Nibbble – A Dribbble screensaver

Published on 12/05/2012

About a week ago @markjardine made the following Twitter post:

Someone needs to create a nice quartz composer screensaver displaying dribbble shots. On a related note, I need to learn quartz composer.

As luck would have it, I actually already had a Dribbble-powered screen saver. I’d written it months ago and had been using it ever since. Mark’s tweet prompted me to polish it up and get it ready for release, which I’m doing today! So I’d like to introduce Nibbble – an OS X screensaver that fetches and displays Dribbble’s current popular shots. You can grab it here.

It’s a first release, and as such is fairly green. If there’s enough interest, I’ll look into adding the ability to enter your Dribbble credentials to optionally show you follower shots. Ironically, I’m not much of a graphic artist, so the bundle is without an icon. If someone thinks they can cook up something fun, feel free to drop me a line on Twitter @nialgiacomelli.

If you enjoy Nibbble feel free to repay the favour by checking out my upcoming iOS word game Lumicon.
