py3status v3.17

I’m glad to announce a new (awaited) release of py3status featuring support for the sway window manager which allows py3status to enter the wayland environment!

Updated configuration and custom modules paths detection

The configuration section of the documentation explains the updated detection of the py3status configuration file (with respect of XDG_CONFIG environment variables):

  • ~/.config/py3status/config
  • ~/.config/i3status/config
  • ~/.config/i3/i3status.conf
  • ~/.i3status.conf
  • ~/.i3/i3status.conf
  • /etc/xdg/i3status/config
  • /etc/i3status.conf

Regarding custom modules paths detection, py3status does as described in the documentation:

  • ~/.config/py3status/modules
  • ~/.config/i3status/py3status
  • ~/.config/i3/py3status
  • ~/.i3/py3status

Highlights

Lots of modules improvements and clean ups, see changelog.

  • we worked on the documentation sections and content which allowed us to fix a bunch of typos
  • our magic @lasers have worked a lot on harmonizing thresholds on modules along with a lot of code clean ups
  • new module: scroll to scroll modules on your bar (#1748)
  • @lasers has worked a lot on a more granular pango support for modules output (still work to do as it breaks some composites)
