waybar for x86_64

waybar would make wlroots-based window managers easier to use and customize.

I have created an appimage of waybar. It is working well with labwc. I need to test it with weston then I'll submit it for the x86_64 repo.

Thank you. That would be a cleaner solution because the appimage, while it works, is a Frankenstein's monster. I won't submit this ugly thing and look forward to using your extension.

Would you like me to submit extensions for the two fonts (awesome font and nerd font) that waybar uses for special symbols?

BTW I noticed that waybar needs the tzdata extension to correctly show a clock, even if timezone is set correctly with a boot code.

waybar (and jsoncpp25 and glibmm) posted - not tested

Note that upower support was disabled and libnl support hacked - several obscure apps were built and compiled in statically.

Hi Juanito. Thank you for this. The extension is tested and working in TCL14 x86_64 running labwc.

The only issue is that special symbols on the bar appear as tofus. Problem is solved by loading the fonts that have the necesary symbols (awesome-font and nerd-font). I submitted the two fonts as extensions--please post and add them to waybar.tcz.dep at your convenience :)

When a character is not present in a font, and no fallback option is available, the missing character is replaced with a symbol that has come to be known as “tofu” due to its resemblance to a block of tofu.

waybar recompiled and reposted
