Lowercase Date Geeklet

Hey Jehan,

I'm a huge fan of your work with geeklets and I'm using your MLB standings geeklet now. I've actually modeled my desktop after your Baltimore one that you put on Flickr in May. (Except I'm a Nats fan).

Anyway, my question is how did you get the date to display in lowercase? I cannot find a script that does it and its bugging me. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks again for your work!


Hey, Luke! Thanks for the kind words! The geeklet is pretty simple. It’s just:

date '+%A, %B %d' | tr A-Z a-z

Hope that helps. Also, I’d love to see your desktop. Baseball themes in the wild make me happy, even if they aren’t black & orange.
