File this one under: probably useless, but fun.
I recently updated
desktoppr with the feature to control the scaling of a custom desktop picture. Because a scaled desktop picture might not cover the entire screen, macOS also allows you to choose a custom color to fill the remaining area.
desktoppr v0.3 can be used to control both of these settings.
So, I thought I could use this to just set a random single color as the desktop background, similar to how I did it for Terminal windows.
macOS does not allow you to set no desktop picture. So I created a PNG file that is only a transparent background. This image is basically an invisible desktop picture and all you see on screen is the fill color. Then, you can set any fill color with
I have added a
randombackgroundcolor script to the examples in the
desktoppr repository on GitHub.
It’s a bit silly, but also kind of fun. Enjoy!
