SomeBar

Simple taskbar indicator for Unity inspired by AnyBar (basically it is a clone of AnyBar)

Tested on Ubuntu 20.20

Install

pip3 install somebar

Usage

to run somebar just execute in console

somebar

somebar is controlled via UDP port (1738 by default). Send it a message and it will change a color:

echo -n "black" | nc -4u -w0 localhost 1738

Following commands change color:

white red orange yellow green cyan blue purple black question exclamation

And one special command forces somebar to quit: quit

Running multiple instances

You can run several instances of somebar as long as they listen on different ports. Use -p or --port command line argument to change port:

somebar -p 1738
somebar -p 1739
somebar -p 1740

Custom images

somebar can use user-local images if you put them under ~/.somebar or ~/.AnyBar. E.g. if you have ~/.AnyBar/square@2x.png present, send square to 1738 and it will be displayed.
