Reader Rich Rines' desktop proves theming on the Mac isn't dead after all. While making use of a few Mac apps to help get things done, the desktop comes together thanks to custom scripts, icons and wallpaper.
- GeekTool (Data) - Used custom CURL scripts to pull the twitter feed, date and time, and weather.
- Bowtie (iTunes Controls) - The Zukunft Condesed White theme is used.
- Minium2 (Dock Theme)
- Gill Sans Text Icons (Dock Icons)
- Geosans Light (Font used throughout)
- Wallpaper, Folders, and Drive Icons - Custom (contact @richrines)
Much of what you see is made possible by custom CURL scripts that funnel data in to GeekTool, allowing it to be displayed on the desktop. Rich has pulled his twitter feed, the date and time, and the weather. He's also created custom icons and wallpaper. If you're interested in any of it to replicate the style, you can contact him via Twitter.
