SYNOPSIS

xpywm

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents xpymon, a minimal but versatile system monitor on Linux. xpymon is designed to work with xpywm, a simple but extensible X11 window manager written in Python (https://pypi.org/project/xpywm/). However, xpymon can be used independently and be combined with other window managers.

xpymon consumes the minimum amount of the desktop; i.e., the height of the statsu monitor window is just eight pixels.

OPTIONS

  • -T

    Run in test mode.

CUSTOMIZATION

On startup, xpymon loads per-user RC script (~/.xpymonrc) if it exists. The RC script is any valid Python script. You can change the behavior of xpymon using the RC file.

An example ~/.xpymonrc file is as follows.

# blink status monitor when the remaining battery capacity is less than 10%
global BATTERY_WARN_THRESH
BATTERY_WARN_THRESH = .1

REQUIREMENTS

The implementation of xpymon heavily depends on the Linux kernel (/proc and /sys pseudo filesystems) and its standard utilities such as ip (iproute2), ifconfig (net-tools), and iwconfig (wireless-tools).

INSTALLATION

$ sudo apt install iproute2 net-tools wireless-tools 
$ pip3 install xpymon

AVAILABILITY

The latest version of xpymon is available at PyPI (https://pypi.org/project/xpymon/) .
