Projects / nall!


Nall is a small status icon application that discreetly fits into the system tray. Its purpose is to spawn a list of user scripts periodically and display one line of output per script in a tooltip window. Thus, it is possible to "monitor" any kind of event that can be detected with a script. Nall does not care about the return values of the scripts it runs, but only displays their output. It is also easy to interface nall with Nagios plugins.
