NAME

       i3bar - xcb-based status- and workspace-bar

SYNOPSIS

       i3bar [-s sock_path] [-b bar_id] [-v] [-h]

WARNING

       i3bar will automatically be invoked by i3 for every bar configuration block.

       Starting it manually is usually not what you want to do.

       You have been warned!

OPTIONS

       -s, --socket sock_path
           Overwrites the path to the i3 IPC socket.

       -b, --bar_id bar_id
           Specifies the bar ID for which to get the configuration from i3.

       -v, --version
           Display version number and exit.

       -h, --help
           Display a short help-message and exit

DESCRIPTION

       i3bar displays a bar at the bottom (or top) of your monitor(s) containing workspace
       switching buttons and a statusline generated by i3status(1) or similar. It is
       automatically invoked (and configured through) i3.

       i3bar supports colors via a JSON protocol starting from v4.2, see
       https://i3wm.org/docs/i3bar-protocol.html

ENVIRONMENT

   I3SOCK
       Used as a fallback for the i3 IPC socket path if neither the commandline contains an
       argument nor the I3_SOCKET_PATH property is set on the X11 root window.

EXAMPLES

       Nothing to see here, move along. As stated above, you should not run i3bar manually.

       Instead, see the i3 documentation, especially the User’s Guide.

SEE ALSO

       i3status(1), j4status(1) or conky(1) for programs generating a statusline.

       dzen2(1) or xmobar(1) for similar programs to i3bar.
