Tapir for Mac

Developer's Description

Tapir is a powerful but easy-to-use developer tool for Mac OS X. With Tapir, it becomes easy for you to create your own global menu applications, based on UNIX shell commands or scripts. Status items such as memory monitors, workload monitors and process viewers can be created in a matter of seconds, with only a little knowledge of the UNIX command line, while more sophisticated menu applications can be constructed using a scripting language of choice.

Tapir sports a number of useful and easy-to-use features, such as:

  • A simple graphical interface for configuring status menu item applications
  • Control over menu font, size, title, format and/or icon
  • Settings for task timeout and execution interval
  • Configurable actions to perform on menu item selection
  • Script or command execution upon the selection of a given menu item

To see what Tapir is capable of, you can take a quick look at some screenshots of the Tapir interface and of menu applications created with Tapir.
