Awesome idea, and great implementation already :D
I might download it tomorrow if it's ready to use on Linux.

Not exactly on topic, but why is there two "+1/0" on that post instead of "+2/0" ?
Or maybe there's only one +1/0 but it is displayed twice ?

Cool to hear. I'm gonna give it a try when I have a chance after it came out :) Is it Windows 7 compatible? (I see the theme but I don't remember if Windows 8 allowed you to use Windows 98/XP/7 themes)

Thanks :)
Of course is it Windows 7 compatible (I am running Windows 7 as you see in the screenshot :P). It is compatible to Windows Vista and 8(.1) and all major Linuxes aswell. Mac should work too.

Thanks, Hayleia. Great that you use it on Linux. It should work fine on any Linux, and I already tested it on Ubuntu and Debian so far and it works great there.
Don't forget to install Mono ;)

Hmm, I don't know. Maybe a bug in SMF?

Yeah I was asking since I wasn't sure what Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 used as theme options (eg if we could switch back to Windows Vista style. I know that in Windows 7 we can still use WIndows 95/98 theme)

That's a problem resulting from failed mod install attempts a while ago. We tried to fix it but this pretty much destroyed our SMF install, so we reverted to a backup that had the problem and have yet to fix it. It should not be too hard, though, because it only requires editing a file for the CW theme.

Hey. Do you mind if I fork this to be a configurable notifier for any SMF forum that has the php script running (Specifically, I want to use this for Omni, but making a general solution makes the most sense imo)?
Well, I'm bach here too!

alexgt

Awesome I will definitely download this when it comes out :) :)

I guess it would be a nice idea, since Tapatalk gets worse and worse after each Android update. If Cumred says yes then I guess just make sure to credit him and the original app (maybe link here too?)

Actually, after looking at the php file, the script doesn't necessarily have to be on server. All I have to do is parse the xml file in the notifier, instead of on a server.

EDIT: errr... maybe not. I am no good at php and converting to other languages from php :P
Well, I'm bach here too!

Yeah, Tapatalk really gets worse and worse over the versions.

The script does not have to be running on the same server. It basically only parses the API data that all SMF forums provide by default. Just change the define of the feed url to set it to another forum.
Yeah, I know. But to save the forum server traffic and capacity, to save time and because I like doing heavy string processing and multidimensional array stuff alot more on php than C#.
The script does also parse the feed and strip the html, caches and compress it before sending.

No problem, do whatever you want to do with the code. I licenced it under the MIT Licence. The only two important things are: If you accidentially screw anything up, its not my fault. And it'd be nice if you leave a small comment in the code that says that I made the base of it (It would be nice, but you don't have to ;)).

The latest main UI is looking like this:


I don't think I'm going to change anything on this screen anymore.
How do you like it?

Unicorn

Looks pretty good! I like the smooth look.

On a side note, what would be cool, as I suggested on IRC, is if when loading new posts the title bar changed to reflect it, else I thought that the app froze for a few seconds. :P

Another nice thing would be if closing the app only minimized it in the Windows status bar as a :walrii: icon or something, with options to go in settings, maximize window, or quit the app entirely.

And maybe options to have the app auto-start on computer startup?

Yeah, it does. I am working on this right now.

They're both nice things, but they're impossible to do sadly :(
I can minimize it, but this is not a Windows only application. It must run on Linux and Mac OS too. You can always put a shortcut to it into your Start Menu's Autostart folder and add the --minimized option to start it minimized.
