Hardware Growler 1.1.1 Dock Icon

Post by YourMom »

Com'on Devs. Make it so the Dock icon can be hidden. Please? If I were a dev, I would do it, but I am not.

The .plist hack doesn't work with the new version and I don't want to install a 3rd party app to do it either.

Please and Thank you...

The plist "hack" should work fine, since that's how os x is setup.

There's no reason we can't wrap an interface around the hack to make this activity simpler.
Try my software!

I would be most grateful if HG was updated to include this.

Do you think it is difficult to implement?

BTW, I figured out why I couldn't get the plist hack working. I forgot the Terminal "Touch " step. Now it works.

Cheers!

I don't think so, but I'm not making any promises either :)

Ya, I agree, it's quite silly that we don't have it.

http://buttered-cat.com/products/view/MetaGrowler might be another option. I haven't looked at it.

hardware growler is definitely better than metagrowler.

Just use the program Dockless to painlessly hide HG from the dock.

the only thing HG could borrow from metagrowler is bonjour services. Otherwise HG does more than metagrowler.

I'm surprised this was also never done for GrowlTunes as well

GrowlTunes Plugin (GTP), the successor to GrowlTunes, will be invisible since it's a plugin for iTunes and only appears in there.

And rocks harder. And does more. And is configurable. And is nice. :)
