xmobar - A configurable and extensible status bar for X11 desktops




xmobar is a minimalistic, text based, status bar. It was originally designed and
implemented by Andrea Rossato to work with xmonad, but it's actually usable with any

xmobar was inspired by the Ion3 (http://tuomov.iki.fi/software/) status bar, and supports
similar features, like dynamic color management, output templates, and extensibility
through plugins.

This page documents xmobar 0.16.


xmobar can be either configured with a configuration file or with command line options. In
the second case, the command line options will overwrite the corresponding options set in
the configuration file.

The configuration file is searched for in the following locations, in order:

$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/xmobar/xmobarrc (default: ~/.config/xmobar/xmobarrc)

The first configuration file found will be used. See /usr/share/doc/xmobar/examples for
sample configuration files.


xmobar -B white -a right -F blue -t '%LIPB%' -c '[Run Weather "LIPB" [] 36000]'
