Another update notifyer for conky/pacman (with ShowSize support)

I made myself a little bash script to get update notifications in conky

Put

#!/bin/bash
pacman -Sy
return 0;

in /etc/cron.hourly/pmupdate.sh
make it executable

chmod +x /etc/cron.hourly/pmupdate.sh

Put this in ~/.conky/pmupdate.sh (or where ever you see fit)

#!/bin/sh

# Version 1.1.b2
#########################################################################################################################
### configuration setting

# # of packages in output list
list_len=8

# Conky parse code for "system is up to date" line
conky_parse_siutd=

# Conky parse code inserted before every package name
conky_parse_pkg=

# Conky parse code inserted before every package size
conky_parse_size='${goto 160}'

# Show a summary line at the end 'true' or anything
show_summary='true'

# Show remove package summary line at end. Set to 'true' or anything
show_remove_summary='true'

# # of packages in remove list, set to 0 to disable the list
rlist_len=2
# Notice that 'show_remove_summary' MUST be set to 'true' if you want to show a list of those packages

# Conky parse code inserted before summary line
conky_parse_summary=

### End of configuration
#########################################################################################################################

declare -a pkg size
IFS=`echo -en "\n\b"`

    if [ "$show_remove_summary" = 'true' ]; then
    for i in $(pacman -Qu | sed -n '/Remove/,/Total Re/p' | sed 's/\t/\n/; s/: /\n/; s/  /\n/g' | sed 's/^ //; /^$/d' | grep ']' | sed 's/ /!/' | cut -d '!' -f1 ); 
       do rpkg=( "${rpkg[@]}" "$i" )

       do rsize=( "${rsize[@]}" "$i" )
    done
fi

    for i in $(pacman -Qu | sed 's/\t/\n/; s/: /\n/; s/  /\n/g' | sed -n '/Targets /,$p' | sed 's/^ //; /^$/d' | grep ']' | sed 's/ /!/' | cut -d '!' -f1 ); 
       do pkg=( "${pkg[@]}" "$i" )

       do size=( "${size[@]}" "$i" )
    done

IFS=$ORIGIFS
curr=0

if [ "$list_len" -gt "${#pkg[@]}" ]; then list_len=${#pkg[@]}; fi
if [ "$rlist_len" -gt "${#rpkg[@]}" ]; then rlist_len=${#rpkg[@]}; fi


if [ "${#pkg[@]}" = "0" ]; then echo $conky_parse_siutd "System is up to date"; exit 0; fi

while [ $curr != $list_len ]
do
    echo $conky_parse_pkg ${pkg[$curr]} $conky_parse_size ${size[$curr]}
    let "curr += 1"
done

if [ "$show_summary" = "true" ]; then echo $conky_parse_summary "${#pkg[@]} Packages to update"; fi

if [ $show_remove_summary = 'true' ]; then
    if [ "${#rpkg[@]}" -gt "0" ]; then
        echo $conky_parse_siutd "${#rpkg[@]} Packages will be removed"; 
    fi
fi

if [ "$rlist_len" -gt "0" ]; then
    if [ "${#rpkg[@]}" -gt "0" ]; then
            curr=0
            while [ $curr != $rlist_len ]
            do
                echo $conky_parse_pkg ${rpkg[$curr]} $conky_parse_size ${rsize[$curr]}
                let "curr += 1"
            done
    fi
fi

And finally in your .conkyrc

${execpi 900 sh <PATH TO pmupdate.sh>}

edit:
You have to use the ShowSize option for this to work.
edit your /etc/pacman.conf
in the Misc options section theres a line #ShowSize
remove the # in front of that line.

Change log
1.0 First release
1.1.b1 Added support for packages that's going to be removed
1.1.b2 BUG FIX: Output error, sometimes wrong count and bad list due to leading whitespaces

Re: Another update notifyer for conky/pacman (with ShowSize support)

na12, U'll need to edit u'r /etc/pacman.conf
in the misc options remove the # in front of ShowSize

I guess I wasn't clear enough in my original post, this script will ONLY work if ShowSize is enabled

That is for conky parsing, as this script is intended to be run from conky. put
${execpi 900 sh <PATH TO pmupdate.sh>}

in your conkyrc. if you want to use this script for something else then conky you can remove the goto in the configuration part if the script

Thank you for reporting it, replace the old script with this

I haven't been able to test it as I already had updated everything when you reported it, but it should work. I'll change the script in the original post when I know it does.

Edit, There was another bug introduced in this fix but it's solved and the original post is updated with a hopefully bug free version

Are you really using the latest script that's in the first post? I noticed that same bug this morning but it's supposed to be fixed, and I'v tested it with your output and it works for me.

Re: Another update notifyer for conky/pacman (with ShowSize support)

now work perfectly,sorry i used previous script,I didn't saw that you put new

P.S. one suggestion,maybe it will be better use ${alignr} instead  of ${goto 160}
