Ability to have custom graphical output, such as a small PNG #1610
I don't even know if this is the right place to post such RFE. Perhaps it should be directed to i3status, or i3bar. anyways...
I'd love to be able to show custom graphics. Primarily to be able to have something like the gnome shell system monitor applet.
I think one would even be able to stick with the text based interface and use base64 encoded png files. We're talking <few pixels> × <few pixels> images anyway.
Please let me know if this is something doable, or if I should direct my efforts elsewhere.
To get such a feature as a general capability I guess like you that this is more of a i3bar or even i3 feature than py3status because py3status core is only responsible for outputing i3bar compatible JSON
That being said, as you know and hopefully appreciate about this project is that we can be creative with it :)
I'll try to find the relevant code and point to it here quickly as a reference. When they worked on it, the i3bar protocol was not passing down x and y coordinates but it now does so I'm sure we could get something done
