Today i stumbled over a really nice little desktop widget tool called Übersicht. It’s from the developer Felix Hageloh. Übersicht is like the good old GeekTool and displays information aggregated from system commands or internet services directly onto you desktop background. Thereby Übersicht is much easier to modify, because all widgets are written in JavaScript or CoffeeScript and use HTML5 and CSS.

You will find a lot of widgets on his site too.
