Vinyl + Text Desktop (Mac)

Ilango’s Vinyl Desktop inspired this look - I saw it and thought, “I need to get that look on my Mac”. In the end, I wanted to go with a lighter wallpaper to contrast my dark color scheme, and chose Übersicht over GeekTool because I’m better with CSS than whatever GeekTool uses.

I’m using several different widgets to display system info on the right hand side - memory and HDD info on the upper right and current CPU load + load chart on the lower right. I’ve also put a simple music info widget on the lower left, and rounded off the look with a precisely-placed word clock widget.


To build this desktop, I used the following assets:

Anyways, that’s my desktop. Hope you hate it!
