I decided to give
i3 a try and it's a nice
ride. One of the things I missed is my textual clock that I
years ago. I was using it as a lockscreen
I looked at the code of i3lock and decided it
was simple to patch it for my needs. I spent few hours
coding and learning about
cairo and I'm happy
with the result.
This is how it looks:
It is launched using the following:
i3lock -k -i ~/.bg.png
The font used is Pragmata Pro in bold.
My patches are available on github.
