border on
[=====-----]

# $progress_border off
=====-----
  • You can now individually set the progress bar characters by using progress_char_elapsed and progress_char_total. This means that you can have a seperate character for the elapsed and total portions of the bar.
# Examples with $progress_border on

# Elapsed: =
# Total: -
[=====-----]

# Elapsed: .
# Total: " "
[.....     ]

# Elapsed: /
# Total: " "
[/////     ]

1.6 - 2016-04-01

Fetch 1.1 changelog

Over the past 10~ days over 190 more commits have been pushed to master and the script has had some big changes. Thanks to everyone who has contributed, you've been a big help.

screenfetch mode New screenfetch mode

  • If w3m or imagemagick aren't installed we gracefully fallback to ascii mode.
  • Automatically find the w3m-img path and fallback to ascii mode if not found. [1]
  • Fix padding escape codes on BSD systems.
  • Swap escape codes from \e to \033 for consistency.
  • We only move the cursor to the bottom of the terminal in w3m/iterm2 rendering modes.
  • Cursor position is now dynamic in ascii mode based on the height of the ascii and info text.
  • If images and ascii are off, don't clear the terminal
  • The script now exits correctly instead of always exiting with status code 1
  • If the script exits for any reason, unhide the cursor.
  • Removed duplicate blocks inside getcpu and getmemory.
  • Removed --colors as it was apparently broken from day 1.
  • Usage has been reformatted so that every flag has a value.

[1] Setting $w3m_img_path will make the script look there first.

Image

  • Added support for displaying ascii art inside of text files.
  • Added "screenfetch mode" which will display your distro's ascii art next to the info. [1]
  • Added --ascii_distro to choose which distro's ascii logo to display.
  • Added --ascii_colors and $ascii_colors which allow you to change the colors of the ascii art and distro logos. [2]
  • Added --size and $image_size to set the image size in pixels.
  • Rename --shuffledir and $shuffledir to shuffle_dir.
  • Rename --imgtempdir and $imgtempdir to thumbnail_dir
  • Removed --split_size and $split_size as they were weird and confusing to use.
  • Default thumbnail directory is now $HOME/.cache/thumbnails/fetch. Thanks @tudurom
  • If --image and --ascii are left empty we fallback to ascii distro mode.

Example usage of ascii from file:

fetch --ascii "path/to/ascii" --ascii_color 2

[1] How do I enable screenfetch mode? [2] ascii_colors takes a range of colors which allows you to color every aspect of distro and OS ascii art. For custom art the script will color the entirety of it using the first value of ascii_colors. If ascii_colors is left empty, color will be disabled.

Config file

  • Fetch now has a config file that you can share with people and keep between script versions! [1]
  • Added --config and $config_file to specify a custom config location.
  • Added --config off, --config none and $config to enable / disable config files at launch or in script.

[1] https://github.com/dylanaraps/fetch#using-the-config-file

Makefile

  • Fetch now has a make file due to the increasing number of files, this allows the script to be easily installed and uninstalled on systems it isn't packaged for yet! [1]

[1] The script will still work just fine on its own, you'll just be missing the distro ascii art and the automatic config creation.

Packages

  • Fetch now has a Gentoo/Funtoo e-build courtesy of @z1lt0id

Stdout

  • Added stdout mode which allows you to fetch info in a plain text format that works with lemonbar and in your scripts. You can use it by launching fetch with --stdout to print all functions enabled in your printinfo function. You can selectively print functions by passing arguments to --stdout like so:
# Print the output of all info functions enabled in printinfo
fetch --stdout

# Print the output of memory
fetch --stdout memory

# Print the output of memory and disk
fetch --stdout disk

# Print the output of all functions excluding x
fetch --stdout --disable kernel packages gtktheme
  • Added --stdout_separator and $stdout_separator which takes a string and adds it as a separator between the output.
  • Added --stdout_title and $stdout_title which allow you to toggle the title@hostname from appearing in the output.
  • Added --stdout_subtitles which allow you to toggle the Info: titles from appearing in the output.
# Hiding subtitles
fetch --stdout --stdout_subtitles off

# Custom separator
fetch --stdout disk gpu --stdout_separator "  |  "

NOTE: stdout_subtitles and stdout_title only work when --stdout is used on its own without any args.

Info

  • You can now display info without a subtitle. eg. info memory
  • Added --disable which allows you to stop an info line from appearing at launch.
  • Added --underline and $underline which allow you to toggle visibility of the underline at launch and in your config.
# Stop cpu, gpu, disk and shell functions from being called
fetch --disable cpu gpu disk shell

Kernel: Added --kernel_shorthand and $kernel_shorthand to print less or more kernel info Window Manager: Added support for $XINITRC GTK: Fix incorrect GTK3 theme being displayed CPU: cpu_shorthand: New substitutions GPU: [Linux] Count the number of identical GPUs. eg. Nvidia Geforce GTX 970 x 2 Memory: [Mac OS X] Added wired memory to memory usage.

Distro:

  • Added support for showing OS architecture. eg Arch Linux x86_64, Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit [1]
  • Mac OS X: Added support for showing Max OS X build version. [2]
  • Windows: Distro now displays Windows edition. eg. Windows 7 Ultimate

[1] You can toggle this using --os_arch and $os_arch. [2] You can toggle it using --osx_buildversion and $osx_buildversion.

Shell:

  • Added --shell_version and $shell_version to hide/show your shell's version.
  • Added --shell_path and $shell_path to hide/show the path to your shell

Birthday:

  • Added birthday which prints the age of your OS install.
  • Added --birthday_shorthand and $birthday_shorthand to shorten/lengthen the output of birthday.
  • Added --birthday_time and $birthday_time to show/hide the time in the output.

Battery:

  • Added battery which prints the battery usage percentage for each battery in your system.
  • Linux: Added battery_num which allows you to choose which battery to display, it also takes the value all which will print all batteries line by line.
  • Linux: Added battery_shorthand which when set to on prints each battery on the same line like so:
# battery_shorthand="on"
Battery: 10%, 5%, 67%

# battery_shorthand="off"
Battery0: 10%
Battery1: 5%
Battery2: 67%

# If there's only a single battery in the system
# we ommit the numbered title.
Battery: 10%
  • NOTE: This currently doesn't support BSD systems as we have no one to help us test

1.0 - 2016-01-27

Fetch 1.0

There have been over 260 commits to master since I last made a release and the script is at a point now where I can say that it's feature complete so I'm releasing 1.0. The script now supports many more OS/distros and has had lots of bug fixes, changes and features added.

I'm probably missing a bunch of stuff from this changelog so if i've forgotten anything, let me know!

I'm also slowly adding pages to the wiki so check it out!

Here's what's new:

  • Added full support for Windows, BSD and Mac OS X.
  • Fetch is now MIT licensed
  • Dropped the .sh from the filename and title.
  • Dropped support for mksh so we can support some bash only features.
  • Cleanup of everything
  • Added --prompt_height and $prompt_height to fix the script going<br > offscreen due to multi-line shell prompts. This option should be set to<br > your prompt height in lines.

Linux:

  • Fix issues with Elementary OS and CentOS.

Mac OS X:

  • Added support for other package managers.
  • Fix issue with multiple resolutions in getresolution

Windows:

  • Added getvisualstyle function to get the current Windows theme.
  • Added choclatey support to package count.

Info:

As of commit 9daacdd the info array at the top of the script has changed to a regular function. The benefits of this are pretty cool, you can now use any bash syntax to customize what gets displayed. You could have an if statment and only print window manager and gtk themes if X is running or only show current song if there's one playing.

You can see some examples and read more about it here:

https://github.com/dylanaraps/fetch/wiki/Customizing-Info


All:

  • All functions return Unknown or None instead of printing nothing.<br >

Title:

  • You can now color the @ symbol in the title using --at_color,<br > $at_color and --colors x x x x x x.

OS:

  • We now check lsb_release before looking inside of files, this fixes<br > detection for some *buntu based distros.
  • We now exit if the OS type wasn't detected.

Window Manager:

  • wmctrl is now used by default if found.

Uptime:

  • Added --uptime_shorthand and $uptime_shorthand to make the output<br > of uptime smaller and prettier.
  • Added new --uptime_shorthand and $uptime_shorthand value<br > called tiny. This makes the output even tinier. eg. 1d 10h 32m

GTK:

  • Added functions to get GTK Theme, Icons and Font
  • Added --gtk{2,3} and $gtk{2,3} to enable/disable gtk2 or gtk3 from<br > being displayed.
  • Added --gtk_shorthand and $gtk_shorthand to make the output of<br > gtk* smaller and prettier.

Packages:

  • Remove package version and color from Pacman output
  • All distros are now wildcarded so that version numbers from<br > lsb_release are ignored.

CPU:

  • Added more cpu speed types to --speed_type and $speed_type.
  • Use cpufreq when available instead of hardcoding it for specific distros.

GPU:

See issue #21

  • Added function to get the current Graphics Card.
  • Added support for VirtualBox GPU.
  • Added --gpu_shorthand and $gpu_shorthand to make the output of gpu<br > smaller and prettier.

Disk:

See issue #27

  • Added function to get current/total disk usage.

Song:

  • Added cmus support.

Images:

  • Added support for iTerm2's image rendering.
  • Added --image_backend and $image_backend to change which program<br > is used to render the images.
  • The image is now displayed before the text, this fixes image<br > rendering issues with vte based terminal emulators.
  • Added $w3m_img_path to set the location of w3mimgdisplay.
  • Unified all image options, the new var $image takes these<br > values: wall, shuffle, path/to/img.png, off.
  • Added shuffle to image modes. The script can now pick a random<br > image from a specified folder to display. You can pick the shuffle<br > directory with --shuffle_dir and $shuffle_dir
  • Fixed images getting cut off at the top.
  • Added image size to filename which allowed us to remove a really<br > slow check.

Wallpaper:

  • Added nitrogen and gsettings support.
  • Added wallpaper support to Mac OS X and Windows.
  • Fix hang when wallpaper isn't found.
  • We now check to see that feh set the wallpaper.
  • Fixed wallpapers with spaces in the filename.
  • wall is now the default image source.

Screenshot:

The script can now take a screenshot on script finish. You can use the flags --scrot or -s to take a screenshot.

--scrot and -s can also take a path/filename so you can choose where and what to name the file at launch.

If left empty --scrot and -s will use $scrot_dir and $scrot_name when saving the screenshot.

By default the script uses scrot as the screenshot program. You can use the launch flag --scrot_cmd or the option $srot_cmd to set the program to use to take the screenshot.

Wiki:

Added Customizing Info page which has info/examples about the new printinfo function.

https://github.com/dylanaraps/fetch/wiki/Customizing-Info

Added Customization which lists all options and their values.

0.2.1 - 2016-01-04

Here's what's new:

  • Mac OS X support (It's done now)
  • Resolution Detection (Off by default)
  • Song info is now off by default.
  • You can now display the image on the right with:
    • --image_position left/right
  • Fixed bug with multiple colons
  • Fixed underlines not being drawn the full width.
  • Functions now fallback to "Unknown" instead of printing nothing.
  • getos now gets os type and getdistro gets the distro.
    • This makes it even easier to add other os types.

Here's what I'm working on:

  • Finishing OpenBSD support
  • Cygwin support

Enjoy

0.2 - 2016-01-03

I finished my rewrite!

Here's what's new:

  • The script is now way faster.
  • You can now pick what gets displayed and where using an array at the top of the script. This also allows you to:
    • underline anything
    • print custom info
    • print a custom title
    • add linebreaks
  • Mac OS X support and a base that allows us to add other OS later.
  • You can now specify split size.
  • Fixed issue with 2 line prompts
  • Fixed image not displaying in vte based terminals
  • Move all config options to the top of the script
  • Moved almost everything to a function.
  • Removed wmctrl dependency
  • Made variable names more consistent
  • Added shell substitution for cpu output. This means that the cpu output won't include: (tm) (r) "Processor" "CPU"
  • Optimized all get* functions
  • Use variable substitution where possible as it's faster than sed/awk
  • Moved crop and smart_crop to crop_mode
  • Removed --size and --padding in favor of --split_size

Here's what I'm currently working on:

  • Window support (I'm almost done)
  • Option to swap the image and text around
  • Imagemagick optimizations
  • Cleanup of info array handling
  • More info outputs. Now that it's easy to customize what's printed and everything is a function we can add optional support for pretty much anything.
    • Resolution
    • GTK themes
    • Terminal Font
    • GPU
    • IP
    • etc

Issues:

  • Uptime doesn't work in OS X yet.
  • If the customizable info includes a third colon then it breaks.

I'd love to hear your thoughts.

0.1 - 2015-12-31

Changelog:

  • Added flag to disable bold text --nobold
  • Added flag to disable text wrapping --nowrap
  • Moved to using only printf instead of a mix of echo/printf
  • The script now aligns the cursor to the bottom of the terminal instead of using a hardcoded amount of newlines
  • Image size and padding is now dynamic, the only difference on the user side is that instead of setting a long line of spaces as padding, you set your font width. This means that you set the var once and the script will just work at any window size.
  • You can disable dynamic images and go back to the old behaviour with by using the --size or the in config var. $img_auto
  • Manual padding now takes a count, so --padding 10 will pad the text 10 spaces.
  • tput is now a dependency because we need (tput cols/lines/cup) for the dynamic images and it allows us to support more terminals.
  • Color block width can now be changed with the flag --blockwidth. It takes a count like --padding so --blockwidth 10 will make the color blocks 10 spaces wide.

Let me know if you're having issues.
