I love this applet!

It does not seem to be updating. Tried changing the echo command in Command 1 in Settings and it never does change. Is there some trick to this?

I was considering writing an app like this - immediate application was extended battery information like real time current draw. I was browsing through existing applets and found Command Runner, and this little gem! The only glitch is the dynamic tool-tip doesn't work for me - just displays the command, not the output. But with two commands for panel output and menu command, there is plenty of dynamic output. BTW, xterm can also take fonts, colors, window size, title, command arguments and almost provides the functionality with a launcher - except it opens a normal app window instead of the applet info window.

Nice applet to print to my panel whatever I found useful! I tried to "monitor" one of my laptop in the network to find its current IP address using ping -c 1 hostname command with some grep's to have the output a bit nicer. While the ping was waiting for the response the applet makes microfreeze to whole cinnamon environment on Fedora29, Cinnamon 4.0.10 (probably the Weather applet does the same kind of microfreeze as well).

Excellent! Thank you so much, usage possibilities are endless :) Here is one bash script (to be called by Bash Sensors of course) that displays your internet public IP (useful if you use a VPN service for instance): #!/bin/bash my_public_ip=`dig +short 2>/dev/null` if [ $? -ne 0 ] then echo "No internet access" else echo $my_public_ip fi
