Argos lets you write GNOME Shell extensions in a language that every Linux user is already intimately familiar with: Bash scripts.

More precisely, Argos is a GNOME Shell extension that turns executables’ standard output into panel dropdown menus. It is inspired by, and fully compatible with, the BitBar app for macOS. Argos supports many BitBar plugins without modifications, giving you access to a large library of well-tested scripts in addition to being able to write your own.
