20 Creation of a new widget on qtile called Net

The place to learn more about Qtile is


We found a widget we can add to our menu bar called Net.


We will make it together.

Start with a copy/paste and start changing the lines and compare between widgets what the writing syntax is.

Change one thing and reload qtile to check if it crashes already.
Then you know what to change.

Follow the video to see the development workflow.

The things I have learned are

  • you can add a komma at the end of the last line and it will keep working
  • you can NOT define the same variable again like the font-size in the video
