Our review

What we like

Fully customizable - fonts, colors, positions, notch size, animations. Can subscribe to general events e.g. space change as well as OS notification events e.g. Spotify track changed, to trigger scripts. Supports graphing arbitrary values. Items can be linked to spaces. Can pull in items from the macOS status bar e.g. Control Center or WiFi.

What we don't like

Config file is a bit fiddly to work with. Community plugins could be more structured - currently just config files + scripts shared in a GitHub discussion thread.
