Very good. I've been looking for something simple like this for a while. Thanks. As potential future features; Growl integration would be great An option to temporarily disable notifications (i.e. when you want to get some work done and don't want to get distracted by revisiting your answers etc!) A 'run on startup' option Maybe have the default menubar ...

I like the current logos of SENotifier, but, I was bored, and decided to have a go at making some SENotifier logos as well. And, well, here they are! Tell me if you like them, or any comments! I don't know if the pictures will keep their formatting, though. Oh well. 1). (.png) 2.) (.icns)

Any way of porting this to iOS?

status-completed Can somebody please port this to Firefox? I would definitely appreciate it. FF Desktop Notification support: https://code.google.com/p/ff-html5notifications/

I don't believe that that route accepts POST requests (as it's non-actionable), so you should have better luck sending a GET request instead. Routes that require auth tokens necessitate HTTPS, but still expect GET for read requests, and POST for writes.

It would be really nice if somebody could rewrite this as a Greasemonkey script using Desktop Notifications, so that I could use this with Firefox. In case that last part left you thinking that there's something wrong with me, take a look at this. :)

I added support for OSX Notification Center and made a pull request.

This is not possible in api-2.2, but it might be made available in 2.3. Semi-source: I had an email exchange with someone from the android app team, who then talked to the api team. It's not on 2.2 but they're "open to moving it to the 2.3 API release".

Update: Op followed the advice, below, and changed the question from a bug to a feature-request. This is not really a bug. Right at the top of the API documentation, it states that the API is read-only, in bold letters: Stack Exchange API v2.0 This is the documentation for the v2.0 read-only (with optional authentication) Stack Exchange API. If ...

An inbox message body is not the same as a post body. Inbox messages are truncated by design. Here's a snippet of my inbox: Notice how the "body" is truncated at 100 characters? (Counting the ... and accounting for HTML entities like '.) The results I get from /2.2/me/inbox?filter=!SmOhH2b13NujlyyXX6 are exactly the same: "body": "Very good....

You should use /inbox instead, which is a network route instead of a site-specific one. As mentioned in the documentation, the site-specific route is mostly just provided for convenience of consumers working in a single-site context. Even then it doesn't seem particularly useful, but meh. To answer your question in regards to why site is required there, it'...

The documentation was updated sometime in the last 2 years and the API docs (version 2.2) now state that the property may be absent:

I really like this too. It is great! I second @pastylegs' comment. Growl notifications would be very nice. I also wanted to add another comment. If you look at the SE inbox on the actual website, you'll notice that it displays past, read notifications: It would be nice to have several (maybe 5 or so) read notification in the menu bar. I find myself going ...

Er… I’m sorry, but I don’t speak robot. I know enough about computers to get by, more than most civilians, but I was wondering if you could dumb the answer to my problem a lot for me please? The SENotifier for OX was working perfectly until today, when I took my computer away from my house, and wifi. I’m not sure if disconnecting from the internet had ...

I've been recently running into a problem with SENotifier where it updates when a message is directed at me, but it always shows an old message rather than the lastest message.

Bug report here. It's not working on CoreDuo MBP/10.6.8 I suppose because it's 64-bit only but you didn't mention system requirements anywhere here.

The URL in the link field is sufficient to uniquely identify an inbox message. Each kind of notification has a different format of URL, and you only get one inbox notification per event.


2

This should be fixed now, we weren't properly considering the since parameter when fetching results from the cache. In effect if you ever asked for unread inbox items twice, once with and once without since, you'd get the same result back until the cache cleared.

There is no difference and... The inbox has always been "The global inbox". Certainly for as long as the API has existed. So any inbox route will be Stack Exchange wide, even if it accepts a site parameter. If you look at the doc for the /users/{id}/inbox/unread route, it says: This method is effectively an alias for /inbox/unread. It is provided for ...

Provided you don't do anything "evil" (which basically means leaking user messages to people/apps they haven't authorized), we have no objections to a generic push service. Yes, the per-minute throttle is for the same request; changing the parameters counts as separate requests. Do note that the 30 requests/second cutoff is by IP (it's a DOS prevention ...

1) Answer is already in the inbox_item object. Note the entry for item_type in the doc page: one of comment, chat_message, new_answer, careers_message, careers_invitations, meta_question, post_notice, or moderator_message new_answer is returned whenever a new answer is posted to one of the authenticated user's questions. 2) edit_suggested is returned as ...

As described in the /me/inbox documentation, the route is ...effectively an alias for /inbox. It is provided for consumers who make strong assumptions about operating within the context of a single site rather than the Stack Exchange network as a whole. Since it's just more or less a convenience route for the global /inbox method, it doesn't actual ...

A fix for this will go out with the next build.

feature-request I'd like to request that the app detects when night mode is enabled under general system preferences and switches the icon to a white color. This is what the icon currently looks like: ... too dark. :( I also created issue #26, on GitHub, for this.

Version 1.3 Update I have updated all the icons to make it look much better. You can check out the source code and download the DMG here: https://github.com/josephyoon/senotifier

I have forked your source code, and enabled Retina display support. I have also recreated all the icons. Check it out on GitHub.

This is an awesome app, great job. But I think you forgot to make the extra text after "Check Now" change white when you hover over it, see: I'm not a Mac App Developer (not yet, anyway) so I don't know if it is possible to change that but I just wanted to let you know about that.
