Author Jody Holmes (Skwire Empire)

Description
Add battery percentage to window titlebar text.  Also adds a battery icon to the system tray to show battery life.

Features
  • Currently, it updates every fifteen seconds (will be made configurable at some point).
  • A plus in front of the battery glyph (+🔋) shows that you're charging (plugged in) while a minus (-🔋) shows that you're discharging (not plugged in).
  • Exiting from the tray icon should clean up the title bar text.
  • Not all title bars are modifiable, so some windows won't show the battery percentage information.
  • Windows that constantly update their title bar text, like some text editors, will remove the battery info. However, the fifteen second timer will bring it back.

Planned Features
  • Configurable refresh timer.
  • Auto-start with Windows option.
