And don't forget to check my project page, which features a more detailed instruction, for how to install it on  Windows and Linux.

Will do :)

EDIT: I tested it out, and have fully customized it, just it seems like it doesn't notice the posts until 3-45 seconds later. Is there a reason for that?

Also, when the notification pops up, the author's name has the bottom quarter cut off.

Ah, awesome :D
Yes, there's an interval setting which is normally set to 50 seconds. Also the data is cached on the server to keep the load away from CodeWalrus servers.
In theory I could lower it (the cache time is 45 seconds currently), if DJ and Juju allow that.

Oh, please send me a screenshot of the little notification window and I'll fix that cut-off bug (I did not see it before, but I can still try ;)).

Despite my eyes burning from the green text on pink, what caught my attention the most was those :walrii: in your task bar :P


Also DarkestEx you should make a screenshot of the notifier where one of the post has Walrii in it :P

EDIT: By the way, something I noticed in the post notifier is that images are stretched up. For example, the screenshot above is larger in height.

Yeah, I should do.

About the stretching, yeah, I saw that too. I still need to fix it. It's an easy fix though and only involves changing the default CSS code.
You can btw. customize the body's html completly over the style settings.
The post content is embedded with the <post> tag.

That is nice. :D I personally will most likely leave things as is, but maybe people could post custom designs once the app is finished.

Yeah, that would be awesome :D
To share it, just copy the settings.json or its contents and you're ready to go :)

Awesome :), now I need time to install it :P

Good news for y'all!
The notifier is now way faster with new post updates.
Server side, the data is now only cached for 15 seconds (thanks Juju for allowing it  :thumbsup:) instead of 45 so new post should be retrieved a lot faster now.
You don't need to download another version, but just go to the settings and change the update interval to 10 seconds.
