Conky with clickable url links?

Hey all,

I have a pretty niche question. I am currently using conky not necessarily as a way to check up on storage space or something but more to hold information about hotkeys and how to use the applications I am currently using.

There are a few apps I am looking to learn (i3, vim, rust documentation ect..) and obviously typing all that out in the conky feels like a task and a half.

So the question? Is there a way for conky (or an alternative app) that I can toggle on and off to reveal the info I need but also with clickable links?

I tried putting a link in the conky app but the URL is not clickable.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

All the best

1. why don't you use the really easy BL tool:
Bl Utilities->Take Screenshot->Imgur - Upload Screenshot->Anonymous Upload->...  ?
Google Drive is an imposition for me.  sad

2.What does your configuration file look like?

3.searching the Conky thread of the forum gives me these 4 excellent posts from our EL Conkystador, @Sector11

Re: Conky with clickable url links?

Just looking for a way to put links on the desktop?
One idea would be to use something like johnraff's popup script.  https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?id=7929

Another would be to use wbar, and set up the icons as links.  Set up a menu toggle with:

bash -c 'if ! pkill -x wbar; then exec wbar; fi'

This would allow you to rapidly toggle on and off what you want from a keybind or menu.

And the last would just be to set up menu entries in a submenu for what you want.

Big fan of wbar for the coolness factor:) you can place icons anywhere you want, and make your own to use.
