Übersicht Customises Your OS X Desktop With Widgets And Useful Data

Mac (10.9+): If you’re looking to customise your desktop in OS X, usually you’d turn to an app like GeekTool. Now there’s an alternative — Übersicht, a new app that lets you build custom widgets to embed on your desktop and display whatever you like — weather, to-dos, appointments.

Übersicht is brand new, and while there aren’t a lot of included widgets for it just yet, they’re really easy to write if you’re familiar with CoffeeScript or JavaScript. The app works well out of the box, and if all you want is a quick status monitor, the developer already has widgets that show you the top processes on your Mac using CPU or RAM, and a good-looking weather widget.

Übersicht is free and available now — you can hit the link below to see more of it, or head over to the project’s GitHub page. If you do build great widgets, make sure to submit them to the developer and he’ll include them in the list on the website.
