Write text in back of any Cocoa app window.

Overview

Graffiti lets you flip any window in a Cocoa application over and write text on the back. You can save this text to a file. In order to use Graffiti, you have to download and install SIMBL.

What's new in Graffiti

Version 0.4:
  • Japanese Localization (Thanks E-WA and t-blade!)
  • Rudimentary support for associating text with windows (For now, this only works for Cocoa applications using NSDocument or the NSWindow frameAutosaveName feature.)
  • I guess I am working on this some more, after all

This works great! I don't know when it'll come in handy, but it's pretty cool!

Send me the crash log (/Users/YOU/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/TheApplicationThatCrashed.crash.log) at ian@ianhenderson.org and I'll see what's happening. Until then, just remove Graffiti from the SIMBL plugins directory. It might be conflicting with something else that's trying to load (e.g., APE).

To developer: Me and my colleague have modified it to be fully-localizable (i.e. made menu item strings which were hard-coded in 0.3 editable), and added Japanese localization. Is it okay to release it as 0.31 or 0.4?

If you don't mind, though, could you send me the source, as I may actually add more to this (I wasn't really expecting as many people to like it as actually did :).

To developer: Thanks for the 3 versions anyway, I still think it's neat and I'm glad it found its way here.

Neat hack. Fun. Gripes: 1. Terminal won't flip back! 2. New menu item takes too much space. 3. F7 doesn't work on PowerBook--already used for monitor switching. Suggestions: 1. Change window title to reversed letters to complete the illusion. 2. Shorten menu name from "Graffiti" to just "G". 3. Use a different (user-selectable) keyboard shortcut--F12 maybe? Looking forward to an improved version...

1) Huh, strange. I'll make it disable itself in Terminal.app. 2) Ok, I'll add a preference. 3) You can use "fn" (I actually use a PowerBook too), but I'll add some preferences for the next release.

Thanks for the quick response! Downloaded v0.3 & it fixed most of the issues I raised. (Terminal still flips, doesn't flip back though.) Since you apparently weren't the one that put this on MU, do you have any qualms about it becoming a SourceForge project? One great use of this little hack is as a "Boss" key. If someone (boss or otherwise) starts snooping at your screen, just hit the hot key and watch his/her reaction! Thanks again.

It would be cool if the text was metadata that got associated with the window's file on disk, but as it is, it's pretty useless.

I don't understand the point of this. It just turns any window into a text field. Why would I possibly want to use this instead of, say, opening a new BBEdit window?

Very inventive extension, would be nice if i could remove the Graffiti menu via some preferences or config file.
