Holiday lights for MacOS X. Just launch and find yourself getting into the spirit of the season. The lights hang from the menu bar and will stay just above the desktop and under everything else. Adds a festive mood to any computer.
Very small (just over 300k), very process friendly (won't slow you down) and very festive.
To add new light styles, simply name the new lights 1On.png and 1Off.png. Then put these image files into ~/Library/Application Support/XMas Lights and they will be found when you open the preferences panel. You can string together multiple lights by naming them sequentially as On and Off. As an example, I have two lights to string together, and I name them MyCoolLights1On.jpeg, MyCoolLights2On.jpeg, MyCoolLights1Off.jpeg, MyCoolLights2Off.jpeg.
If this makes you smile at all, drop me a line at email@example.com and let me know! And thanks to our users for providing more light styles. Thanks also to Jason Hayes (firstname.lastname@example.org) for his enthusiastic help with ideas, code and artwork.
Idea from the great Classic 68k Control Panel from Robert L. Mathews - "Xmas Lights 1.1" which was last updated in 1993. Thanks, Robert, for the inspiration.
