See the live Monero price on your Mac menu bar
For security reasons, we didn't want to take the risk of installing any Monero-specific applications to display the price. We therefore created this
tutorial to show you how to install your own Monero menu bar price ticker that is based on open source code.
Step 1: Install BitBar, an open source application which can display content on your Mac menu bar.
Visit the BitBar site here
, then click the 'Get latest' button and click to download the latest
version, which will be called, for example, "BitBar-v1.9.2.zip".
Step 2: Locate the zip file you've just downloaded with Finder. Double click it to extract the "BitBar 2.app". Then drag the "BitBar 2.app"
file to your Applications folder.
Step 3: Double click the "BitBar 2.app" file to run it. You will see 'BitBar' appear in your menu bar. Click it and ensure the
'Open at login' menu option is ticked.
Step 4: Go to the BitBar Monero plugins web page
, locate the plugin you
want to use (e.g. USD Bitfinex), and click 'Add to Bitbar'. Click to approve and you're all done!
The scripts that you are running to display the Monero price are only a few lines long and open source. This means you can easily
verify they are not malicious by looking through the source code here
