Put a fancy CPU/RAM usage chart in tmux status bar
So, once upon a time I had a crazy idea: to put an almost complete resource meter into the tmux status bar. You know, the clock is so boring. Let's add a battery indicator there. And the load numbers. And the memory usage...
Needless to say, this resulted in an unbearable user experience:
a:2.96G c:4.37G f:5.41G i:2.98G l:0.65/1.73/1.41 23:47
Actually, the data is OK, the "gauges" work fine on every Unix I tested them. If only it was a bit fancier...
It was tested on Mac OS X 10.8.2, Ubuntu 12.04, Ubuntu 11.10, Debian 6.0.6 and works fine with the default system Perl; there are no external dependencies at all.
