    Other than what was already mentioned. iGlance, tidiemme/monitorbar, or you could "build" something very custom with bitbar (now - but there are probably already plugins for that for xbar.

    I see XBar seems to be more advanced and more popular.

    It has these Advanced APIs like URL schema -

    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).
