The advantages of dwmblocks...

Just put up a video on dwmblocks which I've been using for a statusbar for a while now.

Get the build here.

It has probably three main advantages over other paradigms for doing statusbars, especially in dwm:

On the last point, you can pretty arbitrarily add in new click sequences in your dwm build as well. I mention in the video that I have it so if I hold shift while left clicking, the an instance of vim with the module script opens up so you can edit it.
