Configuration

interval:
typeof: integer
default: 10
The interval in which the information gets polled.

format:
typeof: string  
default: {usage}%
The format, how information should be displayed. On {} data gets inserted.

format-icons:
typeof: array/object
Based on the current usage, the corresponding icon gets selected.
The order is low to high. Or by the state if it is an object.

max-length:
typeof: integer
The maximum length in character the module should display.

min-length:
   typeof: integer
   The minimum length in characters the module should take up.

align:
   typeof: float
   The alignment of the text, where 0 is left-aligned and 1 is right-aligned. If the module is rotated, it will follow the flow of the text.

rotate:
typeof: integer
Positive value to rotate the text label.

states:
typeof: array
A number of cpu usage states which get activated on certain usage levels. See waybar-states(5).

on-click:
typeof: string  
Command to execute when clicked on the module.

on-click-middle:
typeof: string
Command to execute when middle-clicked on the module using mousewheel.

on-click-right:
typeof: string

Format Replacements

{load}: Current cpu load.

{usage}: Current overall cpu usage.

{usage{n}}: Current cpu core n usage. Cores are numbered from zero, so first core will be {usage0} and 4th will be {usage3}.

{avg_frequency}: Current cpu average frequency (based on all cores) in GHz.

{max_frequency}: Current cpu max frequency (based on the core with the highest frequency) in GHz.

{min_frequency}: Current cpu min frequency (based on the core with the lowest frequency) in GHz.

{icon}: Icon for overall cpu usage.

{icon{n}}: Icon for cpu core n usage. Use like {icon0}.

Examples

Basic configuration:

  "cpu": {
  	"interval": 10,
  	"format": "{}% ",
  	"max-length": 10
  }

Cpu usage per core rendered as icons:

  "cpu": {
  	"interval": 1,
  	"format": "{icon0}{icon1}{icon2}{icon3} {usage:>2}% ",
  	"format-icons": ["▁", "▂", "▃", "▄", "▅", "▆", "▇", "█"],
