We recently featured a desktop by our friend Sanjeev, but his latest one is too good not to highlight as well. He customised his Mac to look very much like the kind of design you’d get in Android Lollipop or Android M. Here’s how he did it.

In this case, GeekTool is all you really need to make this work, and much like his old desktop, he offers up all the custom code you’ll need for it at his Flickr page (linked below.) Here’s what you’ll need first though:

That’s it — and you’ll need to create your Geeklets for the clock, now playing on Spotify display, and the date on the side. They all fit nicely with the wallpaper too. To grab the code, hit the link below, and if you have questions about how to change things or set them up just so, make sure to ask Sanjeev on his Flickr page — he’s pretty receptive to questions!

Do you have a good-looking, functional desktop of your own to show off? Share it with us!
