gods

Summary

„gods“ stands for „Go dwm status“. It displays time, sysload, memory consumption, battery level and network transfer speeds.

Dependencies

Only a working Go environment and the xsetroot binary is needed. Per default you should use the Material Design Webfont (I'm using the version from Debian testing) within dwm, so you have the nice little icons. Otherwise you need to exchange some characters in the source (see gods.go header). For dwm the statuscolor patch is recommended.

Usage

To install, run

go get github.com/schachmat/gods

Then add the following line to your .xinitrc or whereever you start dwm, but before actually starting dwm:

$GOPATH/bin/gods &

Configuration

The Gods status bar can be easily modified, just by patching the source. You can add new informational panels, remove others, change the ordering or formating. With a custom font you can use own icons and separators and through the statuscolors patch config in dwm you can change the colors.

Contributing

This repository is meant as an example of how to draw your dwm status bar with go, as I use it. No additional features will be merged from pull-requests, but you can tell me about your fork and changes and then I can link them here as further examples for other people to look at.

  • phacops forked gods to not use a custom font, but rather replace the icons with plain text.
