[SOLVED] - Is this a conky calendar?

Hi,
Just noticed this screenshot: http://lifehacker.com/5393804/the-ultim … en-desktop

To the right there is a very cool calendar running, does anyone know if it's a conky configuration. I like it alot!
Some of the settings is listed there but don't seem to find anything about this calendar.

That's easy.
Here is an example for the text part:
${color3} ${time %A,}
   ${time  %d. %B %Y}
${hr}
${exec cal}

The result is:

Re: [SOLVED] - Is this a conky calendar?

Have a look at the bash script mentioned in the first post:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=690753

Change the "second_part" a bit and you should be able to get such a layout.
Maybe I'll write a script later if you can't handle it.

I now have:

${color0}${execi 1 ~/calendar1.sh first_part}${color1}${execi 1 ~/calendar1.sh today }${color0}${execi 1 ~/calendar1.sh second_part}

Its looking like a square:
Su Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa
1  2  3  4  5  [6]  7
8 9...

Would like it to look like
1
2
3
4
5
[6]
7
8

Re: [SOLVED] - Is this a conky calendar?

Here is a script which converts the output of cal into a vertical or horizontal direction just call it with the direction as parameter.

#!/bin/bash

# Possible color code are:

# Color     Foreground     Background
# black         30                     40
# red             31                     41
# green         32                     42
# yellow         33                     43
# blue             34                     44
# magenta     35                     45
# cyan             36                     46
# white         37                     47

# For more information have a look at http://tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/colorizing.html#AEN19813

# Set default background color
DFT_BG='\E[40m'
# Set default foreground color
DFT_FG='\E[32m'
# Set color for today marking
THIS_DAY_COLOR='\E[47m'

TODAY_DAY=`date | awk -F" " '{print $2}' | sed 's/\.//'`

days=`cal | sed 's/[a-zA-Z]//g' | sed 's/\S\S\S\S//g'`

case "$1" in
    vertical)
        echo -e ${DFT_BG}${DFT_FG}
        for day in ${days}
        do
            [ ${day} -eq ${TODAY_DAY} ] && echo -e "${THIS_DAY_COLOR}${day}${DFT_BG}${DFT_FG}"
            [ ! ${day} -eq ${TODAY_DAY} ] && echo -e ${day}
        done
    ;;
    horizontal)
        echo -e ${DFT_BG}${DFT_FG}
        for day in ${days}
        do
            [ ${day} -eq ${TODAY_DAY} ] && month="${month} ${THIS_DAY_COLOR}${day}${DFT_BG}${DFT_FG}"
            [ ! ${day} -eq ${TODAY_DAY} ] && month="${month} ${day}"

Re: [SOLVED] - Is this a conky calendar?

I think it's possible to reduce it to a few messy looking sed pipes and cal, but I'm not great with sed and can't remove a couple of extra newlines that appear, so went the script route instead.

#!/bin/sh

TODAY=`date +%e`
MONTHLENGTH=`cal | egrep -v '[A-Za-z]' | wc -w`

for i in $(seq 1 $MONTHLENGTH)
do
    if [ $i == $TODAY ]; then
        printf "\${color #e84448}%2d\${color}\n" $i
    else
        printf "%2d\n" $i
    fi
done

Probably makes more sense to just build the list of dates then do a sed operation to mark today's date instead of constant if/then/else checking for each day, but it works.

Re: [SOLVED] - Is this a conky calendar?

for the really short variant without any loops and ifs you could use something like this:

1 line vertical:

#!/bin/sh
cal | sed -e "1,2d;s/^ *//g;s/  / /g;s/ /\n/g;s/$(date +%e)/$(echo -en '\e[30;47m')$(date +%e)$(echo -en '\e[00m')/"

1 line horizontal:

#!/bin/sh
echo $(cal | sed -e "1,2d;s/^ *//g;s/  / /g;s/ /\n/g;s/$(date +%e)/$(echo -en '\e[30;47m')$(date +%e)$(echo -en '\e[00m')/" | tr '\n' ' ')

Now just for pseup my script without if/else/for:

Closest yet!

But something is wrong with the "today output".

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 >[30;47m14>[00m 15 16 17 18 19 ...

So the color or [ ] or whatefter that will hilight todays date is not working properly.

Re: [SOLVED] - Is this a conky calendar?

you should execp the script from within conkyrc and replace the bash color definitions with conky ones.

#!/bin/sh
cal | sed -e "1,2d;s/^ *//g;s/  / /g;s/ /\n/g;s/$(date +%e)/\$\{color1\}&\$color/" | tr '\n' ' '
# conkyrc
color1 #f0f0f0

TEXT
${execp /path/to/above.sh}

note: untested.

also: FYI, don't use #!/bin/sh and $( ) in the same script.  #!/bin/bash and $( ) or #!/bin/sh and ` `.

Re: [SOLVED] - Is this a conky calendar?

sorry bout that, caught a small mistake and edited my above post.

//blue/0/~/ cal | sed -e "1,2d;s/^ *//g;s/  / /g;s/ /\n/g;s/$(date +%e)/\$\{color1\}&\$color/" | tr '\n' ' '
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 ${color1}14$color 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 3

that should get parsed correctly by conky recoloring the 14 to color1

Works like a charm! thx m8!

possible to get it in vertical aswell?

btw, is this conky code or general programing?

Re: [SOLVED] - Is this a conky calendar?

for vertical just use my variant from above with the color corrections from brisbin33:

cal | sed -e "1,2d;s/^ *//g;s/  / /g;s/ /\n/g;s/$(date +%e)/\$\{color1\}&\$color/"

the color stuff is conky, the rest is bash/sed scripting
