How Do I Use It?

  • Prerequisites:
    • XCode
    • A MacBook
    • a will to live
  1. Clone the repository.
  2. Open the project in XCode.
  3. Press ⌘ R (Command + R) to run, or use the Build option from the menu.
  4. Install the generated .app file into your Applications folder.
  5. Go to System Preferences > Users and Groups > Login Items, click +, and add the app.
  6. Hold and drag the little thing to wherever your little heart desires.

Why Does this Exist?

Why does anything exist? Does anything exist? 🤔 *cmatrix intensifies*

How Does it Work?

Poorly.

JK. It works pretty well. It's very simple, too:

I blatantly copied some code from God-knows-where and put it in Battery.swift, then wrote the BatteryAPI as a completely un-necessary frivolity to interface with it, with a series of highly complicated and useful functions such as:

func isCharging() -> String {
    return String(battery.isCharging());
}

Yeah that's right. I use semicolons in Swift.

Oooh. Aaah.

Basically it's a bunch of menuitems with an update function that does this:

statusItem.button?.title = batteryApi.currentCapacity(unit: true);
currentCapacityOutlet.title = "Current Capacity: " + batteryApi.currentCapacity();
maxCapacityOutlet.title = "Maximum Capacity: " + batteryApi.maxCapacity();
...

On a timer that looks like this:

Timer.scheduledTimer(
    timeInterval: 5, 
    target: self, 
    selector: #selector(StatusMenuController.timerFire), 
    userInfo: nil, 
    repeats: true
);

Contributing

Nah. I mean, if you really want to, I won't stop you. But there are probably many better things to do with your time.
