Kept it simple, more of a test and proof of operation.

Don't tell me your not surprised. I fixed my battery driven prompt. Why not also battery driven window borders. Better yet, why not pulsing battery driven window borders!

Apologize for the slow, boring webm. I happened to be right at the point of color change so took full advantage to do a quick webm. The change happens immediately for me, wierd the delay on the webm. Colors look a bit off too, but either way, it gets the point across.

Love the idea and practicality, instead of adding more make what you have do more. +

that is a pretty novel idea drew, cool. i dont think my battery charge would ever be that important to me, and the pulsing would drive me insane in seconds, but i suppose this is all experimentation for you?

I actually kind of like the pulsing. Didn't expect too, but I do. But totally, yes, experimenting and implementing an idea! That's the fun! It was actually more difficult than it should have been to get the prompt working properly. Not the colors, but the escaping and stuff.

But don't fret, you don't like pulsing, I also created bbdr, which makes active border color based on battery state/level. No pulsing, Just standard active color.

I think I covered all angles!

just wanted to understand what you were doing - indeed i applaud your experiments enthusiastically. you are coming up with novel ideas and are clearly having fun, which is, as you well know, the most important part :)

Thank you brother, for sure! And as my wm-utils buddy Chef so eloquently put it

i find this whole wmutils thing you guys got going really intriguing. who knows, perhaps i will use all my current free time to try something like that as well.

Making a quick scratchpad using wmutils: http://raw.z3bra.org/dev/random/scratchpad.webm
I love when people ask me things like "can you do <X> with wmutils?". It always end up with a nice script and webm!

This looks pretty cool! You used the tile.sh script at the end, right?

There are so many creative ways to use dmenu! I've been using it to extract/open url in my terminal:
