Desklets are widgets that can be arranged over the desktop for a variety of uses like: updates, todo lists, weather, date and time, decorations, system profiling and much more. You can display the output from shell scripts as plain text with a variety of styles or HTML, like a mini web page. Unlike other shell command apps Desklets uses a bundled file format so you can create packaged scripts with multiple resources that are easy to share. If you’re not a programmer or script savvy, Desklets is still easy to use out of the box and provides an ever expanding library of scripts that don’t require programming experience to customize.
