A daemon to reduce the resource consumption of powerline by having a single python process that serves all powerline requests.
Currently only works on linux.
To use it, compile the powerline-client as
gcc -O3 powerline-client.c -o powerline-client
Make powerline-daemon executable
chmod +x powerline-daemon
Then copy powerline-daemon and powerline-client somewhere on your path, like /usr/local/bin
Launch the daemon with:
Then where-ever you have calls to powerline, like in your .bashrc or tmux config, replace them with:
That's it. powerline-client is a drop in replacement for powerline, it supports all the same arguments and options and produces identical output.
