Subject: ANNOUNCE: taffybar: an alternative status bar for xmonad
Date: Saturday 13th August 2011 15:56:49 UTC (over 5 years ago)
I've wanted a slightly fancier status bar than xmobar for a while, so I finally made one. It uses gtk2hs and dbus extensively, so if you hate either of those things it probably isn't for you. Being written in gtk, though, it can have more graphical widgets. http://hackage.haskell.org/package/taffybar Current feature highlights: * It has a system tray * Generic graph widget for things like CPU/memory * XMonad log over DBus so it can be restarted independently of xmonad * Graphical battery widget There is still a lot that I want to add but I figured getting some feedback early would be handy. Documentation is currently at http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~travitch/taffybar until I figure out how to appease Hackage (see the System.Taffybar module).
