Ticker.app is a ticker dockapp based on wmticker written by Jiro SEKIBA. Ticker.app reads a file that is specified by the command line, and displays each line in a viewing area periodically. When the file has been modified, it was reread automatically.

If you run in a tail-mode, Ticker.app ticks only the last line. Another area to display is a popup window that may be opened by clicking the up arrow button. You can skip to next line by clicking the right allow button, and controll the viewing area by dragging the horizontal scrollbar or the mouse wheel.
