We have previously mentioned the awesome Mac desktop customization tool, Geektool, in several posts. Fortunately the developer of this app has released GeekTool App on Mac App Store, and it had gained a lot of popularity only in a few days.
Geektool app comes with three default plugins:
- File plugin to monitor MacOS X activity with /var/log/system.log, or any file that you want to follow.
- Shell mode to launch custom scripts or commands like “df” to check space left on filesystems or “uptime” to monitor load on your machine.
- Finally, image mode helps you monitor bandwith usage, CPU load, memory availability on your server with tools like MRTG or RRD.
The screenshot of Geektool on Mac App store features the Awesome Clock and Sand Desktop we had previously covered. So if you are interested in replicating this beautiful desktop check this video tutorial.
