#/trigger set conky command "/mute /set plugins.var.python.text_item.conky_${my_field} all ${my_field} ${color:white}${my_value}"

This trigger does two things. First (the regex line), it change the look of the ouput to be easier to read and to match the look of the rest of the config. Second (the command line), it create a text_item option for all line and if the conky buffer is not displayed on screen, the items created by text_item will become visibile in the status bar (go to the status bar section to add it to the bar). If you have weechat < 3.0 you should not use the last line because if you open fset at the same time your cpu will reach 100% (see this. If you have weechat ≥ 3.0 it is safe but you must set the option fset.look.auto_refresh value as mine (see the fset section)

Note: you need the conky-cli package on Debian

Bar buflist and control_buffers

≥ WeeChat 3.4 for ${define:...}

WeeChat Screenshot

the buflist should now be a lot faster thanks to ${define:...} but remains slow nonetheless since the whole buflist is refresh on each hotlist_changed signals (which is why all buflists are slow no matter how they are configured, but mine is worse than most since the format options are complex and that I am using all three buflist items instead of just one.)

Here are some tips if you want to make the buflist faster

  1. If you don't use the tab bars (called the control_buffers bars), set buflist.look.use_items to 1
  2. If you don't mind low messages (join/part/quit...) set the default notify level to something higher
  3. By collapsing servers buffers

/bar set buflist priority 2000

unmerge servers buffers from core and indent

/set irc.look.server_buffer independent

Note: show channels and privates buffers under their respective server instead of mixing them all.

/buflist_tools resize 20 15

The buflist will be resized to 20. 15 columns for the left section and 5 columns for the right section

/buflist_tools hideonly extra nick_prefix lag
/buflist_tools enable indent_tree real_net_name

I want to show all the items except extra, nick_prefix and lag. I want to display real network name (not the one used in /server add). Instead of spaces for the indent item, I want tree symbols.

#/eval /set weechat.bar.status.items ${weechat.bar.status.items},conky_CPU,conky_RAM,conky_Swap,conky_Up,conky_Down

Uncomment the last line if you want to show system info using conky when the conky buffer is not displayed. You will need the conky trigger and the script text_item.py

Bar input

/bar add rootinput root bottom 0 0 [input_prompt]+(away),[input_search],[input_paste],input_text
/bar set rootinput priority 1000
/bar del input
/bar set rootinput name input

Bar Nicklist

/bar set nicklist color_fg 229
/bar set nicklist separator 1
/bar set nicklist conditions ${nicklist} && ${window.number} == 1 && ${buffer.full_name} != ${if:${plugins.var.group_tools.newsmon.all.general.buffer_full_name}!=?${plugins.var.group_tools.newsmon.all.general.buffer_full_name}:irc.libera.##news} && ${buffer.full_name} != core.newsmon
/bar set nicklist size_max 14
/bar set nicklist size 14

Note: I changed the conditions to display the nicklist only on buffer of type channels ${nicklist} and on the window number 1, which is my chat window (2 being my highlight window and 3 my conky window). In my case, I could remove ${window.numer} == 1 because the highmon and exec buffer (conky) are not of type channels so ${nicklist} is enough.

Monitors

you need:


/trigger addoff monitor_model print "free;free;free"

The trigger above serves as a model for others triggers and must be disabled. If it is accidentaly enabled, the strange arguments "free;free;free" will make it almost impossible to be triggered.

/trigger addreplace monitor_rebuild config "trigger.trigger.monitor_model.*;plugins.var.group_tools.monitor.list.trigger.list;plugins.var.group_tools.monitor.item.*.hook_arguments"

All monitors


you need:


/trigger addreplace monitor_update_title config plugins.var.group_tools.chanmon.all.general.*;plugins.var.group_tools.highmon.all.general.*;plugins.var.group_tools.newsmon.all.general.*
/trigger set monitor_update_title regex "/.*/${tg_option}/my_monitor /^plugins.var.group_tools.([^.]+).*/${re:1}/my_monitor /.*/${if:${my_monitor}==chanmon?Channels Monitor:${if:${my_monitor}==highmon?Highlights Monitor:${if:${my_monitor}==newsmon?News Monitor}}}/my_title /.*/powerline,Powerline,filtered_lines,Filtered Lines,${if:${my_monitor}==newsmon?keep_url,Keep URL,keep_date,Keep Date:hidden_channels,Hidden Channels},/my_features /([^,]+),([^,]+),/${if:${plugins.var.group_tools.${my_monitor}.all.general.${re:1}}!=?${color:default}[${color:bar_fg}${re:2}${color:default}] }/my_features"
/trigger set monitor_update_title command "/buffer_autoset add core.${my_monitor} title ${my_title} ${my_features}" 

add this trigger if you want to display in the titles bars (titlesep & titlenosep) of monitors buffers which options are currently enabled (for example, if you have enabled powerline, [powerline] will be shown in the title bar).

/window 2
/eval /window splitv ${if:${info:version_number}>=50397184?15:85}
/buffer exec.conky
/window 1
/layout store main-control-conky windows

a layout with three windows. Like the above one, the first window is the bigger one but window 2 is now smaller to make some room for window 3 which is use to display conky

Layout main-control-control2

/layout apply main-control
/window 2
/window splitv 50

Miscellaneous

nullpointer (https://0x0.st)

/alias add nullpointer /exec -sh -hsignal nullpointer $* 2>&1 | curl -sfSF file=@- https://0x0.st
/trigger addreplace nullpointer hsignal nullpointer
/trigger set nullpointer regex "/\n//out"
/trigger set nullpointer command "/command -buffer ${buffer.full_name} core /input delete_line;/command -buffer ${buffer.full_name} core /input insert ${out}"

This allow you to type /nullpointer uptime for example, to send the output of the uptime command to 0x0.st. Your input bar content will be replaced by the url of the paste. This way you can visit the URL to see if there is sensitive information before giving the url to everyone. You may wonder why I didn't used something like: _/exec -sh -pipe "/input delete_line;/input insert " $* 2>&1 | curl -sF c=@- https://0x0.st Well If we use this, the input bar will be filled with the command and not the url.

This let you translate text with the translate-shell program (package has the same name, at least for Debian). If you want to translate something someone said, press the middle mouse button on the message then press 't'. If you want to know the language of the text, press 'l' instead. Finally, you can press 'd' this will open a buffer and call translate-shell in dictionary mode. For the key 't', the target language is choosed like this: if there is a translate_lang localvar for the buffer, use the langage specified by this localvar. If not, check if the buffer is a channel or private and if so, check if there is a translate_lang localvar for the corresponding server buffer. If not, check if the option plugins.var.translate_lang exist. Otherwhise, check if there is a main spell dict set and if not use the LANG env. So, 1) buffer localvar 2) server buffer localvar 3) option 4) main spell dict 5) LANG environment variable

This trigger will give you hint about max nickname length and available character in nickname and will also tell you if the nick is valid or not. Also note that weechat has limited support for the rfc8265. For example, on an ergo server with utf8 nickname enabled, weechat correctly report the nickname é as valid but incorrectly report │ as valid.
