i3pystatus is a large collection of status modules compatible with i3bar from the i3 window manager.

:License: MIT :Python: 3.6+ :Governance: Patches that don't break the build (Travis or docs) are generally just merged. This is a "do-it-yourself" project, so to speak. :Releases: No further releases are planned. Install it from Git.


Supported Python versions i3pystatus requires Python 3.6 or newer and is not compatible with Python 2.x. Some modules require additional dependencies documented in the docs.


pip3 install git+


All further user documentation has been moved here. <>_

The changelog for old releases can be found here. <>_


A list of all contributors can be found in CONTRIBUTORS <>_, but git likely has more up-to-date information. i3pystatus was initially written by Jan Oliver Oelerich and later ported to Python 3 and mostly rewritten by enkore.


To contribute a module, make sure it uses one of the Module classes. Most modules use IntervalModule, which just calls a function repeatedly in a specified interval.

The output attribute should be set to a dictionary which represents your modules output, the protocol is documented here <>_.

Developer documentation is available in the source code and here <>_.

Patches and pull requests are very welcome :-)
