Many people will tell you that it defeats the purpose of having a tiling manager and having a conky on an i3wm system. There is ofcourse the statusbar to help you. I would suggest you start up Manjaro i3 and you will see conky’s helping out the first time installers to remember the shortcuts. We have forgotten how hard it was to learn all these shortcuts. The longer you use i3, the more your fingers will go automatically to the shortcuts without thinking about it.
On the other hand it was an interesting project to make these conky’s for me and maybe they are usefull for new users. After making the tutorial I have restyled the conky so you can give the elements a colour of your own. Three colours have been defined. With only a hexadecimal colour code, you can change the colour.
