  1. 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.

      • 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.

        • Increase the max string length?

          I wanted to use Snarl as a quick and dirty method to output some error logging when something bad happend in a server but my string is too long. Is there a way to increase this by the API?

              • Set a character limit or height limit for notifications

                Might be a good idea to set a character limit or height limit for notifications. This would prevent a single notification from taking too much space on the screen and also to prevent the notification from being partially pushed off the screen.

                    • Download/Update styles and extensions straight from inside snarl

                      That way the latest know version is always installed, simplifying the process for users.

                      If this is done, you could also remove all currently installed styles and extensions except the default, and provide a first run wizard that allows users to choose only what they want to install.
