TotalSpaces is great! One flaw is you can't put the name of the current space in the menu bar. Only the number. Here's a workaround, possible because it has an API!
- Install the ruby gem
sudo gem install totalspaces2
- Install TextBar
- Set up a TextBar menu item
ruby -r'totalspaces2' -e 'print TotalSpaces2.name_for_space(TotalSpaces2.current_space)'
- no icon
- command-click drag it to be to the right of the TotalSpaces menu
