Smiley Happy Software has released a new app for Mac users, Shh 1.0. Shh is a utility designed for displaying custom status information via a menu bar. The app ships with user-defined BSD commands for shell operators. According to Smiley Software:
Yesterday Smiley Happy Software released Shh 1.0 for Mac OS X. Shh is a status-bar menu that executes user-specified BSD commands and displays the output as menu items to be read or copied to the Clipboard. These commands will typically be used for obtaining customized status information updated with every use.
Shh is unique because it is not limited to what is already programmed into it. With the proper command sequence, one can obtain virtually any sort of status information and keep it just a mouse click away.
Users can enter any commands supported by their systems, whether they are supplied by Apple or installed separately. Shh passes commands to the Bourne shell for execution, so it supports shell operators such as pipes ("|").
You can find more information about the Shh! release at the Smiley Software Web site. Shh! 1.0 is available for US$5.00.
