I need a menu-bar app* which will show me the output of a terminal command, and run that Terminal command every 60s or so.
Or I need a menu-bar app which will read the contents of a file, and update whenever that file is updated.
(The output would be no more than 3 or 4 digits)
Are there any such apps?
* neither the Dock nor the Desktop are workable alternatives. Needs to be the menu bar.
Update 2014-06-16: The answer from Jun 9 '12 at 2:15 did not end up working for me after all, so I'm still looking for a solution.
I forgot all about having asked this question. For the past several years I have been using TextBar which is the perfect solution that I had always been looking for.
