The Neo Desktop

The Neo Desktop

Flickr user Sanjeev put this desktop together on his Mac to show off how useful GeekTool can be. He’s right — it’s super useful and we’re impressed. Here’s how he set it up, and how you can too.


If you have a Mac and want to make something like this for your own use, here’s what you’ll need:

Sanjeev has some custom geeklets he uses for the time, date, and Spotify “Now Playing” that appear around the elements of his wallpaper — you’ll have to head over to his Flickr page to grab them — but he includes the code you’ll need to make them work and appear on your desktop all in one place, which is great.

We would probably ditch the extra folders on the desktop and maybe auto-hide the Dock, but clearly Sanjeev has work to do, and we don’t fault him for that. If you like what you see, let him know on his Flickr page.
