  • trayer-srg

    trayer fork with multi monitor support, cleaned up codebase and other fancy stuff

    I used to use trayer on X11, there's this fork but can't say for sure it works on Wayland. Maybe another hack it to config yambar for all the modules you want to use, leave room to use only the tray module for waybar on your screen. And have them both startup on loading your windows manager.

  • gtk-sni-tray

    A StatusNotifierHost widget written using the gtk+3 bindings for haskell provided by gi-gtk.

    You could try this one: https://github.com/taffybar/gtk-sni-tray

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • Waybar

    Highly customizable Wayland bar for Sway and Wlroots based compositors. :v: :tada:

    I have the same issue and dropped waybar due to unresolved bugginess when using the cursor follows focus option https://github.com/Alexays/Waybar/issues/1047. I switched to use Yambar because I like the philosophy behind dnkls programs but it lacks a sys tray for understandable reasons
