EnergyBar replaces your Mac's Touch Bar with a collection of widgets, such as a Dock or a "Now Playing" widget. The goal of EnergyBar is to maximize the Touch Bar's usability, while minimizing some of its flaws such as inadvertent tapping.
The default placement of EnergyBar widgets allows for consistency and memorization of your Touch Bar use. The areas around the Esc key and above the Delete key have been kept non-functional to alleviate the problem of inadvertent tapping. At the same time EnergyBar allows for customization so that you only have your favorite widgets visible.
NOTE: Mojave expands the number of Privacy controls (accessible from System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy). EnergyBar needs access to many of these areas: for example, it needs Accessibility for the esc key, Automation access to control the Finder and Location Services access to get the current location for weather purposes. If something stops working, make sure to check the Privacy controls in System Preferences and ensure that EnergyBar is enabled.
