Urgent and icons revisited

Updated urgent colors and more icons
Added by Christoph Kappel over 11 years ago

Urgent

Currently, the urgent color triplet just overwrites the colors for e.g. the current highlighted view, when a window becomes urgent which is fine. Now (>r2450) we have the title triplet, which allows to use another border style or another background.

This would require two different triplets of colors:
  1. for views
  2. for title

To avoid that, the urgent colors are now optional and can be applied partially. So e.g. if we set only the urgent_fg color, only this will be used to show that something is urgent.

Icons

There are two new things regarding icons:

  1. Icons can be used standalone in the panel now (r2264):
    {{hide}}icon = Subtlext::Icon.new("arch.xbm")
    screen 1 do
      top    [ icon, :title, :spacer, :views ]
      botton [ icon, :spacer, icon ]
    end
  2. View buttons can contain an icon (r2400), nothing new so far. Since r2464 they can contain just the icon without the text, which is nice for smaller displays:
    {{hide}}view "terms" do
      match     "urxvt" 
      icon      "terms.png" 
      icon_only true
    end
