I'm writing a program for NANY 2008
which i would like to interface with Samuraize
in order to give the user the option to have the desktop show some occassionally (not often) changing stats from the program.
I don't have much experience with Samruaize
but it seems like it might be a good solution for me.
So basically i can have my program create a text file somewhere whenever the stats change. And i can have it run some commandline "update signal" exe if that helps, or send a windows message, etc.
The text will be something like:
Stat Value 1: 39847234
Stat Value 2: 7894
Stat Value 3: 34999
Stat Value 4: 9843453
But i'm basically looking for some help figuring out a general way in which a program can tell samuraize to display a text file in a nice user-customizable way on the desktop.
Anyone with any experience with this? I don't know if it's as simple as configuring an existing samuraize plugin, or writing a new one.
Or maybe even someone has a different suggestion instead of samuraize? Perhaps a lightweight coding snack program which shows text on desktop would be something someone wants to write to avoid needing samuraize?
