Default Status bar for CWM?

When I say status bar, I do not mean something which tells me cpu temperature or fan speed or battery level or anything like that.
All I want is something which tells me which desktops have something on them, similar to the way DWM will indicate that desktops 1,3 and 7 have something for example.

Is there such an app?

Thank you

As far as I know, I think lemonbar can do that with some work.

But, what I do is have a cron script executing every ~6 minutes and echos entries from sysctl(8) and other sources to /dev/console. That in turn will print the items on xconsole(1).

Since by default xconsole(1) is active, it was easy to do.

Good Luck, port wmctrl should work with lemonbar and cwm(1) to show you your "desktop".

If you get things set up the way you'd like with CWM+Lemonbar, please let us know (and tell us how you did it!)
