slstatus - suckless status

slstatus is a suckless status monitor for window managers that use WM_NAME (e.g. dwm) or stdin to fill the status bar. Forked with my improvements.


  • Battery percentage/state/time left
  • CPU usage
  • CPU frequency
  • Custom shell commands
  • Date and time
  • Disk status (free storage, percentage, total storage and used storage)
  • Available entropy
  • Username/GID/UID
  • Hostname
  • IP address (IPv4 and IPv6)
  • Kernel version
  • Keyboard indicators
  • Keymap
  • Load average
  • Network speeds (RX and TX)
  • Number of files in a directory (hint: Maildir)
  • Memory status (free memory, percentage, total memory and used memory)
  • Swap status (free swap, percentage, total swap and used swap)
  • Temperature
  • Uptime
  • Volume percentage
  • WiFi signal percentage and ESSID

Configured to display RAM percentage, CPU percentage and the date in ISO8601 by default.


Currently slstatus works on FreeBSD, Linux and OpenBSD. In order to build slstatus you need the Xlib header files.

For volume percentage on Linux the kernel module snd-mixer-oss must be loaded.


Edit config.mk to match your local setup (slstatus is installed into the /usr/local namespace by default).

Afterwards enter the following command to build and install slstatus (if necessary as root):

make clean install
