I3BAR(1)			   i3 Manual			      I3BAR(1)

NAME
       i3bar - xcb-based status- and workspace-bar

SYNOPSIS
       i3bar [-s sock_path] [-b	bar_id]	[-v] [-h]

WARNING
       i3bar will automatically	be invoked by i3 for every bar configuration
       block.

       Starting	it manually is usually not what	you want to do.

       You have	been warned!

OPTIONS
       -s, --socket sock_path
	   Overwrites the path to the i3 IPC socket.

       -b, --bar_id bar_id
	   Specifies the bar ID	for which to get the configuration from	i3.

       -v, --version
	   Display version number and exit.

       -h, --help
	   Display a short help-message	and exit

DESCRIPTION
       i3bar displays a	bar at the bottom (or top) of your monitor(s)
       containing workspace switching buttons and a statusline generated by
       i3status(1) or similar. It is automatically invoked (and	configured
       through)	i3.

       i3bar supports colors via a JSON	protocol starting from v4.2, see
       https://i3wm.org/docs/i3bar-protocol.html

ENVIRONMENT
   I3SOCK
       Used as a fallback for the i3 IPC socket	path if	neither	the
       commandline contains an argument	nor the	I3_SOCKET_PATH property	is set
       on the X11 root window.

EXAMPLES
       Nothing to see here, move along.	As stated above, you should not	run
       i3bar manually.

       Instead,	see the	i3 documentation, especially the User's	Guide.

SEE ALSO
       i3status(1), j4status(1)	or conky(1) for	programs generating a
       statusline.

       dzen2(1)	or xmobar(1) for similar programs to i3bar.
