WMTime is a Window Maker dock app that displays the time and date and gives you some nice additional features too. It provides a realtime morphing interface (analog <> digital mode), auto-scaled and anti-aliased hands, localization that displays the day and date in various languages, and three user-defined launch commands.
Ticker.app is just like a ticker, and is designed in the dockapp that is supported by X window managers such as Window Maker, AfterStep, BlackBox, and Enlightenment. It reads a file that is specified by the command line, and displays each line in a viewing area periodically. It rereads automatically when the file has been modified. If you run in a tail-mode, it ticks only the last line.
