Counter by Stendec
Counter is a tiny application that displays numbers for live streamers. It's configured with simple text file, and you can customize its appearance with CSS.

At the most basic, all you have to provide is a list of numbers and images. Counter will load the images and make a series of counters, each starting at zero.
Lines that don't start with numbers will be treated as options. Invalid options will be ignored as comments.
The default formatting has Counter use a pure black background with white text. When a number becomes negative, it turns red. When a number matches its goal, it turns gold.
If you know how to use CSS, you can customize the display to use custom fonts, colors, and sizes.
Counter has buttons to reset each line, increment, and decrement the values. However, there are more efficient ways to edit numbers.
- If you click a number, it will open a dialog to let you type in a new value.
- Scrolling the mouse wheel over a line will quickly increment or decrement the value of that line.
- Right clicking brings up a menu that lets you reset all lines at once.

You can make the window a set size using the
sizeoption. This accepts a
widthxheightpair, and will make that the minimum size of the window.
You can also resize the window as you would any normal window. The size of the window is displayed in the window's title bar.
