  1. Set height and width of notification

    I'd like to fit the notifications on a tiny screen. Fullscreen option for the notifications could work for me too.

    • Can you add Microsoft Lync to Snarl?

      We use Lync at work and I'd like to use Snarl for notifications when I receive a chat, etc... rather than utilizing the default lync notifications. Is this possible?

        This has been in progress for a while but, with a very poor API from Microsoft, it’s not in a suitable position to release. I have an app which will alert you to contact status changes but nothing that will alert you to new IMs.

        • Throttle notifications, particularly if an app has just started up...

          When starting up Pidgin, for example, if you auto join a chat and it has a large history, Snarl can become responsive for several minutes as hundreds of notifications fill the screen. It's quite annoying, to the point where I no longer have Snarl start automatically, rather starting it by hand after Pidgin has connected everywhere. It seems to me that Snarl could throttle a flood of messages to the screen, perhaps via a user configurable setting.

            • Enable snaRSS to use a proxy

              I would like to use snaRSS to monitor a feed that I can only reach via a proxy. Could you add options to let me configure one?

              • Powershell module

                In corporate environments would be very useful to have a Powershell module to allow viewing of notifications during the execution of scripts, like the one that already exists in Growl.

                • make notification slide down a slot if the previous notification fades

                  Notifications stack well and then disappear after a set amount of
                  time, some notifications don't disappear (like downloads for firefox -
                  i want them to stay) but it looks really ugly as they just float where
                  they first spawned with the notifications under it disappearing. Is
                  there a way to make them slide down a slot if the previous
                  notification fades?

                    This has been requested many times, however it’s more complex than it might seem – especially with varying sized notifications. I’m still considering how best to implement it however.

                  • Specify screen per registered application/event

                    Title describes the request and hopefully it should be fairly do-able considering Snarl's already got this covered through the main interface as a global option

                    • Always on top option

                      Currently when I play a game or watch a movie the notifications do not show through. I would like the option to have Snarl appear at all times.

                          A Linux client capable of receive notifications via the SNP protocol or as alternative forwarding via a protocol which is understood on the Linux side (i.e. DBUS/libnotify hook in/etc)

                          • Weather notification

                            It would be neat to have a weather notification plug in that would show the forecast and current temperature for user-selected cities.
