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 ...
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 ...
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.
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"
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 ...
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 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 ...
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 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.
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, ...
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 ...
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.
I will join others in saying that this is a great application. I do have a few suggestions, though.
Make it clearer for which sites reputation is shown. As far as I can tell, Newt only displays reputation for one's top three sites, but there may be some other heuristics at work, as well.
Include a link to the selected user's network profile.
I've just downloaded the app, entered this for the tags:
And got the following error:
soapi-notify: There was an error retrieving results.
The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request.
Press CTRL-C to exit.
Another issue: if I lose network connectivity and a poll happens, the app will break, and won't reconnect.
If the app ...
Doesn't work in Linux.
Yep, just as the title says, this extension is absolutely, 100% non-functioning on Linux.
After installing, I clicked on its icon, signed in, and saw this success message:
Congratulations, you've been successfully authenticated. Enjoy Stack Exchange Notifier!
Stack Exchange Notifier authorized!
...but the icon still has the ...
The escaping issue has been mentioned already, but I'd just like to accentuate it with a screenshot -
As you can see, the HTML is actually being rendered. In the case of an HTML comment, the content is simply not displayed, but HTML content here is being showed as an un-ordered list item.
Here is a link to the post from the screenshot.
