Put the output from any script or program into your macOS Menu Bar (the BitBar reboot)
Just updated from BitBar and ran into a small issue since xbar doesn't support custom plugin folders the same way BitBar did (as in a way to change it via the GUI). Thankfully you can just symlink the plugin folder to your old BitBar folder and everything works as expected. I opened an issue for it here: https://github.com/matryer/xbar/issues/653
Powerful macOS menu bar customization tool
I was wondering about why SwiftBar existed when there was already BitBar, and a lot is explained in this thread on Github: https://github.com/swiftbar/SwiftBar/issues/95
TL;DR: BitBar stopped working well in Big Sur and the old code base was increasingly hard to update and build.

I've been discovering more and more high quality open source apps for Mac recently. My other favorites so far:
Display output of scripts in the macOS status bar
I've been using barbly which I wrote to scratch my own itch. It uses a JSON format for describing the menu bars which I found easier to work with. It's aesthetic is slightly different as well.
Mac app to display JSON data in menu bar?
