Stylish Windows – Bithaus

Stylish Windows

NSWindow. Very flexible stuff. It’s used *everywhere*. I mean it, everywhere, look for yourself, hit cmd-shift-4 and then press the spacebar. Move that camera icon around, over Desktop icons, Dock items, Menu Extras, etc, etc. Everywhere.

Pretty versatile.

But most of us still just use what IB provides. Matt Gemmell released TunesWindow a while back and it provided a great solution to making something a bit more unique. I just thought it could be even more flexible so I built StyledWindow based on it. (thanks Matt!)

And since John Gruber delivered the obituary on the Apple HIG at C4 (and everyone is talking about it: Daniel Jalkut, Uli Kusterer, Michael Tsai, Scott Stevenson, et al), it seems time to release this so everyone can now define their own HIG.

Download and Enjoy. now available on GitHub <30 Apr 2013>

  1. This would work like a dram with the iLifeControls framework. Your window seems to handle re-sizing better too

  2. […] All the way from the land of Bithaus, Ganyard brings us “Stylish Windows“. This isn’t as feature-packed as the iLifeControls, but is a little more flexible with it’s coloring and size of the top and bottom bars. Personally, I don’t really think I would find a use for this, but some of you may find this helpful. […]
