Display air quality polluting in a given location.

An air quality index (AQI) is a number used by government agencies to communicate to the public how polluted the air currently is or how polluted it is forecast to become. As the AQI increases, an increasingly large percentage of the population is likely to experience increasingly severe adverse health effects. Different countries have their own air quality indices, corresponding to different national air quality standards.

    {price_xxx} eg (new output here) {24h_volume_xxx} eg (new output here) {market_cap_xxx} eg (new output here)

    Valid options are: AUD, BRL, CAD, CHF, CNY, EUR, GBP, HKD, IDR, INR, JPY, KRW, MXN, RUB, otherwise USD… and be written in lowercase.

Color thresholds:
  • xxx print a color based on the value of xxx placeholder

Examples:

# view coins in GBP and optionally USD
coin_market {
    format_coin = '{name} £{price_gbp:.2f} ${price_usd:.2f} {percent_change_24h}'
}

# display top five markets
coin_market {
    markets = 5
}

# colorize market names
coin_market {
    format_coin = "[\?color=name {name}] ${price_usd:.2f} "
    format_coin += "[\?color=percent_change_24h {percent_change_24h}%]"
    markets = ["btc", "eth", "ltc", "doge"]
    thresholds = {
        "name": [
            ("Bitcoin", "greenyellow"),
            ("Ethereum", "deepskyblue"),
            ("Litecoin", "crimson"),
            ("Dogecoin", "orange"),
        ],
        "percent_change_24h": [(-100, "bad"), (0, "good")],
    }
}

# show and/or customize last_updated time
coin_market {
    format_coin = '{name} ${price_usd:.2f} '
    format_coin += '[\?color=percent_change_24h {percent_change_24h}%] {last_updated}'
    format_datetime = {'last_updated': '\?color=degraded last updated %-I:%M%P'}

Configuration parameters:
  • cache_timeout refresh interval for this module; for xfce4-notifyd (default 30)
  • format display format for this module (default ‘{name} [\?color=state&show DND]’)
  • pause specify whether to pause or kill processes; for dunst see Dunst Miscellaneous section for more information (default False)
  • server specify server to use, eg dunst or xfce4-notifyd, otherwise auto (default None)
  • state specify state to use on startup, otherwise last False: disable Do Not Disturb on startup True: enable Do Not Disturb on startup last: toggle last known state on startup None: query current state from notification manager (doesn’t work on dunst) (default ‘last’)
  • thresholds specify color thresholds to use (default [(0, ‘bad’), (1, ‘good’)])
Format placeholders:
  • {name} name, eg Dunst, Xfce4-notifyd
  • {state} do not disturb state, eg 0, 1
Color thresholds:
  • xxx print a color based on the value of xxx placeholder
Dunst Miscellaneous:
When paused, dunst will not display any notifications but keep all notifications in a queue. This can for example be wrapped around a screen locker (i3lock, slock) to prevent flickering of notifications through the lock and to read all missed notifications after returning to the computer. This means that by default (pause = False), all notifications sent while DND is active will NOT be queued and displayed when DND is deactivated.

Examples:

# display ON/OFF
do_not_disturb {
    format = '{name} [\?color=state [\?if=state  ON|OFF]]'
}

# display 1/0
do_not_disturb {
    format = '{name} [\?color=state {state}]'
}

# display DO NOT DISTURB/DISTURB
do_not_disturb {
    format = '[\?color=state [\?if=state DO NOT DISTURB|DISTURB]]'
    thresholds = [(0, "darkgray"), (1, "good")]

getjson

_images/getjson-0.png

Display JSON data fetched from a URL.

This module gets the given url configuration parameter and assumes the response is a JSON object. The keys of the JSON object are used as the format placeholders. The format placeholders are replaced by the value. Objects that are nested can be accessed by using the delimiter configuration parameter in between.

Configuration parameters:
  • cache_timeout refresh interval for this module (default 30)
  • delimiter the delimiter between parent and child objects (default ‘-‘)
  • format display format for this module (default None)
  • url specify URL to fetch JSON from (default None)
Format placeholders:

Placeholders will be replaced by the JSON keys.

Placeholders for objects with sub-objects are flattened using ‘delimiter’ in between (eg. {‘parent’: {‘child’: ‘value’}} will use placeholder {parent-child}).

Placeholders for list elements have ‘delimiter’ followed by the index (eg. {‘parent’: [‘this’, ‘that’]) will use placeholders {parent-0} for ‘this’ and {parent-1} for ‘that’.

Examples:

# straightforward key replacement
url = 'http://ip-api.com/json'
format = '{lat}, {lon}'

# access child objects
url = 'https://api.icndb.com/jokes/random'
format = '{value-joke}'

# access title from 0th element of articles list
url = 'https://newsapi.org/v1/articles?source=bbc-news&sortBy=top&apiKey={KEY}'
format = '{articles-0-title}'

# access if top-level object is a list
url = 'https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts/1/comments'
format = '{0-name}'

    format = '{repo} {issues}/{pull_requests}{notifications}'

    # otherwise, this will be used
    format '{repo} {issues}/{pull_requests}'
}

# set github access credentials
github {
    auth_token = '40_char_hex_access_token'

  3. OAuth 2.0 credentials for the Google Calendar api.

Follow Step 1 of the guide here to obtain your OAuth 2.0 credentials: https://developers.google.com/google-apps/calendar/quickstart/python

Download the client_secret.json file which contains your client ID and client secret. In your config file, set configuration parameter client_secret to the path to your client_secret.json file.

The first time you run the module, a browser window will open asking you to authorize access to your calendar. After authorization is complete, an access/refresh token will be saved to the path configured in auth_token, and i3status will be restarted. This restart will occur only once after the first time you successfully authorize.

Examples:

# add color gradients for events and dates/times
google_calendar {
    thresholds = {
        'event': [(1, '#d0e6ff'), (2, '#bbdaff'), (3, '#99c7ff'),
            (4, '#86bcff'), (5, '#62a9ff'), (6, '#8c8cff'), (7, '#7979ff')],
        'time': [(1, '#ffcece'), (2, '#ffbfbf'), (3, '#ff9f9f'),
            (4, '#ff7f7f'), (5, '#ff5f5f'), (6, '#ff3f3f'), (7, '#ff1f1f')]

graphite

_images/graphite-0.png

Display Graphite metrics.

Configuration parameters:
  • cache_timeout how often we refresh this module in seconds. (default 120)
  • datapoint_selection when multiple data points are returned, use “max” or “min” to determine which one to display. (default “max”)
  • format you MUST use placeholders here to display data, see below. (default ‘’)
  • graphite_url URL to your graphite server. (default ‘’)
  • http_timeout HTTP query timeout to graphite. (default 10)
  • proxy You can configure the proxy with HTTP or HTTPS. examples: proxy = ‘https://myproxy.example.com:1234/’ proxy = ‘http://user:passwd@myproxy.example.com/’ proxy = ‘socks5://user:passwd@host:port’ (proxy_socks is available after an ‘pip install requests[socks]’) (default None)
  • targets semicolon separated list of targets to query graphite for. (default ‘’)
  • threshold_bad numerical threshold, if set will send a notification and colorize the output. (default None)
  • threshold_degraded numerical threshold, if set will send a notification and colorize the output. (default None)
  • timespan time range to query graphite for. (default “-2minutes”)
  • value_comparator choose between “max” and “min” to compare thresholds to the data point value. (default “max”)
  • value_format pretty format long numbers with “K”, “M” etc. (default True)
  • value_round round values so they’re not displayed as floats. (default True)
Dynamic format placeholders:

The “format” parameter placeholders are dynamically based on the data points names returned by the “targets” query to graphite.

For example if your target is "carbon.agents.localhost-a.memUsage", you’d get a JSON result like this:

{
    "target": "carbon.agents.localhost-a.memUsage",
    "datapoints": [[19693568.0, 1463663040]]
}
So the placeholder you could use on your “format” config is:
format = "{carbon.agents.localhost-a.memUsage}"

TIP: use aliases !

targets = "alias(carbon.agents.localhost-a.memUsage, 'local_memuse')"
format = "local carbon mem usage: {local_memuse} bytes"
Color options:
  • color_bad threshold_bad has been exceeded
  • color_degraded threshold_degraded has been exceeded

group

_images/group-0.png _images/group-1-cycle.png _images/group-2-cycle_again.png

Group modules and switch between them.

Groups can be configured in your config. The active one of these groups is shown in the i3bar. The active group can be changed by a user click. If the click is not used by the group module then it will be passed down to the displayed module.

Modules can be i3status core modules or py3status modules. The active group can be cycled through automatically.

The group can handle clicks by reacting to any that are made on it or its content or it can use a button and only respond to clicks on that. The way it does this is selected via the click_mode option.

Configuration parameters:
  • align Text alignment when fixed_width is set can be ‘left’, ‘center’ or ‘right’ (default ‘center’)
  • button_next Button that when clicked will switch to display next module. Setting to 0 will disable this action. (default 5)
  • button_prev Button that when clicked will switch to display previous module. Setting to 0 will disable this action. (default 4)
  • button_toggle Button that when clicked toggles the group content being displayed between open and closed. This action is ignored if {button} is not in the format. Setting to 0 will disable this action (default 1)
  • click_mode This defines how clicks are handled by the group. If set to all then the group will respond to all click events. This may cause issues with contained modules that use the same clicks that the group captures. If set to button then only clicks that are directly on the {button} are acted on. The group will need {button} in its format. (default ‘all’)
  • cycle Time in seconds till changing to next module to display. Setting to 0 will disable cycling. (default 0)
  • fixed_width Reduce the size changes when switching to new group (default False)
  • format display format for this module, see Examples below (default None)
  • format_button_closed Format for the button when group open (default ‘+’)
  • format_button_open Format for the button when group closed (default ‘-‘)
  • format_closed Format for module output when closed. (default “{button}”)
  • open Is the group open and displaying its content. Has no effect if {button} not in format (default True)
Format placeholders:
  • {button} The button to open/close or change the displayed group
  • {output} Output of current active module

Examples:

# default formats
group {
    format = '{output}'           # if click_mode is 'all'
    format = '{output} {button}'  # if click_mode is 'button'
}

# Create a disks group that will show space on '/' and '/home'
# Change between disk modules every 30 seconds
order += "group disks"
group disks {
    cycle = 30
    format = "Disks: {output} {button}"
    click_mode = "button"

    disk "/" {
        format = "/ %avail"
    }
    disk "/home" {
        format = "/home %avail"
    }

hddtemp

_images/hddtemp-0.png _images/hddtemp-1-path.png _images/hddtemp-2-compact.png

Display hard drive temperatures.

hddtemp is a small utility with daemon that gives the hard drive temperature via S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology). This module requires the user-defined hddtemp daemon to be running at all times.

Configuration parameters:
  • cache_timeout refresh interval for this module (default 10)
  • format display format for this module (default ‘{format_hdd}’)
  • format_hdd display format for hard drives (default ‘{name} [\?color=temperature {temperature}°{unit}]’)
  • format_separator show separator if more than one (default ‘ ‘)
  • thresholds specify color thresholds to use (default [(19, ‘skyblue’), (24, ‘deepskyblue’), (25, ‘lime’), (41, ‘yellow’), (46, ‘orange’), (51, ‘red’), (56, ‘tomato’)])
Format placeholders:
  • {format_hdd} format for hard drives
format_hdd placeholders:
  • {name} name, eg ADATA SP550
  • {path} path, eg /dev/sda
  • {temperature} temperature, eg 32
  • {unit} temperature unit, eg C
Temperatures:
Less than 25°C: Too cold (color deepskyblue) 25°C to 40°C: Ideal (color good) 41°C to 50°C: Acceptable (color degraded) 46°C to 50°C: Almost too hot (color orange) More than 50°C: Too hot (color bad)
Color thresholds:
  • xxx print a color based on the value of xxx placeholder
Requires:
  • hddtemp utility to monitor hard drive temperatures
Bible of HDD failures:

Hard disk temperatures higher than 45°C led to higher failure rates. Temperatures lower than 25°C led to higher failure rates as well. Aging hard disk drives (3 years and older) were much more prone to failure when their average temperatures were 40°C and higher.

Hard disk manufacturers often state the operating temperatures of their hard disk drives to be between 0°C to 60°C. This can be misleading because what they mean is that your hard disk will function at these temperatures, but it doesn’t tell you anything about how long they are going to survive at this range. http://www.buildcomputers.net/hdd-temperature.html

Backblaze:
Overall, there is not a correlation between operating temperature and failure rates The one exception is the Seagate Barracuda 1.5TB drives, which fail slightly more when they run warmer. As long as you run drives well within their allowed range of operating temperatures, keeping them cooler doesn’t matter. https://www.backblaze.com/blog/hard-drive-temperature-does-it-matter/

Examples:

# compact the format
hddtemp {
    format = 'HDD {format_hdd}'
    format_hdd = '\?color=temperature {temperature}°C'
}

# show paths instead of names
hddtemp {
    format_hdd = '{path} [\?color=temperature {temperature}°{unit}]'
}

# show more colors
hddtemp {
    gradients = True

  • sct set color temperature with about 40 lines of C or so
Suggestions:
  • campfire 4500 dust storm on mars: 2000 coffee free all nighter: 8000
Notes:
hueshift can be disabled due to enabled running processes. sct and blueshift shifts only on one monitor, ideal for laptops. redshift shifts more than one, ideal for multi-monitors setups.

Examples:

# different theme
hueshift {
    format = '\?color=color_temperature ☼ {color_temperature}K'
}

# for best results, add some limitations
hueshift {
    minimum = 3000
    maximum = 10000

i3block

_images/i3block-0.png _images/i3block-1-bandwidth.png

Support i3blocks blocklets in py3status.

i3blocks, https://github.com/vivien/i3blocks, is a project to allow simple scripts to provide output to the i3bar. This module allows these blocklets to run under py3status. The configuration of the blocklets is similar to how they are configured in i3blocks.

Configuration parameters:
  • cache_timeout How often the blocklet should be called (in seconds). This is similar to cache_timeout used by standard modules. However it can also take the following values; once the blocklet will be called once, repeat the blocklet will be called constantly, or persist where the command will be expected to keep providing new data. If this is not set or is None then the blocklet will not be called unless clicked on. To simplify i3block compatability, this configuration parameter can also be provided as interval. (default None)
  • command Path to blocklet or command (default None)
  • format What to display on the bar (default ‘{output}’)
  • instance Will be provided to the blocklet as $BLOCK_INSTANCE (default ‘’)
  • label Will be prepended to the blocklets output (default ‘’)
  • name Name of the blocklet - passed as $BLOCK_NAME (default ‘’)
Format placeholders:
  • {output} The output of the blocklet
Notes:

i3blocks and i3blocklets are subject to their respective licenses.

This support is experimental and done for convenience to users so they can benefit from both worlds, issues or PRs regarding i3blocks related blocklets should not be raised.

Some blocklets may return pango markup eg <span ... if so set markup = pango in the config for that module.

format configuration parameter is used as is standard in py3status, not as in i3blocks configuration. Currently blocklets must provide responses in the standard i3blocks manner of one line per value (not as json).

Examples:

# i3blocks config
[time]
command=date '+%D %T'
interval=5

[wifi]
instance=wls1
label='wifi:'
command=~/i3blocks/wifi.sh
interval=5

# py3status config
order += 'i3block time'
i3block time {
    command = "date '+%D %T'"
    interval = 5
}

# different py3status config
order += 'i3block wifi'
i3block wifi {
    instance = wls1
    label = 'wifi:'
    command = '~/i3blocks/wifi.sh'
    interval = 5
}

Display average system load over a period of time.

In UNIX computing, the system load is a measure of the amount of computational work that a computer system performs. The load average represents the average system load over a period of time. It conventionally appears in the form of three numbers which represent the system load during the last one-, five-, and fifteen-minute periods.

Configuration parameters:
  • cache_timeout refresh interval for this module (default 5)
  • format display format for this module (default ‘Loadavg [\?color=1avg {1min}] ‘ ‘[\?color=5avg {5min}] [\?color=15avg {15min}]’)
  • thresholds specify color thresholds to use (default [(0, ‘#9dd7fb’), (20, ‘good’), (40, ‘degraded’), (60, ‘#ffa500’), (80, ‘bad’)])
Format placeholders:
  • {1min} load average during the last 1-minute, eg 1.44
  • {5min} load average during the last 5-minutes, eg 1.66
  • {15min} load average during the last 15-minutes, eg 1.52
  • {1avg} load average percentage during the last 1-minute, eg 12.00
  • {5avg} load average percentage during the last 5-minutes, eg 13.83
  • {15avg} load average percentage during the last 15-minutes, eg 12.67
Color thresholds:
  • xxx print a color based on the value of xxx placeholder

mail

_images/mail-0.png _images/mail-1-identified.png _images/mail-2-individualized.png _images/mail-3-no_mail.png

Display number of messages in various mailbox formats. This module supports Maildir, mbox, MH, Babyl, MMDF, and IMAP.

Configuration parameters:
  • accounts specify a dict consisting of mailbox types and a list of dicts consisting of mailbox settings and/or paths to use (default {})
  • cache_timeout refresh interval for this module (default 60)
  • format display format for this module (default ‘\?not_zero Mail {mail}|No Mail’)
  • thresholds specify color thresholds to use (default [])
Format placeholders:
  • {mail} number of messages

  • {maildir} number of Maildir messages

  • {mbox} number of mbox messages

  • {mh} number of MH messages

  • {babyl} number of Babyl messages

  • {mmdf} number of MMDF messages

  • {imap} number of IMAP messages

    We can divide mailbox, eg {maildir}, into numbered placeholders based on number of mailbox accounts, eg {maildir_1}, and if we add name to a mailbox account, we can use {name} placeholder instead, eg {home}.

Color thresholds:
  • xxx print a color based on the value of xxx placeholder
IMAP Subscriptions:

You can specify a list of filters to decide which folders to search. By default, we search only the INBOX folder (ie: ['^INBOX$']). We can use regular expressions, so if you use more than one, it would be joined by a logical operator or.

'.*' will match all folders. 'pattern' will match folders containing pattern. '^pattern' will match folders beginning with pattern. 'pattern$' will match folders ending with pattern. '^((?![Ss][Pp][Aa][Mm]).)*$' will match all folders except for every possible case of spam folders.

For more documentation, see https://docs.python.org/3/library/re.html and/or any regex builder on the web. Don’t forget to escape characters.

rainbow

_images/rainbow-0.png

Add color cycling fun to your i3bar.

This is the most pointless yet most exciting module you can imagine.

It allows color cycling of modules. Imagine the joy of having the current time change through the colors of the rainbow.

If you were completely insane you could also use it to implement the i3bar equivalent of the <blink> tag and cause yourself endless headaches and the desire to vomit.

The color for the contained module(s) is changed and cycles through your chosen gradient by default this is the colors of the rainbow. This module will increase the amount of updates that py3status needs to do so should be used sparingly.

Configuration parameters:
  • cycle_time How often we change this color in seconds (default 1)
  • force If True then the color will always be set. If false the color will only be changed if it has not been set by a module. (default False)
  • format display format for this module (default ‘{output}’)
  • gradient The colors we will cycle through, This is a list of hex values (default [ ‘#FF0000’, ‘#FFFF00’, ‘#00FF00’, ‘#00FFFF’, ‘#0000FF’, ‘#FF00FF’, ‘#FF0000’, ])
  • multi_color If True then each module the rainbow contains will be colored differently (default True)
  • steps Number of steps between each color in the gradient (default 10)
Format placeholders:
  • {output} rainbow output

Examples:

# show time colorfully
order += "rainbow time"
rainbow time {
    time {}
}

# blinking text black/white
order += "rainbow blink_time"
rainbow blink_time {
    gradient = [
        '#FFFFFF',
        '#000000',
    ]
    steps = 1
    time {}

rss_aggregator

_images/rss_aggregator-0.png

Display unread feeds in your favorite RSS aggregator.

Configuration parameters:

  • folder_ids list of IDs of folders ro watch (default [])
  • format format to display (default ‘Feed: {unseen}’)
  • password login password (default None)
  • server aggregator server to connect to (default ‘https://yourcloudinstance.com’)
  • user login user (default None)
Format placeholders:
  • {unseen} sum of numbers of unread feed elements
Color options:
  • color_new_items text color when there is new items (default color_good)
  • color_error text color when there is an error (default color_bad)
Requires:
Notes:

You can also decide to check only for specific feeds or folders of feeds. To use this feature, you have to first get the IDs of those feeds or folders. You can get those IDs by clicking on the desired feed or folder and watching the URL.

For OwnCloud/NextCloud with News application: https://yourcloudinstance.com/index.php/apps/news/#/items/feeds/FEED_ID https://yourcloudinstance.com/index.php/apps/news/#/items/folders/FOLDER_ID

For Tiny Tiny RSS 1.6 or newer: https://yourttrssinstance.com/index.php#f=FEED_ID&c=0 https://yourttrssinstance.com/index.php#f=FOLDER_ID&c=1

If both feeds list and folders list are left empty, all unread feed items will be counted. You may use both feeds list and folders list, but given feeds shouldn’t be included in given folders, else unread count number behavior is unpredictable. Same warning when aggregator allows subfolders: the folders list shouldn’t include a folder and one of its subfolder.

timer

_images/timer-0.png _images/timer-1-running.png _images/timer-2-paused.png

A simple countdown timer.

This is a very basic countdown timer. You can change the timer length as well as pausing, restarting and resetting it. Currently this is more of a demo of a composite.

Each part of the timer can be changed independently hours, minutes, seconds using mouse buttons 4 and 5 (scroll wheel). Button 1 starts/pauses the countdown. Button 2 resets timer.

Configuration parameters:
  • format display format for this module (default ‘Timer {timer}’)
  • sound play sound file path when the timer ends (default None)
  • time number of seconds to start countdown with (default 60)
Format placeholders:
  • {timer} display hours:minutes:seconds

timewarrior

_images/timewarrior-0.png _images/timewarrior-1-no_tag.png _images/timewarrior-2-no_timew.png

Track your time with Timewarrior.

Timewarrior is a time tracking utility that offers simple stopwatch features as well as sophisticated calendar-base backfill, along with flexible reporting. See https://taskwarrior.org/docs/timewarrior for more information.

Configuration parameters:
  • cache_timeout refresh interval for this module, otherwise auto (default None)
  • filter specify interval and/or tag to filter (default ‘1day’)
  • format display format for this module (default ‘[Timew {format_time}]|No Timew’)
  • format_datetime specify strftime characters to format (default {})
  • format_duration display format for time duration (default ‘\?not_zero [{days}d ][{hours}:]{minutes}:{seconds}’)
  • format_tag display format for tags (default ‘\?color=state_tag {name}’)
  • format_tag_separator show separator if more than one (default ‘ ‘)
  • format_time display format for tracked times (default ‘[\?color=state_time [{format_tag} ]{format_duration}]’)
  • format_time_separator show separator if more than one (default ‘ ‘)
  • thresholds specify color thresholds to use (default {‘state_tag’: [(0, ‘darkgray’), (1, ‘darkgray’)], ‘state_time’: [(0, ‘darkgray’), (1, ‘degraded’)]})
Format placeholders:
  • {format_time} format for tracked times
  • {tracking} time tracking state, eg False, True
format_time placeholders:
  • {state} time tracking state, eg False, True
  • {format_tag} format for tags
  • {format_duration} format for time duration
  • {start} start date, eg 20171021T010203Z
  • {end} end date, eg 20171021T010203Z
format_tag placeholders:
  • {name} tag name, eg gaming, studying, gardening
format_datetime placeholders:
  • key start, end
  • value strftime characters, eg ‘%b %d’ —-> ‘Oct 06’
format_duration placeholders:
  • {days} days
  • {hours} hours
  • {minutes} minutes
  • {seconds} seconds
Color thresholds:
  • format_time state_time: print color based on the state of time tracking
  • format_tag state_tag: print color based on the state of time tracking
Requires:
  • timew feature-rich time tracking utility
Recommendations:

We can refresh a module using py3-cmd command. An excellent example of using this command in a function.

~/.{bash,zsh}{rc,_profile}
---------------------------
function timew () {
    command timew "$@" && py3-cmd refresh timewarrior
}

With this, you can consider giving cache_timeout a much larger number, eg 3600 (an hour), so the module does not need to be updated that often.

Examples:

# show times matching the filter, see documentation for more filters
timewarrior {
    filter = ':day'           # filter times not in 24 hours of current day
    filter = '12hours'        # filter times not in 12 hours of current time
    filter = '5min'           # filter times not in 5 minutes of current time
    filter = '1sec'           # filter times not in 1 second of current time
    filter = '5pm to 11:59pm  # filter times not in 5pm to 11:59pm range
}

# intervals
timewarrior {
    # if you are printing other intervals too with '1day' filter or so,
    # then you may want to add this too for better bar readability
    format_time_separator = ', '

    # you also can change the thresholds with different colors
    thresholds = {
        'state_tag': [(0, 'darkgray'), (1, 'degraded')],
        'state_time': [(0, 'darkgray'), (1, 'degraded')],
    }
}

# cache_timeout
timewarrior {
    # auto refresh every 10 seconds when there is no active time tracking
    # auto refresh every second when there is active time tracking
    cache_timeout = None

    # refresh every minute when there is no active time tracking
    # refresh every second when there is active time tracking
    cache_timeout = 60

    # explicit refresh every 20 seconds when there is no active time tracking
    # explicit refresh every 5 seconds when there is active time tracking
    cache_timeout = (20, 5)
}

# add your snippets here
timewarrior {
    format = "..."

  • thresholds Threshold for percent volume. (default [(0, ‘bad’), (20, ‘degraded’), (50, ‘good’)])
  • volume_delta Percentage amount that the volume is increased or decreased by when volume buttons pressed. (default 5)
Format placeholders:
  • {icon} Character representing the volume level, as defined by the ‘blocks’
  • {percentage} Percentage volume
Color options:
  • color_muted Volume is muted, if not supplied color_bad is used if set to None then the threshold color will be used.
Requires:
  • alsa-utils an alternative implementation of linux sound support
  • pamixer pulseaudio command-line mixer like amixer
Notes:
If you are changing volume state by external scripts etc and want to refresh the module quicker than the i3status interval, send a USR1 signal to py3status in the keybinding. Example: killall -s USR1 py3status

Examples:

# Set thresholds to rainbow colors
volume_status {
    thresholds = [
        (0, "#FF0000"),
        (10, "#E2571E"),
        (20, "#FF7F00"),
        (30, "#FFFF00"),
        (40, "#00FF00"),
        (50, "#96BF33"),
        (60, "#0000FF"),
        (70, "#4B0082"),
        (80, "#8B00FF"),
        (90, "#FFFFFF")
    ]

weather_owm

_images/weather_owm-0.png _images/weather_owm-1-diff.png

Display ultimately customizable weather.

This module allows you to specify an icon for nearly every weather scenario imaginable. The default configuration options lump many of the icons into a few groups, and due to the limitations of UTF-8, this is really as expressive as it gets.

This module uses OpenWeatherMap API (https://openweathermap.org).

setting location or city allows you to specify the location for the weather you want displaying.

Requires an API key for OpenWeatherMap (OWM), but the free tier allows you enough requests/sec to get accurate weather even up to the minute.

I would highly suggest you install an additional font, such as the incredible (and free!) Weather Icons font (https://erikflowers.github.io/weather-icons), which has icons for most weather scenarios. But, this will still work with the i3bar default font, Deja Vu Sans Mono font, which has Unicode support. You can see the (limited) weather icon support within Unicode in the defaults.

For more information, see the documentation (https://openweathermap.org/weather-conditions) on what weather conditions are supported. See the configuration options for how to specify each weather icon.

Configuration parameters:
  • api_key Your OpenWeatherMap API key See https://openweathermap.org/appid. Required! (default None)
  • cache_timeout The time between API polling in seconds It is recommended to keep this at a higher value to avoid rate limiting with the API’s. (default 1800)
  • city The city to display for location information. If set, implicitly disables the Geo API for determining city name. (default None)
  • country The country to display for location information. If set, implicitly disables the Geo API for determining country name. (default None)
  • forecast_days Number of days to include in the forecast, including today (regardless of the ‘forecast_include_today’ flag) (default 3)
  • forecast_include_today Include today in the forecast? (Boolean) (default False)
  • forecast_text_separator Separator between entries in the forecast (default ‘ ‘)
  • format How to display the weather This also dictates the type of forecast. The placeholders here refer to the format_[…] variables found below. Available placeholders: icon, city, clouds, rain, snow, wind, humidity, pressure, temperature, sunrise, sunset, main, description, forecast (default ‘{city} {icon} {temperature}[ {rain}], {description} {forecast}’)
  • format_clouds Formatting for cloud coverage (percentage) Available placeholders: icon, coverage (default ‘{icon} {coverage}%’)
  • format_forecast Formatting for future forecasts Available placeholders: See ‘format’ This is similar to the ‘format’ field, but contains information for future weather. Notably, this does not include information about sunrise or sunset times. (default ‘{icon}’)
  • format_humidity Formatting for humidity (percentage) Available placeholders: icon, humidity (default ‘{icon} {humidity}%’)
  • format_pressure Formatting for atmospheric pressure Available placeholders: icon, pressure, sea_level (default ‘{icon} {pressure} hPa’)
  • format_rain Formatting for rain volume over the past 3 hours Available placeholders: icon, amount (default ‘[\?if=amount {icon} {amount:.0f} {unit}]’)
  • format_snow Formatting for snow volume over the past 3 hours Available placeholders: icon, amount (default ‘[\?if=amount {icon} {amount:.0f} {unit}]’)
  • format_sunrise Formatting for sunrise time Note that this format accepts strftime/strptime placeholders to populate the output with the time information. Available placeholders: icon (default ‘{icon} %-I:%M %p’)
  • format_sunset Formatting for sunset time This format accepts strftime/strptime placeholders to populate the output with the time information. Available placeholders: icon (default ‘{icon} %-I:%M %p’)
  • format_temperature Formatting for temperature Available placeholders: current, icon, max, min (default ‘{icon} [\?color=all {current:.0f}°{unit}]’)
  • format_wind Formatting for wind degree and speed The ‘gust’ option represents the speed of wind gusts in the wind unit. Available placeholders: icon, degree, speed, gust (default ‘[\?if=speed {icon} {speed:.0f} {unit}]’)
  • icon_atmosphere Icon for atmospheric conditions, like fog, smog, etc. (default ‘🌫’)
  • icon_cloud Icon for clouds (default ‘☁’)
  • icon_extreme Icon for extreme weather (default ‘⚠’)
  • icon_humidity Icon for humidity (default ‘●’)
  • icon_pressure Icon for pressure (default ‘◌’)
  • icon_rain Icon for rain (default ‘🌧’)
  • icon_snow Icon for snow (default ‘❄’)
  • icon_sun Icon for sunshine (default ‘☼’)
  • icon_sunrise Icon for sunrise (default ‘⇑’)
  • icon_sunset Icon for sunset (default ‘⇓’)
  • icon_temperature Icon for temperature (default ‘○’)
  • icon_thunderstorm Icon for thunderstorms (default ‘⛈’)
  • icon_wind Icon for wind or breeze (default ‘☴’)
  • icons A dictionary relating weather code to icon See https://openweathermap.org/weather-conditions for a complete list of supported icons. This will fall-back to the listed icon if there is no specific icon present. However, options included here take precedent over the above ‘icon_{…}’ options. There are multiple ways to specify individual icons based on the id: * Use the key ‘601’ to reference the condition with id = 601 (snow) * Use the key ‘230_232’ to reference a span of conditions inclusive, in this case conditions (230, 231, 232) (thunderstorm with drizzle) (default None)
  • lang An ISO 639-1 code for your language (two letters) (default ‘en’)
  • location A tuple of floats describing the desired weather location The tuple should follow the form (latitude, longitude), and if set, implicitly disables the Geo API for determining location. (default None)
  • thresholds Configure temperature colors based on limits The numbers specified inherit the unit of the temperature as configured. The default below is intended for Fahrenheit. If the set value is empty or None, the feature is disabled. You can specify this parameter using a dictionary: * Keys are names. You have the option of ‘current’, ‘min’, ‘max’, or ‘all’ to specify a threshold. The first three are tied to the various temperature values, the last sets the same threshold for all outputs. If both ‘all’ and one of the first three are set (lets say ‘min’ for this example), the threshold will default to be the value in ‘min’, not ‘all’. This goes for any configuration * The values are lists of pairs, with temperature (in the configured unit) as the first and the color as the second * To use the thresholds color, place ‘\?color=all’ in the formatting string for temperature, replacing ‘all’ with any of the valid threshold names for different coloring effects * To have smooth transitions between colors, consider setting the ‘gradients’ configuration parameter to ‘True’, either in the global configuration, or in the module configuration! (default {‘all’: [(-100, ‘#0FF’), (0, ‘#00F’), (50, ‘#0F0’), (150, ‘#FF0’)]})
  • unit_rain Unit for rain fall When specified, a unit may be any combination of upper and lower case, such as ‘Ft’, and still be considered valid as long as it is in the below options. Options: cm, ft, in, mm, m, yd (default ‘in’)
  • unit_snow Unit for snow fall Options: cm, ft, in, mm, m, yd (default ‘in’)
  • unit_temperature Unit for temperature Options: c, f, k (default ‘F’)
  • unit_wind Unit for wind speed Options: fsec, msec, mph, kmh (default ‘mph’)

  • {icon} The icon associated with a formatting section
  • format_clouds
  • {coverage} Cloud coverage percentage

xrandr

_images/xrandr-0.png _images/xrandr-1-mirror.png _images/xrandr-2-single_1.png _images/xrandr-3-single_2.png

Control screen layout.

This modules allows you to handle your screens outputs directly from your bar!
  • Detect and propose every possible screen combinations
  • Switch between combinations using click events and mouse scroll
  • Activate the screen or screen combination on a single click
  • It will detect any newly connected or removed screen automatically
For convenience, this module also proposes some added features:
  • Dynamic parameters for POSITION and WORKSPACES assignment (see below)
  • Automatic fallback to a given screen or screen combination when no more screen is available (handy for laptops)
  • Automatically apply this screen combination on start: no need for xorg!
  • Automatically move workspaces to screens when they are available
  • Define your own subset of output combinations to use
Configuration parameters:
  • cache_timeout how often to (re)detect the outputs (default 10)

  • command a custom command to be run after display configuration changes (default None)

  • fallback when the current output layout is not available anymore, fallback to this layout if available. This is very handy if you have a laptop and switched to an external screen for presentation and want to automatically fallback to your laptop screen when you disconnect the external screen. (default True)

  • fixed_width show output as fixed width (default True)

  • force_on_change switch display layout to the leftmost combination mode of the given list whenever it is available. The combination modes are checked from left (high priority) to right (less priority) until one matches. Example: We have a laptop with internal screen and we are often moving from our desk where another screen is available. We want the layout to follow our changes so that we do not have to switch manually. So whenever we plug at our desk, we want the second monitor to be used, and whenever we go away we want everything back on the laptop screen automatically:

    force_on_change = ["eDP1+DP1", "eDP1"]
    

    NOTES: Click controls will override force_on_change until the layout changes in the background so you can still manually control your layout changes on the bar. Use the force_on_start to handle initial layout setup on module startup along with this feature to benefit from fully dynamic and automated changes of screen layouts. (default [])

  • force_on_start switch to the given combination mode if available when the module starts (saves you from having to configure xorg) (default None)

  • format display format for xrandr (default ‘{output}’)

  • hide_if_single_combination hide if only one combination is available (default False)

  • icon_clone icon used to display a ‘clone’ combination (default ‘=’)

  • icon_extend icon used to display a ‘extend’ combination (default ‘+’)

  • on_udev_drm dynamic variable to watch for drm udev subsystem events to trigger specified action. (default ‘refresh_and_freeze’)

  • output_combinations string used to define your own subset of output combinations to use, instead of generating every possible combination automatically. Provide the values in the format that this module uses, splitting the combinations using ‘|’ character. The combinations will be rotated in the exact order as you listed them. When an output layout is not available any more, the configurations are automatically filtered out. Example: Assuming the default values for icon_clone and icon_extend are used, and assuming you have two screens ‘eDP1’ and ‘DP1’, the following setup will reduce the number of output combinations from four (every possible one) down to two.

    output_combinations = "eDP1|eDP1+DP1"
    

    (default None)

Dynamic configuration parameters:
  • <OUTPUT>_icon use this icon instead of OUTPUT name as text Example: DP1_icon = “🖵”
  • <OUTPUT>_pos apply the given position to the OUTPUT Example: DP1_pos = “-2560x0” Example: DP1_pos = “above eDP1” Example: DP1_pos = “below eDP1” Example: DP1_pos = “left-of LVDS1” Example: DP1_pos = “right-of eDP1”
  • <OUTPUT>_workspaces comma separated list of workspaces to move to the given OUTPUT when it is activated Example: DP1_workspaces = “1,2,3”
  • <OUTPUT>_rotate rotate the output as told Example: DP1_rotate = “left”
  • <OUTPUT>_mode define the mode (resolution) for the output if not specified use –auto : prefered mode Example: eDP1_mode = “2560x1440
  • <OUTPUT>_primary apply the primary to the OUTPUT Example: DP1_primary = True
Format placeholders:
  • {output} xrandr output
Color options:
  • color_bad Displayed layout unavailable
  • color_degraded Using a fallback layout
  • color_good Displayed layout active
Notes:

Some days are just bad days. Running xrandr --query command can cause unexplainable brief screen freezes due to an overall combination of computer hardware, installed software, your choice of linux distribution, and/or some other unknown factors such as recent system updates.

Configuring cache_timeout with a different number, eg 3600 (an hour) or -1 (runs once) can be used to remedy this issue. See issue #580.

Examples:

# start with a preferable setup
xrandr {
    force_on_start = "eDP1+DP1"
    DP1_pos = "left-of eDP1"
    VGA_workspaces = "7"
}
