  1. 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 :)

    • 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.

      • FileSystemSnarl: Notify on "folder empty" and "file/folder has stopped changing"

        The primary reason for these two options is for when I'm working with large video captures.

        1. When I'm done capturing video from a device to a local hard drive, I will move all the capture files to a network drive. This can sometimes take 2+ hours so I'd like to be notified when the move is complete.

        2. When capturing video (say from VHS tapes of vacations in preparation for eventually putting on DVD), I don't always know in advance how long it will take. So I'd like to have an option where I can say:"I've started writing files…

          After having thoght now for some days about it (and howto handle it as it is a “non-event” I need to look for I think I now have a solution how to do it – but give me some time :)

        • ThunderSnarl: On Click actions

          Work on improving On Click actions. Left click, in practice, always and only closes the notification for me, regardless of the setting I choose. I can successfully set ThunderSnarl to mark messages in various ways, or make them sticky, with a right or middle click. Can't seem to set ANY way to click them to make T-bird program the focus. That would be the MOST important action, IMHO. :-)

          • 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

            • 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

              • 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

                • 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.

                  • PidginSnarl: do not disturb means do not disturb

                    I suggest that when the user selects this mode, no Snarl notifications should be issued. I personally don't use this mode a lot, but it only makes sense that the plugin does this. =)

                      Makes sense and would be very easy to implement I think. I wonder if we shouldn’t make it optional which brings me back to my long not really started to have preferences with the Pidgin plugin itself

                    • 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

                      • 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 - 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. :)
