Palantír aims to be an all-round notification center for MacOS X. While the Palantír App itself doesn't provide any real functionality for the end-user, it is easily extendable through plugins which will be able to provide any feature you can think of, e.g. mail or news feed notifications.


  • A central configuration for the App itself and the plugins
  • A simple plugin interface to create own Palantír plugins

Available Plugins

Right now, there's only one plugin available for Palantír. It's called Macnancy and it's also available as source code here on GitHub.

Future plans

  • A downloadable disk image or installer
  • Sparkle integration
  • Growl integration
  • More dynamic configuration


  • MacOS X 10.5 (Leopard) or newer


There are several ways of contributing to Palantír's development:

  • Build your own plugins for Palantír and spread the word.
  • Report problems and request features using the issue tracker.
  • Write patches yourself to fix bugs and implement new functionality.
  • Create a Palantír fork on GitHub and start hacking.
