 > Hi, I see you have built i3status. Have you ever made i3wm work on mac?
 Ive managed to install the port but i3 cant find any display.

 Correct, I built `i3status` outside of MacPorts (I need/should create a
 Portfile!) and I built `i3wm` using MacPorts, and
 [https://ports.macports.org/port/rxvt-unicode/ urxvt] as well. I then
 created a file `~/.xinitrc.d/i3-startup.sh` which contains


 cd $HOME
 export LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
 export LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
 export XDG_CONFIG_HOME=$HOME/.config

 # start the urxvt daemon first
 /opt/local/bin/urxvtd -q -f -o &

 # and run i3
 exec /opt/local/bin/i3
 Then, run [https://github.com/XQuartz/XQuartz XQuartz] which should use
 `i3wm` as its window manager.
