Installation

  1. Clone and enter the repository:
$ git clone https://github.com/joestandring/dwm-bar
$ cd dwm-bar
  1. Make the script executable
$ chmod +x dwm_bar.sh

Quick Start

Simply run the script and dwm should display your bar:

$ ./dwm_bar.sh

Most likely, you will need to change some values for functions to get them to work - these are outlined with a comment for functions where this is likely the case. If you would like your bar to be displayed when X starts, add this to your .xinitrc file before launching dwm. For example, if the script is located in /home/$USER/dwm-bar/:

# Statusbar
/home/$USER/dwm-bar/dwm_status.sh &

# Start dwm
exec dwm

Customizing

dwm-bar is completley modular, meaning you can mix and match functions to your hearts content. It's functions are located in the bar-functions/ subdirectory and included in dwm_bar.sh If you want to make your own function, for example dwm_myfunction.sh, you should create it in the bar-functions/ subdirectory before including it in dwm_bar.sh and adding it to the xsetroot command:

# Import the modules
. "$DIR/bar-functions/dwm_myfucntion"

while true
do
    xsetroot -name "$(dwm_myfunction)"
    sleep 1
done

You can also decide to use unicode or plaintext identifiers for functions by altering the $IDENTIFIER value. For example, set to "unicode", dwm_mail will display:

[📫 0]

Whereas, if it is not set it will display:

[MAIL 0]

Acknowledgements

Code for some functions was modified from:

More to come!

  • dwm_bluez function to show currently connected Bluetooth device using bluez
