If someone is looking for a desktop windows widget to see the prices for any cryptocurrency I created a widget/ticker that can show details for any coin added to CoinMarketCap and it is open source and free to use.

You can download it and see detailed installation steps at http://cryptocurrencyticker.info/.

Feel free to check it out, any feedback is appreciated!

Quoted just for visibility. Clean and nice design of the widget and the website is nice to navigate, good work. Maybe I'll give it a try.

While I applaud the effort that was probably put into this, do not run programs on your computer when you don't know where they're coming from. That said, the source code is on GitHub and it should be easy to look through and see that nothing malicious is going on here.

Edit: On a first look though the git repo I didn't find anything suspicious, but I encourage others to do the same.

That is the benefit of open-source, anyone can check out the code and see if the software is doing something malicious! Both my ticker and Rainmeter (the software used to display the ticker on Windows) are open-source, safe and free to use. If you decide to try out the ticker and have any suggestions, I would be happy to hear them.

Damn dude, I never knew you could actually make create stuff like this with Lua. The source code looks comparatively easy. Can you link us to the Linex source files inside the repo? I can't seem to find it. Additionally, you could add some sort of button which helps to add new coins easier.

For the Linux mint desklet, there is a different repo as they have a native solution for creating widgets, you can check it out here: https://github.com/pbojan/cryptocoins-desklet-cinnamon

I will look into if it is possible to make adding new coins easier. Thanks for the feedback.
