Awesome WM Theme - Project by John Wiseman

Awesome WM Theme
Linux Front-end desktop which displays custom information to the user and provides custom control

What is it?

I created a theme for AwesomeWM (Awesome Window Manager) which is a linux desktop display. This theme allows me to easily control the computer for an advanced and performant result.

I wrote scripts which would output a display on my desktop. Some of the scripts that I wrote were:

  • List and display my Google calendar events for the next two weeks
  • Fetch and display the status of my git repositories, allowing me to see if I have updates to pull
  • Times and dates counting down to events I have set.
