The Quote of the Day Screenlet is a tiny python script to display your most favorite quotes on your desktop. Not much more use, I wrote this script just to get familiar with the screenlet sourcecode.

Since version 0.4 it is also possible to use RSS feeds as source for your qoutes.

The snakenet.org quotes can be accessed via: http://snakenet.org/quotes/rss

The Qotd Screenlet depends on the croatoan library ( http://snakenet.org/croatoan )


* 0.6.2
- Merged the Croatoan lib with the actual screenlet, from now on it is not longer necessary to download both the croatoan lib and the screenlet.

* 0.6
- Added font handling for the authors font and for the auote font.
- Added font color handling fot the authors and the quotes font.
- Added Croatoan check at the beginnig of the screenlet: from now on the screenlet will display an error-popup if the croatoan lib is not installed.
- Fixed some minor bugs.

* 0.5
Added 3 new Themes, Red, Red-3D and No background.
Its now possible to disable the quotation marks.
Some small bugfixes.

* 0.4
Added RSS feed support: From now on the Quote File option can also be a link to an RSS Source. For instance from

I downloaded it now. Thanks!
Good, simple screenlet. One more thing I had to download and install was some croatoan lib from your site, to start this screenlet.
If you are still working on this screenlet, then some additional features would be great to add, such as:
-read quotes from rss
-change font
-choose whether to draw background.

To use RSS is a great idea, i just implemented it and i like it a lot, very nice.

I also will implement your other suggestions since i already planed to do some enhancements in the style-sector.

And yes, i forgot to add the information about the Croatoan lib. Unfortunately it has do be downloaded as well because in there i do my whole crawling and time mesurements. Maybe i will make a mini-croatoan version so that the qotd screenlet can be downloaded as one package.

Thanks a lot for your feedback!!

Hey there,
i just merged the Croatoan-Lib into the screenlet tarball, so you won't need to download the lib separately anymore :) just use the screenlet-manager and install it from there and it will run out of the box.
