Steem Price on OSX Statusbar

in Python2 months ago (edited)

I was surfing the Github, then found an interesting project; Rumps. It's a framework to develop OSX status bar applications with ease. Of course, my first experiment was implementing a STEEM price ticker. 🤓

It's a really simple Python script, compiles into a MacOS APP, and updates the STEEM price in every five minutes. Having it at the status bar saves a lot of time if you check the price via a website like @coingecko or CMC, normally.


 $  python3 -m venv steem-statusbar
 $  source steem-statusbar/bin/activate
 $  git clone
 $  cd steem-osx-statusbar/
 $  pip install py2app rumps requests
 $  python py2app
 $  open dist/

I didn't package the app as a distributable app, so you'll need to do these all steps and Python3 to run it. However, in the next versions, I'll also ship a "Download & Run" kind of executable. (I have plans to add VP/DP and more information there at the end.)
