  • pacman-contrib for pacman


  • This program uses the openweathermap API for fetching the weather. You must have an API key from openweathermap if you want to use the weather function.
  • Update checking and package counting will take a long time, and slow down the program by quite a bit. This cannot be avoided because of the fact that these checks require external system commands. Only use these options if you don't mind losing a second or two of time every time you run the program.
    • NixOS does not support package update counting.

How to use

  • Grab the latest release binary and config files from the releases page
  • Copy example_config.toml to ~/.config/draconis/config.toml
  • Change the config to your liking
  • Add the program to your shell's startup
