A custom macOS statusbar with shell plugin, interaction and graph support



This is a rewrite of the spacebar project, which itself is a rewrite of the statusbar code from yabai.


  • As many widgets as you like at any of the three positions: left, center, right
  • The order of the widgets in the sketchybarrc file will be the order in which they show in the bar
  • Associate widgets to certain displays or spaces, to show specific information on the relevant screens/displays
  • The widgets are highly customizable with settings for different fonts, colors, icon paddings, label paddings, etc. for each individual element
  • Draw arbitrary graphs in the bar with external data provider scripts that push the data into the graph
  • Overlay as many graphs as wanted, like system cpu usage and user cpu usage in one figure
  • Individual refresh frequencies for each widget
  • Let items subscribe to system events (e.g. space changed, etc.) for their refresh action
  • Create custom events and trigger them externaly
  • "click" events for the widgets, where a script can be specified to run on a mouse click
  • Cache the scripts in RAM to reduce I/O operations
  • Performance friendly


This bar project aims to create a highly flexible, customizable and fast statusbar for users that like playing around with shell scripts and want to make their statusbar show exactly the information they need for their workflow.

The configuration of the bar takes place in a confiuration file where almost everything can be configured. Bascially, the bar itself is a rectangle that can hold arbitrarily many items and components, which can be configured to do awesome stuff. An item will occupy a space in the bar and can be equipped to show an icon and a label. The icon and label can be changed through scripts that can be attached to the item. It is also possible to subscribe and item to certain events for their script execution action, which makes very powerful items possible. Additionally, an item can be assigned a click_script, which executes on a mouse click. Furthermore, an item can be assigned to mission control spaces or displays, such that they only show on a certain space or display, which makes multi-desktop configuration of the bar possible and opens the possibility to create individualized bar configuration on a per display and per space level. These simple ingredients make items almost endlessly customizable and can be used to display arbitrary information and perform useful actions. For some examples see my sketchybarrc and the plugins folder.

Some special features can not be accomplished with a simple item, this is where the components come into play. They basically are items with extra steps. They contain all the properties a regular item does, but they can do specialized tasks a simple item can not. For example, there is a graph component, which can be used to display graphs in the bar.

For more details on how the configuration works, see the Configuration section below.

This is my setup: where I have my screens and a vim mode indicator on the left. Not shown is the high memory warning which shows the process that is using high system memory on demand. In the center I have a spotify indicator (only when music is playing) and on the right I have (not shown) a high cpu process indicator, as well as a cpu graph, a github contribution counter, a new mail counter and the current date.

The cpu and memory indicators are only shown on the "code" screen and are not visible on the other screens.


Clone the repo and in it run

make install

This installs the app with my configuration preinstalled.

You can customize the configuration inside of $HOME/.config/sketchybar/sketchybarrc and run the bar via


If you want to use your own plugins, make sure that they are referenced in the rc with the correct path and that they are made executable via

chmod +x name/of/plugin.sh

You should of course vet the code from all plugins before granting them the executable bit to make sure they are not harming your computer.

If you have problems with missing fonts you might need to install the Hack Nerd Font:

brew tap homebrew/cask-fonts
brew install --cask font-hack-nerd-font


Since this is a work-in-progress project, there might be big and radical changes along the way. You can update by pulling from master and in the up to date repo folder run:

make update

This will not touch your configuration and the plugins, so if there is a radical change to the source code you might need to update those files too.


Below is a list of all possible commands you can currently use in the configuration file located in ~/.config/sketchybar/sketchybarrc:

Global configuration of the bar

sketchybar -m config <setting> <value>

where the settings currently are:

  • position: top or bottom
  • height: the height of the bar in pixels
  • padding_left: padding on the left before first item
  • padding_right: just as padding_right
  • bar_color: the color of the bar itself
  • display: on which display to show bar (main or all)

Adding a simple menubar item (items will appear in the bar in the order they are added)

sketchybar -m add item <name> <position>

where the name should not contain whitespaces, it can be used to further configure the item, which is covered later. The position is the placement in the bar and can be either left, right or center.

Adding a component

sketchybar -m add component <type> <name> <position>

Components are essentially items, but with special properties. Currently there are the component types:

  • title: Showing the current window title,
  • graph: showing a graph,
  • space: representing a mission control space

Changing the properties of an item

sketchybar -m set <name> <property> <value>

where the name is used to target the item with this name. A list of properties is listed below:

  • associated_space: on which space to show this item (can be multiple, not specifying anything will show item on all screens)

  • associated_display: on which displays to show this item (can be multiple, not specifying anything will show item on all displays)

  • label: the label of the item

  • label_font: the font for the label

  • label_color: the color of the label

  • label_padding_left: left padding of label (default: 0)

  • label_padding_right: right padding of label (default: 0)

  • icon: the icon of the item

  • icon_font: the font for the icon

  • icon_color: the color of the icon

  • icon_highlight_color: the highlight color of the icon (e.g. for active space icon)

  • icon_padding_left: left padding of icon (default: 0)

  • icon_padding_right: right padding of icon (default: 0)

  • graph_color: color of the associated graph

  • script: a script to run every update_freq seconds

  • update_freq: time in seconds between script executions

  • click_script: script to run when left clicking on item

  • cache_scripts: If the scripts should be cached in RAM or read from disc every time (values: on, off, default: off)

  • enabled: Set to off deactivates script updated and drawing, reactivate with on (values: on, off, default: on)

  • hidden: Only deactivates drawing and keeps scripts running (values: on, off, default:off)

Changing the default values for all further items

sketchybar -m default <property> <value>

this currently works for the properties:

  • label_font

  • label_color

  • label_padding_left

  • label_padding_right

  • icon_font

  • icon_color

  • icon_padding_left

  • icon_padding_right

  • update_freq

  • cache_scripts

It is also possible to reset the defaults via the command

sketchybar -m default reset

Subscribing items to system events for their script execution

sketchybar -m subscribe <name> <event>

where the events are:

  • front_app_switched: when frontmost application changes (not triggered if a different app of the same window is focused)
  • window_focus: when a window is focused (DEPRECATED, see custom event section)
  • space_change: when the space is changed
  • display_change: when the display is changed
  • title_change: when the title of the window changes (DEPRECATED, see custom event section)
  • system_woke: when the system has awaken from sleep

Creating custom events

This allows to define events which are triggered by a different application (see Trigger custom events). Items can also subscribe to these events for their script execution.

sketchybar -m add event <name>

Triggering custom events

This triggers a custom event that has been added before

sketchybar -m trigger <event>

This could be used to link the powerful event system of yabai to sketchybar by triggering the custom action via a yabai event.

Supplying data for graphs

sketchybar -m push <name> <data>

This pushes the data point into the graph with name name.

Forcing all shell scripts to run and the bar to refresh

sketchybar -m update

    Sketchybar sometimes stops updating when system wakes from sleep

    I have a clock plugin that updates once per second and sometimes when the machine is awakened from sleep, the clock module no longer updates. This is not unique to the clock plugin but it is the most noticeable example.

    Manually running sketchybar -m —refresh in a terminal does not fix the issue either.

    I have managed to find a work around by adding yabai -m signal --add event=system_woke action="brew services restart sketchybar" to the end of my .yabairc file.

    happening on both my Mac Laptops. M1 Pro / M2. Whenever I have sketchybar running switching between spaces is significantly slower (like up to 2-3s delay with the default config in the repo).

    If I remove spaces / calendar... all the default widgets - it does speed up but still slower than without running sketchybar :/

I tried using the example setup from https://github.com/FelixKratz/SketchyBar/discussions/47#discussion-3587958 but the "Control Center, *" items do not appear on the bar and sketchybar keeps telling "could not retrieve window details." when run from terminal.

    Feature Requset: Enable / Disable Plugins without Restarting

    I know you are refactoring somethings currently, but I thought I would mention that a way to remove or add plugins on the fly would be great. I could write conditional logic into the the config and plugin scripts, but for some tasks it gets a little messy.

    Example 1. Turn on/off X plugin at 1600 every day. Example 2. Turn on/off Y plugin with SKHD hotkey. Example 3. Some program opens, remove xyz plugins and add abc plugins. Example 4. Reminders plugin count is 0 remove itself from the bar. Example 5. Additional Space is created add a new default space icon and label.

    These are just some ideas, the bar is great as is though. Thanks for you work on this!

  • Add slider component

    Add slider component

    This feature should make https://github.com/FelixKratz/SketchyBar/discussions/12?sort=new#discussioncomment-3833532 less sketchy, but would look fairly similar with some more customization options.

    How I imagine the slider component to work is the following:

    • The slider would be a new component just as the alias, graph, bracket or space and would take an additional <length> parameter at creation
    • Just as the other components the slider would get its own subdomain for slider specific settings
    • The slider would be composed from some basic building blocks:
      • A percentage property which would be a number between 0 and 100 and sets the progress of the slider
      • A knob, which would be a simple element with all <text_property>s just as the icon and label, such that it can hold a symbol with font information, a background etc. And would automatically be placed centered at the current slider percentage position
      • A background to style the slider backdrop with all <background_property>s
      • A color to style the progression of the slider
      • Just as for the alias and graph components the slider would be sandwiched between the regular icon and label (which are deactivated by default)

    Optionally the slider could be drawn vertically, by setting slider.horizontal=off and it would be possible to make the slider send a corresponding percentage for a mouse.clicked event to its script, such that it would be possible to modify the slider value via mouse interaction. It would also be possible to include a new mouse event for mouse dragging to allow dragging the slider...

  • v2.8.1(Jul 30, 2022)


    • The bar is no longer 'sticky' by default, since it messes with certain system animations (#220), thus the new sticky bar property is available.

    If the bar is set to be sticky it will be always rendered on all space (as it was prior to this release), otherwise it will only be rendered on the active space and moved after the space has been changed. Because of the known issue of sluggish space change animations with a sticky bar I suggest to only use the sticky bar if you have disabled the space change animations (via yabai).


    • Fixes an issue with clicks leading to a SIGSEGV in rare cases (#219)
    • Fixes an issue with slow space change animations due to the WindowServer handling sticky windows differently (#220)

  • v2.7.0(Jun 15, 2022)

    Improvements and Additions

    • Significant performance improvements in all use cases, but especially in animations

    • popup.background.image can now be used and the items are aligned accordingly, e.g. see this Spotify widget, where I have the album art below the controls in a popup: Screen Shot 2022-06-15 at 23 31 08

    • Add notch_offset and notch_width options to --bar domain, along with positions q = left of the notch and e = right of the notch to properly account for notched internal displays

    • New animation function: quadratic


    • Fixes a slight memory leak when querying default_menu_items

    • Fixes a crash when an NSDistributedNotificationCenter event would not sent a proper JSON object
