It adds email +notification using `fetchmail`. It also adds the functionality of showing the +content of the file `$HOME/.message` when it exists. This can be used for +displaying info by other programs writing to this file. + +When a new email arrives a flashing text message is shown on the dwm's +status bar. + +Config .fetchmailrc +------------------- +This config works with GMail over IMAP with the IDLE extension for low bandwidth usage: + + poll imap.gmail.com port 993 proto IMAP user "<your_user>@gmail.com" there with password "<your_pass>" keep ssl idle + +Init script +----------- + +The notification is flashing during 60 seconds, then it is removed. Lines +written to `.message` are displayed during a second in the status bar. If +`.message` is deleted, the normal status message (date and uptime) returns. + +A pipe must be used with `fetchmail` when using IDLE extension because this way +it waits for updates from the inbox not doing polling. +If the `.message` file exists with some content, it is preserved and no email +notification is shown. + + fetchmail --check 2>/dev/null | while read line; do + new=`echo $line | sed 's/(//' | awk '{print $1-$3}'` + if [ $new != 0 ] && [ ! -e ~/.message ]; then + echo "New mail($new)" > ~/.message + echo "!!! !!! !!!" >> ~/.message + sleep 60 + if grep '^New mail' ~/.message >/dev/null 2>/dev/null; then + rm -f ~/.message + fi + fi + done & + while true; do + if [ -r ~/.message ]; then + while read line; do + xsetroot -name "$line" + sleep 1 + done < ~/.message + else + xsetroot -name "`date` `uptime | sed 's/.*,//'`" + sleep 1 + fi + done & + exec dwm + rm -f ~/.message + +Author +------ + +- Ricardo Catalinas Jiménez <[jimenezrick@gmail.com](mailto:jimenezrick@gmail.com)>
