Script hlpvitem.py

A new script hlpvitem.py is now available. It displays item in a bar (like status) with highlight or private message, from an hidden buffer. So you will see content of message before switching to that buffer.

You must add item in a bar, like status, with this command:

/set weechat.bar.status.items

then press "Tab" and complete string by adding for example (without quotes): ",[hlpv]"

  • /set plugins.var.python.hlpvitem.buffer_number on/off (default: on)
