I love Rainmeter and having moved to OS X full-time (at home) several months ago, I find I really miss it. In the meantime, I discovered Momentum, a “new tab” Chrome-extension that I quite like. Eventually these two things inspired this Geektool desktop.
For the first screenshot:
Wallpaper from Interfacelift
Left: “Three Things” reads from a text file (shell geeklet: cat /path/to/filename.txt)
Left: “Now Playing” is Bowtie with the Karma theme (works fairly well with Spotify + last.fm)
Center: Time (simple Date command: date +”%l:%M”)
Center: Greeting using a simple shell script found via Google
Center: Date (simple Date command: date “+%A, %B %e”)
Center: Today reads from a text file (or you could just as easily use “echo” twice in a shell geeklet)
Right: Weather geeklet by RikerJoe (thanks for this!)
Updated (second screenshot):
Wallpaper from 500px.com
Replaced Bowtie App with Simplify, using the Essence 1.2 jacket.
Replaced weather geeklet with HTML geeklet and darksky.net embed code. This is pretty slick because it's responsive; you can resize it just to show the current conditions and not the forecast.
