As always, I'm interested in what other guys are doing with their tools.
This time I just wanted to see your desktop home screen.

Use the command:

Depending on a file I might just do a search within Finder to look for it. Eventually, all memes/funnies go into a folder and things look nicer for a week or two.

Just put the .py file on your desktop and run it from terminal --> python cleanup.py

It is a combination of small tweaks:

You'll need Rainmeter (for the time display), translucentTB (see-through taskbar) and here some links for the wallpaper and the icons that I made.

You may be wondering how my Desktop is so clean... Well, I use this command (for Mac only):

defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop -bool false;killall Finder

It means that all the stuff on your Desktop will no longer show up! (but still be accessible from Finder)

You have Chrome and FF on both desktop and taskbar. Why?

Collapse
fgiraldi profile image
fgiraldi

Lol, I agree, it looks like a mess. Right now, netBeans is my IDE. I'm trying Visual Studio Code, but the majority of my work is developed under Windows and, I kinda like it. Besides that, we don't use the most top-end technogolies (we don't even use git), so it works for me as is.
Calc is just a fast solution bringer. It's a custom.
Regarding to CH and FF, I used to use FF as my personal web browser and CH as my development browser. I loved FF extensions in his time. Now things has changed, but FF still remembers lots of my pswds. I'm migrating everything to CH but it will take some time. By now, I still use boths, but Chrome is gaining terrain.
