Pecan is a bar for macOS. It was built to be highly configurable and — by default — reports the current workspace, network bandwidth, date, battery percentage and time.
Pecan requires Übersicht. Once Übersicht is installed, you can clone this repository to where your Übersicht bars are placed.
git clone https://github.com/zzzeyez/Pecan.git "$HOME/Library/Application Support/Übersicht/widgets/Pecan"
If Übersicht is running, then the bar should appear.
Customization & Themes
Pecan includes a tool
pecan-style to allow users to save and load themes. There are, by default, a few included themes.
pecan-style, first place it in your $PATH
ln -s "$HOME/Library/Application Support/Übersicht/widgets/Pecan/pecan-style" "/usr/local/bin"
Then if you want to load the Fillmore theme, you do it like so:
pecan-style --load fillmore
You can also save and list themes by — respectively — using
Because Pecan is styled using CSS3 variables, the top lines of
style.css can easily be edited to change properties like opacity, alignment, padding, colors and more. If you are using this bar with Wal, then you should be editing
Pecan + Xanthia
Xanthia is installed then it will now use
Pecan's CSS/SCSS files.
Current download and upload speeds may be shown in the 2nd-to-left element via Ifstat. If Ifstat is not found, then the current wifi network will be displayed instead. To install Ifstat via Homebrew:
brew install ifstat
Current workspace ID can be shown on the left element if ChunkWM is installed, otherwise a power symbol will be shown instead. To install ChunkWM:
brew tap koekeishiya/formulae brew install chunkwm
Pecan can pull a color palette generated by Wal using Sassc. I have included a script,
wal-set, that will perform this.
To install Sassc:
brew install sassc
And then you must change the username at the top of
scss/style.scss to that of your own:
sed -i -e "s/zzzeyez/$USER/g" "$HOME/Library/Application Support/Übersicht/widgets/Pecan/scss/style.scss"
Now you can run the script to use Wal's palettes:
bash "$HOME/Library/Application Support/Übersicht/widgets/Pecan/wal-set"
