Colors are working now! Smilie
Gave it a shot this afternoon for a few minutes (first image), but since the sun was shining, I decided to not sit in front of the computer Smilie

So I then continued like 1 hr and 5 minutes ago....

And a a few adjustments later, voila, the result is screenshot:

Allthough I had code written already for that, I could only re-use 2 lines of code, the other 140 lines (total, incl yesterday) were/are freshly written.

I'm so happy, now that the core visuals are done (already!!!), I can focus on the cool part....
Convenience functions, like: ask, choose, edit, progress, download and all the other small things Smilie

You have NO IDEA how much I MISS my TUI!!
But I force myself to continue SWARM until I can replace all my TUI scripts.

Console/terminal feels sooo 1985 again...

Soon, very soon.. I hope Smilie

And just saying.. colors and borders are THEME'able! Smilie

But for the roadmap ahead, I'll do these tomorrow:
* ask "Question?" ; the (yn) will be supported by language file & code!
* choose $list or "${ARRAY[@]}" ; the select wrapper
* and if, which probably will be the case, I have enough time, status $? "left text" "center text"

As this would complete what I consider the absolute minimal core requirements of SWARM.

upsstats.html - HTML template for Network UPS Tools upsstats DESCRIPTION
This file is used by upsstats.cgi(8) to generate status pages. Certain commands are recognized, and will be replaced with various status elements on the fly. FORMATTING
All commands must be alone on a line, and start and end with @. A line that has any extra characters before or after the @ will be passed through unchanged. BLOCK CONTROL
Some commands begin blocks - sections of the template that will be included, excluded, or repeated depending on certain parameters. @FOREACHUPS@ Starts a block that will be repeated for each MONITOR directive in the hosts.conf(5). This is how you can generate pages that moni- tor all of your systems simultaneously. @ENDFOR@ Ends a FOREACHUPS block. @IFSUPP var@ Starts a block that will only be printed if the variable var is supported by the current UPS. This is generally used to suppress "not supported" messages by avoiding the label and variable call entirely. @ENDIF@ Ends an IFSUPP block. IFSUPP blocks may be contained within a FOREACHUPS block. Nesting and other combinations are not supported. OTHER COMMANDS
@AMBTEMP@ Insert the ambient temperature in the current temperature scale. @DATE format@ Insert the current date and time. The format string is passed to strftime, so almost anything is possible. See strftime(3) for possible values. @DEGREES@ Insert the entity for degrees (°) and either C or F depending on the current temperature scale. @HOST@ Insert the designation of the host being monitored, like myups@localhost. @HOSTDESC@ Insert the host's description from hosts.conf(5). @HOSTLINK@ Insert a link to upsstats.cgi with the "host" variable set to the current UPS. This is only useful within a FOREACHUPS block. @IMG varname [extra]@ Insert an IMG SRC to upsimage.cgi(8) for one of four possible status variables: BATTPCT - Battery charge - a percentage LOADPCT - UPS load - percentage OUTVOLT - Outgoing voltage (from the UPS) UTILITY - Incoming utility voltage extra is where you can put additional definitions. Right now the valid definitions are colors for various parts of the bars drawn by upsimage.cgi. Possible color names are: back_col - background color scale_num_col - scale number color summary_col - summary color (number at the bottom) ok_zone_maj_col - major scale color for the normal ("ok") zone ok_zone_min_col - minor scale color for the normal ("ok") zone neutral_zone_maj_col - major scale color for the neutral zone neutral_zone_min_col - minor scale color for the neutral zone warn_zone_maj_col - major scale color for the warning zone warn_zone_min_col - minor scale color for the warning zone bar_col - the color of the bar in the middle All colors are hex triplets - 0xff0000 is red, 0x00ff00 is green, and 0x0000ff is blue. Examples: @IMG BATTPCT@ @IMG BATTPCT back_col=0xff00ff bar_col=0xaabbcc@ @IMG UTILITY ok_zone_maj_col=0x123456@ @REFRESH@ Insert the META header magic for refreshing the page if that variable has been set by the browser. This needs to be in the HEAD section of the page. @STATUS@ Expand the abbreviations in the STATUS variable - OL becomes "On line", OB becomes "On battery", and so on. @STATUSCOLOR@ Insert red, green, or yellow color triplets depending on the severity of the current UPS status. Normal operations are green, warn- ings like voltage trim/boost or "off" are yellow, and other events like being on battery or having a low battery are red. @VAR varname@ Insert the current value of the status variable varname on the host being monitored, or "Not supported". @TEMPC@ Use the Celsius scale for temperature data (default). @TEMPF@ Use the Fahrenheit scale for temperature data. @UPSTEMP@ Insert the UPS temperature in the current scale. @UTILITYCOLOR@ Insert either #FF0000 (red) or #00FF00 (green) depending on the incoming utility voltage. By default this will return green, unless the utility is outside the bounds defined by lowxfer and highxfer. Those voltages are a function of your driver, and do not exist on all of them. @VERSION@ Insert the version number of the software. OTHER TEMPLATES
upsstats.cgi(8) will also open a file called upsstats-single.html if you call it with "host=" set in the URL. That file uses the same rules and techniques documented here. SEE ALSO
