I've been using i3-gaps for a few years now and love it. The built-in status bar is perfectly okay, and i3-blocks adds a lot of useful capabilities without having to do too much customization, but I switched to polybar a while back.

Thanks Dian. The polybar project looks very interesting.

I'm a bit old school. Have you tried conky before? Curious about differences between that and polybar (assume conky is configured as a bar as well)

I didn't know you could do that with conky -- I'd only seen it in panel or wallpaper form, and haven't used it myself.
