How would I go about embedding a text field on my desktop (or on the Dashboard)? That is:
- I want to be able to type into it.
- It needs to sit behind my windows at all times.
- Text needs to be accessible to system calls (either directly as a bash invocation or indirectly through message passing).
I know I can use GeekTool to display text. Is there a similar program or piece of code that would allow me to do what I want?
I am trying to hack together a twitter/fb/chat client which will not take up a separate window.
