Getting Started

If you're comfortable getting up and running from a git clone, this method is for you.

Adding a service

The available services are stored in the ServiceList.js. Structure of a service entry:

Name Description Required
id Unique identifier for the service, e.g. "slack" yes
logo File name of the service logo located in "/resources/icons/", e.g. "slack.png" yes
name Visible name for the service, e.g. "Slack" yes
description A short description of the service, e.g. "Slack brings all your communication together..." yes
url URL of the service, e.g. "https://___.slack.com/". "___" may be used as a placeholder, that can be configured when adding a service. yes
type Defines the type of the service. Must be one of email or messaging. yes
allow_popups Set to true to allow popup windows for the service. no
note Additional info to display when adding the service. no
manual_notifications Set to true to let Rambox trigger notifications. Can be used for services that doesn't support browser notifications. no
js_unread JavaScript code for setting the unread count (see below). no
dont_update_unread_from_title Set to true to prevent updating the unread count from the window title (see below). no

Setting the unread count

While there is also a way to set the unread count by adding (COUNT) to the window title, this describes the preferred way of doing it:

First set dont_update_unread_from_title in the service config to true.

Code provided by js_unread will be injected into the service website. You can retrieve the unread count in this JavaScript code e.g. by parsing elements. Set the unread count by calling rambox.setUnreadCount(COUNT) or clear it by calling rambox.clearUnreadCount().
