           Display a short help-message and exit.

       -t, --type type
           Display either a warning or error message. This only changes the
           color scheme for the i3-nagbar. Default: error.

       -m, --message message
           Display message as text on the left of the i3-nagbar.

       -f, --font font
           Select font that is being used.

       -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.

DESCRIPTION
       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.

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