Linux Laptop Battery Meter

September 6, 2022 at 6 P.M. Eastern Time

I've been working on a command-line battery meter for my laptop for the past few days, since the one built into Debian's GNOME desktop is so inaccessible and inaccurate. Github was down earlier, so I decided to just release this code here on my web site.

I just added some nutritional information to this while writing this post, because, of course, some people want to know their own run-time in relation to the computer's run-time. Obviously we don't eat batteries..
