Few days back, a project named bitbar app was launched, which lets you put the output from any script or program right in your Mac OS X menu bar. The app was trending on many famous sites like HackerNews, ProductHunt, Panda, etc. and is worthy of such recognition. That day onwards, my web browsing behaviour has certainly changed. Being a technocrat and open-source enthusiast, I like browsing awesome trending stuff each day on various popular sites like Github, ProductHunt, Dribble, etc. I use Panda for this. But I have a bad habit of peeping whenever I build something and post it on the above mentioned sites. So, just to prevent opening and viewing stats in window each time, I really appreciate the idea of having the things which require your utmost attention directly into your viewport i.e. Mac OS X menu bar
I couldn’t wait much for the third-party bitbar-plugins to have support for all my greedy needs. And thus, my thirst landed into coding one for myself. Please don’t judge me being obsessed with social media hypocrisy ;)
Stars Count on Github Repositories - It lists all the created Github repositories(not the forked ones) with the stars count just right to it.
Votes Count on ProductHunt Post - It lists all the users posts along with the number of votes till now.
Scripts for both the plugins also show a notification bell in the Mac OS X menu bar itself whenever there’s a change in number of stars on any repo and change in votes count on any producthunt post respectively. Crazy, isn’t it? :B
