Keep an eye on what is happening on your machine and in the World

At a Glance

Übersicht lets you run system commands and display their output on your desktop in little containers, called widgets. Widgets are written using HTML5, which means they

  • are easy to write and customize
  • can show data in tables, charts, graphs ... you name it
  • can react to different screen sizes

The following screenshots give you a glimpse of Übersicht in action:

Rolling your own

Widgets are written in CoffeeScript or plain JavaScript. A minimal widget, written in CoffeeScript looks like this:

command: "echo Hello World!"

refreshFrequency: 5000 # ms

render: (output) ->

style: """
    left: 20px
    top: 20px
    color: #fff
