πŸŽ„πŸŽ DEV10 πŸŽπŸŽ„: A Christmas Gift for the Best Community on 🌍

Sarthak Sharma on December 25, 2018

Merry Christmas, all you lovely people. 5 days ago, I was sitting in a cafe with my teammate and we were discussing how cool Dev.to is, while I ... [Read Full]

Yo, this is pretty dang cool! The fact that you did it in only 5 days makes it even more impressive.

 
 

I'll try to help out in refactoring the code if I find the time. Holidays are pretty hectic, you know?

I know man. I hope you liked your present though. πŸ˜ƒ

Merry Christmas 😊

 

Does this by any chance work with Linux desktop environments like Gnome, Plasma, and cinnamon? And if not, would you be opposed to me writing a Vala implementation for Linux desktops?

 

It does work. I didn't get enough time to make a build for Linux. But you can check this post. Also feel free to make a Linux version if you want and let me know if I can help in any way. 😊

 

Oh, that's wonderful. I had no idea electron could even be used for shortcuts on Linux. I was a bit disappointed with electron build support for Linux in the past (they only had appimage and Deb targets at that time, they may have changed it). Good to see Linux support has gotten better!

Let me know bro @sarthology If you are able to build it for Linux platform. 😊

Alright! Build worked fine with electron-packager. Had some issues with npm so I used yarn. If you'd like I can provide you with a tarball of the build so you can add it to the release, or you could use docker.

You are awesome man. Please send me the link for a tar file. 😊

I just submitted an issue on GitHub with the link. I'll put it here too.

The "Linux" version is nearly a quarter of a gigabyte and doesn't seem to do anything - I'm not sure what is supposed to happen when I run it?

 
 
 

Good job, looks pretty cool. I like how you've used pigs all over the place. And you seem to be a funny guy with a strange sense of humour: 😊

...the scope of the app was not big enough to demand a framework. Other than that I have used:

  • Electron
 

haha, You got me there. I mean framework like Angular or Reacts.

Hi

No, its not the best community on the ..., its one of the best communities on somewhere.

I actually dislike js, electron, and all other cool stuffs in JavaScript, but great app. Hope to get better and bigger. πŸ‘πŸ‘Œ

 
 
 

Supporting all platforms out of the box?! You sly dog.

 

That’s why have to go for Electron. πŸ₯΄

 
 

If you liked it and you are into productive stuff too, try this.

It's fucking great!
But what's a menubar app?
Is it a kind of app for Mac users?

 
 
 

Looks cool but... Electron for a macOS widget? I understand that people use Electron to create cross platform apps without learning C++ (Qt, though there are bindings) or Java (JavaFX in particular) or something else, but imo using it for a macOS-only toolbar widget is an overkill.

 

It's a kind of trend man.😊
Also, This app can work cross-platform. There are many other cool menubar apps that you can find in the following list. I got my inspiration from here only.

I didn't see the Windows release, sorry. Yet I'm still with my opinion about 60/130MB for a toolbar pop-up.

I agree with you man. It's just an experiment. I had only 5 days to complete it. That's why I choose Electron, as Javascript in my stack. Hope, This can inspire someone to create a native app. 😊

Also, here is Window's release.

I think it would be pretty cool to treat this as a canary in the coal mine for the β€œofficial” DEV toolbar built natively and minimally.
