Gmail Notifr

A RubyCocoa Gmail Notifier for Mac OS X

Why Another Gmail Notifier?

There's an official Google Notifier for Mac out there. For two reasons I don't like Google Notifier very much:

  • You cannot configure it to check mail every N minutes. Whenever a new message is received, it will notify you. That disturbs.

  • It installs and runs several daemon processes (Google Updater for example) without asking you. What's even worse, these processes remain after uninstalling Google Notifier.

There's an alternative great free Gmail notifier GmailStatus, which I've been using for a while. It is really good.

When I started learning RubyCocoa recently, an idea came out: why not write a Gmail Notifier in RubyCocoa?

So here comes Gmail Notifr.

Requirements

  • Mac OS X 10.5+ (Leopard)
