  1. PidginSnarl notifications

    Hi All,

    How to configure the maximum number of notifications that can be
    displayed at a time for pidgin. I did not find a setting to do that.

    By default its indefinite I guess, because when there was network
    failure in my office, my whole screen got flooded with notifications
    saying "X Signed Off" , "Y Signed Off" for all the people (of my
    office) who were there in my buddy list.

    There should be a setting to configure this.

    Thanks
    -Arun

    • ThunderSnarl: Lightning

      Click on a lightning notification (event alert) should automatically (or at least allow to) dismiss it

        It’s planned for the next release (even the localization is already embedded in 1.0) but I had to postpone this feature to finally ship 1.0. So planned for 1.1

      • Option to be notified about specific buddies in Pidgin instead of all of them.

        Currently notifications apply to all buddies on your buddy list. It would be great if I could just specify notifications for only certain buddies. With a large buddy list, notifications for every single person can be distracting. I'm only interested in being notified about certain people. Thanks.

          We (and yes, in this case I am not alone :) are now figuraing out how to deal with the plugins config section in Pidgin and when (if…) we figure it out we will add such a functionality

        • pidginSnarl - stall "user logged out" message

          For various reasons some users drop offline and online (it might be rebooting, changing client etc) which creates "user logged out"-messages quickly followed by "user logged in".

          I'm suggesting a mode where it stalls showing the "logged out"-message by 10-15 seconds. If the user hasn't logged back on in this time, the logged out-message will be shown, but if the user returns, the message will be drawn back.

          Simply, I'm suggesting a way to skip the messages which might be unwanted. The idea could probably be refined. :)

          • IRC channel name in notifications

            Hi, I'm starting to use pidginsnarl mostly for IRC. I don't see the name of the IRC channel in the notifications. Is it possible to show this in the popup?
            Thanks! David

            • PidginSnarl: have maximum number of notifications at one time

              Right now, when logging into Pidgin the screen will fill completely with notices entered in a continuous chat. This interferes with other windows for a significant amount of time. It seems the only way to prevent this is putting Snarl into Do Not Disturb mode on startup (or not having it start automatically at all). Limiting the number of PidginSnarl notifications displayed at once would solve the problem.

              • Thundersnarl: allow different sounds to be defined for each folder

                Useful when filters are used to sort new mail into folders and skip the inbox. Have different sounds for folders, or none eg, routine mail (newsletters) can be sorted into filters without sound. Mails filtered into special/priority folders get distinctive sound

                • WeatherSnarl RightButton

                  Can you assign "Show current weather" to left mouse button and "Show forecast" to right mouse button? And maybe do it configurable?
                  Thank you

                  • Filter IRC messages

                    Hi, is it possible to select certain messages by applying a filter of some sort and make them appear differently? For instance I'd like to make messages that contain my name sticky, so I don't miss them.

                    • PidginSnarl: disable when away

                      I would be nice if Pidgin stopped sending Snarl notifications when I set my status to away. Sometimes I just want to get work done and don't want friends to IM me, the snarl notification is kinda distracting.

                      • Thundersnarl: Provide freeform macro for short folder name (like Inbox)

                        Several versions ago, there was a value for the 'freeform' notification called %originalfolder, which contained just the name of the folder in it, like "Inbox", or "Banking". The %folder macro gives the long folder name, and looks like "imap://username@mailserver/Folder". Can you make %originalfolder available again?

                          Yes, I remember that setting. The interface within Thunderbird changed between TB 1 and 2 and the available information did so too.

                          But I think I can parse the long string by myself and give you access to a shorten one. Planned for next update now

                        • PidginSnarl: On Login notifications

                          Until now you have "... on startup" classes to avoid flooding on Pidgin start. As alternative some classes for "... on login" would be great to catch those fired when you log in later to an account

                            I really understand you want to have it but as the API is limited in this case we would need to create quite an amount of new code to detect this case ourself.

                            Anyway as this would be lovely feature I set status to planned for the next bigger coding round on PidginSnarl

                            • Gmail Notifier

                              I like the Gmail Notifier for Snarl but I'd like to suggest using the gmail icon as the tray icon & have it change color on new mail. That way you can tell if there is new mail if you weren't at the computer when the snarl notify popped up. With the current icon the change on new mail isn't easy to see . If you use the Gmail envelope icon you could do blue or red for new mail & grey when there is no new mail.

                                Makes 100% sense and I will add this with the next release. But to be sure with Copyright I think I will take different icons – but you will see if there are new or not :)

                              • open in new window option for rss items

                                It would be great to have the option to click on a snarl notification for a single rss item to open it in a new window. Or even better, open it in the main window. Because "focus the main window" does not actually open the item in the main window. Otherwise, thundersnarl is brilliant.

                                • Make the Silent Install Silent

                                  When installing PidginSnarl using /S for a silent install (I'm installing it with a script) I'd love it if it //didn't// show the "Installed successfully" popup notification. Could that be implemented or is there an easy way for me to hack it away myself? Right now the script just closes it but that's not really optimal :)

                                  ...thanks for a great plugin by the way!

                                  • investigate a memory leak

                                    I am fairly certain that the latest version of PidginSnarl has a memory leak. I have closely observed Pidgin's behavior with and without the plugin enabled and its memory usage sky rockets only when PidginSnarl is enabled. Within one 24 hour period the memory usage can go up as high as 100 mb. Eventually it causes Pidgin to crash.

                                    I am using the Pidgin 2.6.4, GTK 2.14.7, and PidginSnarl 2.0.

                                    • PidginSnarl: In Snarl R4.0 beta 5, unable to Enable/Disable Buddy Signon

                                      With Snarl R4.0's web interface, the Enable/Disable links for the option "Buddy changed status to available / online" the "/" is read as a literal slash and confuses Snarl.

                                      If I copy the link for Enable/Disable and change the "/" to "%2F", the setting will be enabled/disabled correctly.

                                        I have asked Chris to fix it in Snarl as a general solution is better than patching clients. Even more if I don’t have any Windows nor build environment anmyore…

                                      • PidginSnarl: notification concerning merged "contact" instead of "buddy"

                                        Pidgin allows merging several "buddies" in the same "contact". But notifications only consider "buddies".
                                        For example, if a friend has an MSN account and a Yahoo msgr one, there are two "buddies" but only one "contact". So he is showed only once in Pidgin buddy list. Also, I can contact him disregarding the used IM system.

                                        I have several such merged contacts (actually, my company is changing its IM system so most of us have two accounts).
                                        But each time one of my colleague logs on, I get 2 identical notifications, one for each IM account.

                                        Would it be possible…

                                          No problem – deleted all the other :) Not sure if the Pidgin API gives me this feature where I grab the notifications for Snarl.

                                          BTW you can select in Snarl to not show double notifications (if two of the same come directly after each other)

                                        • PidginSnarl: Strip HTML from Snarl Notifications

                                          One of my plugins (prpltwtr) embeds a lot of HTML in the incoming messages I get in Pidgin. When I get a snarl notifications, it contains all sorts of links (some http:// and some prpltwtr:// ). Can all HTML (a href=XXX at least) be stripped out?
