Mute status of zoom in the OSX bar

Lately I have a bunch of meeting and I like to do “other” stuff while listening, and also be able to contribute at the speed of a single key-stroke.

Zoom already has this functionality, Cmd-Shift-A is the keystroke for toggling mute/unmute state. By default it’s not set to be globally, but you can make globally in zoom settings.

So that’s it? sadly no, since I don’t have zoom in the front of the screen, I don’t know when I am already muted or not…

I found this article on how to setup a mute indicator for zoom in hammerspoon. Since I am already using hammerspoon as my “window tiling” and for launching apps, I did a small tweaks to poll the information of zoom into the osx bar.
