How to give a background to the time date cpu area in I3WM?

I’m pretty new to i3 and i3-gaps. I downloaded the i3 community edition and I’ve seen this on the home screen, home layout. My question is how do I give a background to this like give it a colour like this one rgba(128, 128, 128, 0.5) something like a grey seethrough colour. Or at least something where I can see the text. Even for the one on the bottom left
If you know how to please let me know

conky scripts can be tweaked as you want them, but color codes are hexadecimal. You can start with some basics from here:


As @bogdancovaciu said, or have a look here and there where tons of people have made Conky work on Manjaro…
