Conky Widgets Script

So, I wanted to make a system by which I (or anyone else) could publish Lua widgets and make it as easy as possible to build them into Conky. I’ve come up with a simple Lua script into which you can drop widget code blocks, some simple configuration info, and display them all with just a single call in Conky. That way, you only need one .conkyrc and one conky_widgets.lua script for all your widgety needs!

The .tar.gz file attached contains the basic Conky Widgets script; you will need one or more code blocks to make it work. For more info, please see the Conky Blog: [link]

The screenshot preview was created using a combination of my "Air" clock and four semi-circle rings. The widget code blocks for those widgets are contained in the packages below:

+ v1.1 -- Simplified calls to widgets by implementing a global drawing surface, and included imlib2 by default (03.11.2009)
+ v1.0 -- Original release (30.10.2009)

The counter-clockwise widget isn't working properly for me (the indicator ring is all weird). I'm not sure if anybody else is having this problem but I thought I'd post my solution.

To fix this I just copy/pasted the entire clockwise ring function and only changed




(Just the first line after "-- Draw indicator ring"). It now functions exactly as a counter-clockwise ring should, but with the same start and end definitions as the clockwise rings. That is, where the indicator bar is attached is the end angle, which still needs to be more positive than the start angle.

Also, thanks for the work you've done, I love it!

is there a way to make the ring 'reverse' so if its ram percentage used can i make the ring fill up anti-clockwise?
love the scripts by the way keep up the good work
how can install this??

First, you need to make sure you've got the "conky-all" package installed from the Karmic repos, or alternatively, that you've got Conky v1.7.2 with Lua, Cairo and Imlib2 bindings (you can check this by running "conky -v" in a terminal).

The rest of the instructions are in the actual Lua file (which you can just open in a text editor).

Let me know if you have any other issues :)
