Xmobar update on keypress and hiding windows
1 project | reddit.com/r/xmonad | 10 Jul 2022
Updating statusbar modules(like brightness or volume) only on keypress instead of timeout. Didn't find much about this for xmobar. Looked into Github issue but didn't understand exactly how to implement it

Strange colons in XMobar
2 projects | reddit.com/r/xmonad | 3 Feb 2022
Strange. I probably won't have time to look into this today, but I will look into it this weekend if it's still happening. The lead maintainer is nice and responsive. Feel free to make an issue at https://github.com/jaor/xmobar.

Issue with writeShellScriptBin and writeScriptBin

Code: `` trayer-padding-icon = pkgs.writeScriptBin "trayer-padding-icon.sh" '' #!/bin/sh # Copied from https://github.com/jaor/xmobar/issues/239#issuecomment-233206552 # Detects the width of running trayer-srg window (xprop name 'panel') # and creates an XPM icon of that width, 1px height, and transparent. # Outputs an -tag for use in xmobar to display the generated # XPM icon. # # Run script from xmobar: #Run Com "/where/ever/trayer-padding-icon.sh"  "trayerpad" 10 # and use%trayerpad%` in your template.
?trayer padding in haskell
1 project | reddit.com/r/xmonad | 25 Oct 2021
That's a bit unfortunate, but I think adding something like to xmobar's format would be a good idea. You might want to mention that as an alternative in https://github.com/jaor/xmobar/issues/583 so jaor has the full picture and can let us know what he thinks about it all. Perhaps just link to this discussion.
Stalonetray dynamically sizing xmobar
1 project | reddit.com/r/xmonad | 14 Oct 2021
I followed 4.1.2 Dynamically sizing xmobar in xmobar.org and it works with 1 monitor, but with 2 monitors the tray is in the wrong place
How to build an xmobar config from from a haskell source file?
I can't build the project. configure: error: X11 libraries not found, so X11 package cannot be built Ok, so I went to xmobar's repo and installed all their stack.yaml dependencies via nix and X11 still fails to build.
I've always just used the plain textfile option for configuring xmobar. This works out of the box with nixos, but now I want to use a haskell source file like shown here and import arbitrary haskell libraries.
The ah-xmobar built by NixOS doesn't display. I'm now reasonably convinced that the xmobar library provided by nixpkgs was not compiled with the necessary flags to support my config. Reason being that: - Compiled ah-xmobar using NixOS pre-compiled xmobar library doesn't work with xmobar's example hs config. - Compiled ah-xmobar using NixOS pre-compiled xmobar library works with a config that uses commands =  and template = "%uname%". - Compiled ah-xmobar using custom compiled xmobar library with the +all_extensions flag works for any configuration.
