LEDnotify V2.0.1 – still cooking

I have added so much to V2 that I am still testing and changing…

I plan to release a beta of V2 as V2.0.1.

Most if V2 works, but I need to polish it more, and I have a concern over a new GUI panel I have added to display alerts – it locks the LEDnotify process whilst the GUI is open (So just use it and close it…) – so I will add more threading to improve on that…

Update…

Talking here is like talking in a dark room – you have no idea if there is anyone else in the room, or if they are interested in what you have to say – but it keeps ME entertained…

I am still working on LEDnotify, but am making some changes to the way things work, which is taking me some time to learn how to do things better…   EG, a small diversion into an alternative way of logging messages proved fruitless, but I now understand that area better…  I keep improving all sorts of pieces of code – and LEDnotify can now drive multiple LED units – EG separating different types of alerts to separate units.

But I am still doing battle with tkinter for the GUI parts, and still need to finish the Google Calendar module.

I fancy a Rasperry Pi for Christmas – and get LEDnotify running on there – if only to save running my main PC all the time – and save electricity…

Request for help…

If you have downloaded LEDnotify and tried using it I would love some feedback –

* I know the list of pre-req packages to install on Ubuntu needs updating – it is too easy to install things when I am developing and not record it…
– did you need to install anything ?

* Do you have any comments on :
– the way it works?
– the way it is configured?
– anything else?

 

LEDnotify V2 still cooking

I have made some major changes to the LEDnotify code – some of which did not turn out as I wanted, so I had to back track…  I am still working on this, and will be doing more work and testing before the next release.

It now supports multiple LED units – I have one for email and IMs, and another that I am working on using for Google Calendar alerts.

LEDnotify – in progress…

What started as V1.1.7 lead on to some major rework – so I was aiming for V2.0.0

But this has lead into further work – mostly under the covers, but hopefully it will make it easier to configure, and allow more flexible plugin tasks…

Still some way to go – but as I have had no user feedback, I can take my time and do as I please   🙂

LEDnotify – still working on V1.1.7

I have the Twitter authorisation working well now, I am now playing with what (and how) to alert on Tweets…   Ideas? – please leave me comments…

I have also been adding more to LEDnotify – EG, see the Indicator Applet menu in the screenshot below.   The alert icons are created to reflect the LED colours of the alerts…

I am getting a second LED unit, and will update LEDnotify to direct alerts to which ever one you select.  I will also test NO LED units – as the could be useful for alerting via the Indicator Applet only.   I will get V1.1.7 out first…

I have seen that LEDnotify has been downloaded a few times, but I have yet to have any feedback – please do….

LEDnotify V1.0.0
