This started as a reply in the other thread [1] but I quickly realized it was getting link-dense, so I copied it over here. This is a share of the scripts that drive my i3blocks -> lemonbar experience.

Here's what my pipeline looks like[2] (form json dumps into plaintext) and my current i3blocks config[3]. It might look a little weird because it is generated. All of the values in that config end up as environment variables for panel sections (which I call "lemons"). And here's a link to the "tags" lemon [4], using a lemonbar helper[5] which gets passed to season[6] to style the separate blocks (this means the lemons work as standalone scripts as well as panel blocks).

The result of all these shenanigans is I can make fun panel-global styling decisions and see things quickly.

edit: to elaborate on the role of i3blocks: it gives me separate update timers for my panel sections, the ability to poll, and the ability to update only one block in response to a signal. Also I forgot to link it[7]

Excellent, thanks for sharing! Got a screenshot of the finished product?
EDIT: found some on your website. Looks good!

Man, what happened to you between 2017-2018.. you went from dark to light color schemes. They look lovely, but my eyes could not handle it o_O

:D I guess at some point the switch just flipped.

Actually, I think that's when I started trying to make my own schemes more, and I found it easier to reason about light colorschemes at the time.
