Does anybody know of any alternatives to GeekTool that allow you to put content on your desktop sourced from shell scripts, files, etc but that makes the content interactive?
A few use cases I would really like:
- A list of recent tweets where any links in the tweets are clickable
- A calendar widget that allows me to navigate forward and back in months
- A search box for google or wikipedia
- An app launcher
I know you could use Dashboard widgets for this but I prefer to have these right on the desktop itself. Also Dashboard widgets seem more limited in what they're able to do, but I'm less educated about these so I could be wrong.
Rainmeter does all this by the way, but is Windows only.
