Hey guys, i noticed links in PKGBUILD were not working so i found sources on google code and copied them to github.
I also fixed PKGBUILD a little so its more like in Arch packaging standards. Also, it builds now.

Let me know if everything is okay since its first package im maintaining on AUR and i currently have no clue what im doing.

Tested under Awesome 3.5 here: Loads fine, test widget works.

libgradev commented on 2013-01-07 15:24

Believe this is compatible with stable again now ( "Note: Bashets is compatible with awesome 3.5 and greater.")

fixed access rights for scripts in /usr/share/awesome/bashets/, now they are executable by default :)

Added Lua 5.2 compatibility, but tested only on Lua 5.1. If you experience any problems, please tell here or via email.

Also in this version I've fixed Pango markup issue: entities were not encoded properly every time.

Again added awesome-git instead of awesome to dependencies.

If anyone cares to help with stable version, please fix util.get_widget_meta() function to work with old-fashion widgets and email me a patch.

I've added backwards compatibility fixes.
It should now work with stable awesome.

If not - please report here, I shall fix it.

0.6 is here with initial support for dbus

to try dbus stuff, simply add the following line to your rc.lua for any widget you like:
bashets.register("org.freedesktop.UDisks", {dbus = true, busname = "system", format = "$3", widget = yourwidget})

if you add or remove device, you'll see corresponding udisks event name on your widget

p.s.: yes, the first issue will be fixed in bashets 0.6, but I also plan to add one new feature to that release, so it should come a bit later

Two tips I found today when I looked for why my keyboard indicator stopped working:
1) remove killall line from start() function in bashets.lua; sometimes it kills new instances created by subsequent launch of updater script
2) add bashets.stop() to your awesome finalization code, otherwise it will flood your terminal with a lot of warnings due to the fact that awesome is dead but updater script still sends requests through dbus (yes, it is know issue for xmonad/dzen users, too;)

Thank you!

Hello, msx. Bashets is complatible with latest stable 3.4.9 which was released today. :)

To use bashets with ealier versions of awesome, you need to replace connect_signal with add_signal, and also you need to replace some widget update code, since some widgets underwent changes during past time.
Also you are able to find a suitable earlier commit on gitorious for < 3.4.9. :)

1) bug fixed: update time setting did not really affect updates,
2) added support for external updates on the script side through dbus (external = true in options)

Anonymous comment on 2010-11-04 10:00

updated for recent changes in widgets logic

Anonymous comment on 2010-09-04 08:44

small fix for connect_signal instead of add_signal

0.4 with callbacks and _syntax changes_. See wiki for details:

It seems that 0.3.2 requires awesome-git.

Anonymous comment on 2010-06-16 16:11
