## Install

`sh pip3 install somebar `

## Usage

to run somebar just execute in console `sh somebar `

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

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

Following commands change color:

<img src=”somebar_icons/white@2x.png?raw=true” width=19 /> white <img src=”somebar_icons/red@2x.png?raw=true” width=19 /> red <img src=”somebar_icons/orange@2x.png?raw=true” width=19 /> orange <img src=”somebar_icons/yellow@2x.png?raw=true” width=19 /> yellow <img src=”somebar_icons/green@2x.png?raw=true” width=19 /> green <img src=”somebar_icons/cyan@2x.png?raw=true” width=19 /> cyan <img src=”somebar_icons/blue@2x.png?raw=true” width=19 /> blue <img src=”somebar_icons/purple@2x.png?raw=true” width=19 /> purple <img src=”somebar_icons/black@2x.png?raw=true” width=19 /> black <img src=”somebar_icons/question@2x.png?raw=true” width=19 /> question <img src=”somebar_icons/exclamation@2x.png?raw=true” width=19 /> 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:

`sh 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.
