#Usage with other tools

You can use Zman with i3status-rust to show salah time in your status bar.


i3status-rust configuration Example:

block = "custom"
cycle = ["zman year -J", "zman month -J"]
on_click = "<command>"
interval = 300
json = true

See more examples to learn other variations.

If you like zman to support your favourite status-bar, please hit me in the mailing-list with the valid input of your status-bar. In i3status-rust the valid input it would be {"icon": "ICON", "state": "STATE", "text": "YOURTEXT"}.
