(From the project introduction) "i3blocks executes your command lines and generates a status line from their output."
As per the i3blocks config file, here is the syntax to get the time in the status :
[time] label=any string or glyph full_text=any string or glyph command=date "+%a, %b %_d %Y %I:%M%P" interval=5
And here is how you execute a GUI command on click:
[click] full_text=Click me! command=gsimplecal color=#F79494
Both work, but how do I combine the two, that is, being able to click on the time to pop up the calendar? I tried this:
[clickable_time] full_text=date "+%a, %b %_d %Y %I:%M%P" command=gsimplecal interval=5
But it doesn't work (the date string command is displayed, and gsimplecal gets executed every 5 seconds) so obviously a workaround must be found..?
