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 ...
Not working for Windows (8x64)
Firstly, download links for latest 1.6 are dead
I've installed 1.5 and it doesn't show the list of sites
Find User even doesn't work.
And without the site list, even if I enter my userID it doesn't "Add Account"
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.
StackEye v2.0 brings another great feature viz Follow users on all StackExchange sites. Just go to the profile page of the user and click Follow and there you go.
All the Jon Skeet's fans, this feature is for you. Follow him and get informed of all the posts made by him. Keep learning from his great answers and questions. There are too many experts out ...
Is this app still working?
I installed pidgin, added my gtalk account and included firstname.lastname@example.org in the contact list, then I started following the [java] tag, but I'm not getting any alerts even if new java questions are asked.
Am I missing anything?
No, the WebSockets are not officially supported. They are internal to Stack Exchange, use them at your own risk.
If it is at all possible to do your task with the API, use that. That's what it's there for.
Some people have sussed out some of the endpoints. You can see them in the answers to:
How do the Stack Exchange WebSockets work? What are all the ...
StackGuru is great, I was looking for something like this for months.
Still the limitation of 10 tags pe user is far too small, probably I would be interested to have a limit of 100 tags or over.
I know that I could install my own instance, but this would take too much time.
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. :)
Is there a PPA available for stackapplet?
UPDATE Feature request:
Ability to track "tagged questions" => "my filters", its cumbersome to refresh it all the time
I haven't found an app which can do that
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 ...
I have using this for a long time , but I'm not getting any notifications now . I have tried with several tags no luck . I'm on Windows 7, chrome version Version 30.0.1599.69 .
And also I tried re installing...
Could the notifications time out after a certain length, so I don't have to click every single one?
Also, could it be possible to monitor more than one stack exchange site at a time? I watch both SO and UX.
It is surprisingly poor written to me. This are some of the thing that has to be changed:
input tag is self closing - options.html
When using jQuery you should not use document.getElementById, innerHTML - notification.html
function pausecomp(millis) seems like "busy waiting" - background.html
html tags interpreted ( wow )
It is more of a must than ...
I am not sure if this is a bug with Google Talk but I keep getting messages from stackguru in my inbox while I am offline. Instead I would prefer to get them via the chat client when I became available.
Does anyone knows how to tune this?
PS. I do not want to disable my chat history because this is very useful feature.
The 64 bit version tries to install itself in the Program Files (x86) folder. I am on win 7 64 bit on an Intel i5 processor. Since the filename reads amd64 I am assuming that I might as well install the 32 bit version, is this correct?
I have recently become active on Arduino Beta SE and I wanted to have notifs for that on my desktop. However, StackApplet doesn't have that site in the addable (???) sites.
Is this a bug, as I know Beta sites can be added, I have Raspberry Pi working just fine; or is it just because Arduino hasn't been added to the list of sites somewhere?
I came across this when I was looking for a web-based notifier, and it does the job quite well. The one gripe I had with it is that it doesn't use desktop notifications, and I would have to constantly tab back over if I wanted to see what it came up with.
Anyway, I hacked away at it for a few hours and did a basic implementation of desktop notifications, ...
Have been using this for several days now.
Every so often I'll get a bunch of reputation notifications--"a bunch" as in one for every site the app is monitoring. Am I correct in thinking that this is because there's been a network-wide recalc, or is there some other reason for this?
Edit: This is happening several times a day. Obviously not due to a ...
thanks for the app. I do however, feel that it overloads me for two reasons:
it shows me all new questions for a site. Would be much better if I could select the tags for which I want to see new questions;
it flashes too quickly, and I can't look at all notifications. If we could configure the display time, would be awesome, or the display time could depend ...
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 ...
