Project Description

# clockr
[![Build Status](](

clockr is a collaborative effort at a simple curses clock written in Python 3.

[Video by Yu-Jie Lin](

* A harsh critique, but the video nicely shows clockr.

# Screenshot

# Installation
* Arch Linux: clockr in the AUR
* pip: clockr

For manual installation, clone the repository, cd into it and run
# python install

# Options

usage: clockr [−h] [−V] [−c COLOR] [−d DATEFORMAT] [−n] [−t]

**optional arguments:
−h**, **−−help**

show this help message and exit

**−V**, **−v**, **−−version**

show program’s version number and exit

**−c** COLOR, **−−color** COLOR

changes color of the clock.

**−d** DATEFORMAT, **−−dateformat** DATEFORMAT

changes the format in which the date is printed, see ’man date’ for support on formats. Not to be combined with the ’−−nodate’−argument.

**−n**, **−−nodate**

**−t**, **−−twentyfourhours**

prints the time in 24−hour format

# Examples

**clockr −−nodate −−twentyfourhours −−color** _white_

Will display a white-colored 24-hour clock while omitting the date.

The different colors avaialable are,

_white red green yellow blue magenta cyan orange_

And you can also use _random_ to chose a random color.

Q: Can you add [feature]? When will [bug] be fixed?

A: This project is completely run by volunteers and will most likely never be 100% bug-free as developers are humans too. You can help out yourself, though, by submitting a bug report!
