     −b, −−button button action
     Create a button with text button. The action are the
     shell commands that will be executed by this button.
     Multiple buttons can be defined. Will launch the shell
     commands inside a terminal emulator, using
     i3−sensible−terminal.

     −B, −−button−no−terminal button action
     Same as above, but will execute the shell commands
     directly, without launching a terminal emulator.



i3−nagbar is used by i3 to tell you about errors in your
configuration file (for example). While these errors are
logged to the logfile (if any), the past has proven that
users are either not aware of their logfile or do not check
it after modifying the configuration file.



     i3−nagbar −m 'You have an error in your i3 config file!' \
     −b 'edit config' 'i3−sensible−editor ~/.config/i3/config'
