Projects / MacOSD


MacOSD is a visualization frontend for PBButtonsD, the button and power event daemon used for Apple computers. It utilizes Evas with its anti-aliasing and alpha-blending canvas capabilities for rendering. The less-eye-candy-rich Xosd can also be used to render shaped windows that work over video overlays. The theme format is GtkPBButtons-compatible.
