This project was to get familiar with shared memory concepts and boost libraries. The excuse was to create a timer visible in the i3 status bar.


  • Link:

  • Libraries: boost::program_options, boost::interprocess, std::chrono

  • C++ version: 14

Results: unfortunately I was travelling so I couldn't hack that much on this project. I still managed to make most of the interface with boost::program_options. I'll likely finish the whole thing during free time.

Important concepts learnt:

  • Koenig lookup

  • new namespace capabilities

  • hacking on the train is very good, hacking when on holiday a bit less

Looking for hackers with the skills:
