HeadsUp displays arbitrary command output on your OSX desktop.

It's just like watch, refreshing once a minute.

(Alternatively, it aims to be a simpler version of GeekTool—indeed, you may want to check out these example scripts for ideas.)

The code is freely available on GitHub—contributions welcome!

HeadsUp 0.2.1

Download HeadsUp-0.2.1.dmg.

This is a quick bugfix release. Thanks to Michael Hale, HeadsUp now runs on Leopard as well as Tiger. (I’ll upgrade one of these days…)
