Yet Another Gmail Notifier

Gmail Notifr is written in MacRuby with these features:

  • Support multiple accounts.
  • Separate check and notification setting for each account.
  • Preferred browser setting for each account.
  • Support Google hosted account.
  • Check mail at a specified interval.
  • Growl & sound notifications.
  • Small & fast. *
  • Sparkle automatic updates.
  • No background daemon processes installed as Google's official notifier.
  • Open Source & free!

* MacRuby is private framework on Lion, Gmail Notifr needs to embed the framework so the final size is kind of 'big' comparing to RubyCocoa version. Memory usage is bigger (30MB+) due to the same reason.

Requirements

  • Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or higher
  • An Intel 64-bit machine
  • MacRuby 1.0 (nightly build, 2011-07-22 or newer)
  • BridgeSupport Preview 3
