slstatus - suckless status
slstatus is a small tool for providing system status information to other
programs over the EWMH property of the root window (used by dwm(1)) or
standard input/output. It is designed to be as efficient as possible by
only issuing the minimum of system calls required.

- Battery percentage/state/time left
- Cat (read file)
- CPU usage
- CPU frequency
- Custom shell commands
- Date and time
- Disk status (free storage, percentage, total storage and used storage)
- Available entropy
- Username/GID/UID
- Hostname
- IP address (IPv4 and IPv6)
- Kernel version
- Keyboard indicators
- Keymap
- Load average
- Network speeds (RX and TX)
- Number of files in a directory (hint: Maildir)
- Memory status (free memory, percentage, total memory and used memory)
- Swap status (free swap, percentage, total swap and used swap)
- Temperature
- Uptime
- Volume percentage
- WiFi signal percentage and ESSID

Currently slstatus works on FreeBSD, Linux and OpenBSD.
In order to build slstatus you need the Xlib header files.

- For volume percentage on Linux the kernel module `snd-mixer-oss` must be
- For volume percentage on FreeBSD, `sndio` must be installed.

Edit to match your local setup (slstatus is installed into the
/usr/local namespace by default).

Afterwards enter the following command to build and install slstatus (if
necessary as root):

    make clean install

Running slstatus
See the man page for details.

slstatus can be customized by creating a custom config.h and (re)compiling the
source code. This keeps it fast, secure and simple.

A first feature-complete release with official packages for common distributions
will come soon.
