i3status

Description

i3status is a small program for generating a status bar for i3bar, dzen2, xmobar or similar programs. It is designed to be very efficient by issuing a very small number of system calls, as one generally wants to update such a status line every second. This ensures that even under high load, your status bar is updated correctly. Also, it saves a bit of energy by not hogging your CPU as much as spawning the corresponding amount of shell commands would.

Development

i3status has the following dependencies:

  • libconfuse-dev
  • libyajl-dev
  • libasound2-dev
  • libnl-genl-3-dev
  • autoconf (compile-time only dependency)
  • asciidoc (only for the documentation)
  • libpulse-dev (for getting the current volume using PulseAudio)

On debian-based systems, the following line will install all requirements:

apt-get install autoconf libconfuse-dev libyajl-dev libasound2-dev libiw-dev asciidoc libpulse-dev libnl-genl-3-dev

Upstream

i3status is developed at https://github.com/i3/i3status

Compilation

Prefer installing i3status via your Linux distribution’s package manager.

If you absolutely have to build from source, use:

  autoreconf -fi
  mkdir build
  cd build
  ../configure --disable-sanitizers
  make -j$(nproc)
  sudo make install
