@copycat-killer Didn't really get the idea... Maybe I should read more manuals... Thanks anyway.

Look at

You can grab the timer as a second argument, and use it from your keybinding functions.

However it seems that the official can only update itself automatically after the timeout. And with I often use watch.update with a shortcut key to update the widget manually, which the official one doesn't seem to have. So I think the is still more useful than the official one...

Use case examples from former wiki entry have been ported here:

A couple of consistency changes:

1. lain.widgets renamed to lain.widget
2. lain.widget.abase renamed to

@dummys I have no problem here doing

$ git clone # when you start using it

In case, do

$ rm lain-git/lain* -r

before every update.

There is a typo on line 22:

You're missing the ending space before the ending bracket so the test expression doesn't get evaluated properly: [ -d "/usr/share/awesome/lib/" ]

Also on line 29:

You're missing the "t" at the end: --quiet
