Changing order of tray and i3status on i3bar

Is it even possible to configure my own order of tray icons and i3status? I want to have tray icons on the left side of i3status (now they are on the right corner, almost invisible for my perception) and I literally have no idea how to do this.

There is no such functionality in i3 (i3bar). Checking the source, the location of the tray icons is hard-coded to the right (which makes sense, actually). So, I guess your alternative would be to suggest it as a feature to the mailing list, before patching any code yourself.


and check function configure_trayclients().

This is the one true order and it will stay that way. Patches not accepted :).
