I’m using i3 as my window manager, and I thought I would try some of the more complicated status commands to i3’s ibar.
I’m currently trying i3blocks. The problem is that many of their user contributed scripts (GitHub - vivien/i3blocks-contrib: Official repository for community contributed blocklets) use a shebang like
#!/bin/bash, which won’t work on Nixos.
Any suggestions on how to deal with this since the are masses of these scripts?
Doesn’t seem to be that many of them:
$ rg --no-filename '#!' | sort | uniq -c | sort --reverse
9 #!/usr/bin/env bash
7 #!/usr/bin/env python3
6 #!/usr/bin/env perl
2 #! /bin/sh
1 #! /usr/bin/perl
So you could just fix them (e.g. using
/usr/bin/env bash etc. instead) and create a PR upstream. Alternative would be to create a nix package for the repository and use

Probably the best solution since they actually accept such PRs.
Thanks for your reply!
I got two answers even though I only asked one question In this case it seems to be easier to just fix the shebangs and propose changes upstream, but I didn’t know about
patchShebangs so that is a plus.
