I would like to introduce my latest project, wallDent, to everyone. wallDent is a script that turns your desktop wallpaper into an identi.ca or Twitter timeline.
wallDent currently provides support for both Twitter and identi.ca. It also allows you to choose whether to display a timeline of all the messages from people you subscribe to, or to only display replies to your messages. Another nice feature is that wallDent will display any message that contains your name in red. You can also choose how often wallDent updates (defaults to every minute).
Right now, the script still has several bugs in it. However, I wanted to open this project up to the public in order to get some feedback on it. The script is currently available in a bzr branch on Launchpad: https://code.launchpad.net/~nhandler/walldent/trunk. Please read the whiteboard, as it provides important information about how to use the script. I will be adding a proper README file later.
Please do not hesitate to let me know what you think of the script or to inform me of a bug or feature suggestion. You can add a comment to this blog post, send me a message on identi.ca (@nhandler), or file a bug against walldent on Launchpad.
