Announcing Twitgit, a Dashboard widget for Twitter
. Updated: .
I’ve been working for a week or so now on learning to build Dashboard widgets for Mac OSX. I’ve got one for the rather incredible Last.FM in the works, but since it’s quite complex I took time out for something simpler.

Amusingly, the original name, Twidget, was already taken as of about 6 hours before Twitgit’s release. A hasty name change ensued, along with a bit of polish and a few compromises. I’m calling in 0.5, and will try to do a fresh release every few days (give or take) with improvements and then call it ‘done’ in a week. This is what they call buggy software, so please be nice.
The Twitgit page documents a few initial to-dos, so if you’ve got feature requests please take a look there in case it’s already covered (scroll bars are already on the list). Feel free to post feedback here or on the project page.
