--INTRO--- Hello and welcome to my little app I wrote that puts an icon in your system tray and tells you when you have new messages on Reddit. It's pretty simple and straight forward. Here is an example of what it looks like: http://github.com/PhillipTaylor/reddit_monitor/blob/0364546e605ce73c9b3fc25d8dc0bbd91f59b014/Demo.png --REQUIREMENTS-- The requirements for this application are: - Systems that use GTK - Python 2.x - simplejson python module --OPTIONAL FEATURES-- - pynotify, for nicer pop-ups - gnome-python2-gnomekeyring for secure password convenience. - xdg-open guesses your prefer browser more accurately. --DOWNLOADING-- To get the program you can either download the source code using the "download" button above or you can use the git link. There are no binaries and no need for them. --INSTALLATION AND SETUP-- There is nothing to compile and it runs from your home directory. --USAGE-- There are basically two python files. One does the work of communicating with reddit and one does the GTK sys tray stuff. ./reddit.py <USERNAME> tells you the karma and comment karma of a user, e.g. [phill@phillfed reddit_monitor]$ ./reddit.py philluminati User philluminati has 94 karma and 6013 comment karma [phill@phillfed reddit_monitor]$ ./reddit.py joelthelion User joelthelion has 6065 karma and 3876 comment karma Pretty simple eh? DWM users can pipe this into their status bar or this can be used in other ways. As well as telling you karma it can also tell you if you have new mail. To do this use the -m option. You will be prompted for your Reddit password [phill@phillfed reddit_monitor]$ ./reddit.py -m philluminati Your reddit password please: False False means :-( True means yay! As I said there is a tray icon version. Just run: ./reddit_tray_icon.py Fill out the dialog and that's pretty much all there is to it. Anyway I hope you guys enjoy this. Phillip (Philluminati) Taylor --DISCLAIMER-- Use of this application may completely and utterly destroy any chance of you ever doing any work again. Use with caution. --KNOWN BUGS-- 1. When the program scraps reddit to tell you if you have new mail it inadvertently marks new mail as having been read. We are currently speaking to Reddit about this. 2. Reddit login process looks obfusicated. My app can't verify your password or username are correct so please type them carefully. Test with .reddit.py -m if you have troubles. --LICENSE-- GNU GPL version 3 --TESTED AGAINST-- Fedora 9, GNOME, x86_64 Fedora 10, KDE 4+, 32 bit Fedora 11, GNOME, x86_64 Fedora 11, Awesome, x86_64 Debian Sid, GNOME, i586 Debian Sid, Awesome, i586 --ABOUT THE AUTHORS-- Phillip (Philluminati) Taylor 25 years old B.Sc. HONS Software Engineering I currently write Python code professionally for a Gambling company in London. It's all web based so excuse my GTK stuff. --GETTING INVOLVED-- Please feel free to submit patches to add support where needed or other features. Also, note, there is absolutely no way I'm going to contribute to a piece of software that is designed specifically to game Reddit. That is strictly not our intention.
