          The droid you’re looking for is the ScreenSaver framework.

          Some words of warning:

          • The current screen saver architecture relies on an old plug-in model, one that Apple is working to eliminate across our systems because it has fundamental limitations.

          • Specifically, it’s only recently become feasible to build a screen saver in Swift.  See this thread for details (specifically, my 11 Oct 2017 and 15 Jan 2020 posts).
