Barista

Release GoDoc Maintainability Test Coverage

Barista is an i3 status bar written in golang.

This is not an official Google product

Features

  • Based on push rather than fixed interval polling. This allows immediate updates for many modules, like volume, media, shell, etc.

  • Produces a single binary via go build. This makes it easy to set up the bar executable, since no import paths, environment variables, et al. need to be configured.

  • Good click handlers (especially media and volume), since we can wait for a command and update the bar immediately rather than waiting for the next 'tick'.

  • Configuration is code, providing oodles of customization options without needing myriad configuration options in a file somewhere. If/then/else, loops, functions, variables, and even other go packages can all be used seamlessly.

Usage

See samples/sample-bar.go for a sample bar.

To build your own bar, simply create a package main go file, import and configure the modules you wish to use, and call barista.Run().

To show your bar in i3, set the status_command of a bar { ... } section to be the newly built bar binary, e.g.

bar {
  position top
  status_command exec ~/bin/mybar
  font pango:DejaVu Sans Mono 10
}

See the quickstart for more details.
