Show Us Your Polybar

I also think that someone asked in the forum how this was done

I hear ya - when I used Ubu, I tried the hiding the bar. As you said, it became more of a PITA then a benefit.

@Negata, you are right there is a post floating around somewhere here.

@Chris, yup, hence my move to a slim styled polybar.

I tried something similar, but it was with a combination of keys, let’s call it manualhide.

After some adjustments like borders and height, Slim-polybar looks perfect on my screen. I like to adjust the colors and balance them with the same ones of the wallpaper. Thanks again @Dobbie03!!

i need help to chose theme using polybar pls

The config files are here; you only need config, master, and modules. Place them in ~/.config/polybar and edit them you fit you system.

Some changes. I’ve added the binary clock to polybar that appears in dwmX (here a scrot). Also with jgmenu and workspaces

This is the script binclock.py

#!/bin/python3

'''
binclock
binclock outputs the current time in binary clock format using unicode braille
characters.
Created Aug 2015 by cbarox
'''

import datetime

_BRAILLE_ZERO = 0x2800

# maps bit to the value for braille
_BRAILLE_MAP1 = [0x40, 0x04, 0x02, 0x01]
_BRAILLE_MAP2 = [0x80, 0x20, 0x10, 0x08]

# converts a 2 digit number to binary clock form 
def num2clock(num):
    d1, d2 = int(num / 10), int(num % 10)
    brl = _BRAILLE_ZERO
    for i in range(4):
        if (d1 & (2**i)):
            brl |= _BRAILLE_MAP1[i]
        if (d2 & (2**i)):
            brl |= _BRAILLE_MAP2[i]
    return brl

result = ""
now = datetime.datetime.now()
t = [now.hour, now.minute, now.second]
for i in t:
    result += chr(num2clock(i))
print(result)

And I’ve added this module:


[module/binclock]
type = custom/script
exec = python /home/user/bin/binclock.py
label-foreground = #08df70
label-padding = 1
format = <label>

Thanks. I took the base of https://github.com/jaagr/dots/tree/master/.local/etc/themer/themes/space and some of the default ArchLabs polybar to make it. Not quite as minimal as some of your bars, but I like it.
