I have written a small ticker application that displays the current bitcoin price in the systray. It uses the wx toolkit and I use it on Linux, but I guess it could work on OS X and even Windows. It comes with a configuration file that offers some options, and basic bitcoind and electrum integration (getinfo, launch electrum wallets, etc).

It uses python (py3 might work, but I didn't bother to build wx to test it) and a few existing bitcoin-related modules.

Need the hackers in here to confirm this to be 100% secure and safe to run, also would like a windows version if possible lol
Does it update the price all the time or could we set price update time to every 3 minutes or whatever?
If it doesn't use much data and bandwidth I was looking for something like it, nice job.

Not a hacker but I reviewed the code and there are no backdoors.

Thanks, nkuttler. I am using this.

Haha, there's a big disclaimer in the readme, don't run this code without reading it. I'm all for a review, but I'm also working on some updates, right now on a price alert feature (that uses libnotify, which might only be a linux thing).

Unfortunately I'm not a windows user. All I know is that the wx tookit is cross platform, and I'd be happy to apply patches from windows users. I'm not sure how to distribute python scripts as exe, but I guess it shouldn't be too hard for people who use python on windows.

The price updates every five seconds by default, but you can change the timeout in a config file (hm, right, the config file location is hardcoded to something that probably won't work on linux).
