Sure you can set a script to display the current song. But it would be nice to have it work automatically. I was thinking about a hand made solution, but came across this ...

The script uses notify-send, so for me that means dunst. I changed the script to use bar. Only downside is can't figure if I can have bar autosize as needed which obviously dunst can do. I set the width at a level to accomodate 95%+ of the songs anyway, so pick your battles right. Using bar avoids the other process dunst comes with. Again, its all relative right. Just cool to have options.
