This is what I'm working on.

Python and Node.js - daily quote to your wallpaper

I've wanted to play around with both Python and Node.js for a while now. This quick project was a good excuse to dive in.

The project is made up of two pieces. The first part is a small Python script that will update your Windows wallpaper with a random quote each time it's run, like this:

The second piece is a Node.js script that actually serves up the quotes as json. This part is meant to be run on a web server somewhere, but can be run locally for testing purposes.

Source is available on github.

Have fun with it!
