Geektool 3.0 Beta is out!
I was just looking over some of my previous posts about Geektool (which I love) yesterday, and I thought about how there might be another version out. I checked the tynsoe website and saw a new version of Geektool: 3.0 beta!
I’m not on my home computer now, but I’m testing it on my sister’s computer (I’m on vacation).
Here’s some new things I’ve seen:
1) Tighter integration with System Preferences and a beautiful GUI
The creator of Geektool said in his ‘About’ page that he made Geektool 3.0 for noobs (opposite of geeks), so they could experience the robustness of Geektool too. This was certainly fulfilled in this release, with a tight, modern new inteface for your geeklets.
I’ve not seen much new in terms of the actual geeklets, except for one thing:
When you edit a shell script, you may click the little “…” next to the command execution input box to have a great, big text box to write and edit your script. This is really helpful for some complicated scripts I run that contain many different functions.
There’s nothing much different about the actual exectution of scripts, so Geektool 3 will probably be nothing major, just a good release for all those ‘noobs’ out there .
