wlclock is a digital analog clock for Wayland desktops.

wlclock is inspired by xclock and the default configuration has been chosen to mimic it. However unlike xclock, wlclock is not a regular window but a desktop-widget.

A Wayland compositor must implement the Layer-Shell and XDG-Output for wlclock to work.


wlclock depends on Wayland, Wayland protocols and Cairo.

To build this program you will need a C compiler, the meson & ninja build system and scdoc to generate the manpage.

git clone https://git.sr.ht/~leon_plickat/wlclock
cd wlclock
meson build
ninja -C build
sudo ninja -C build install
