Firstly, apologize for my poor englishblush

Too many icons in sytem tray ?

This is a fork of the original Cinnamon System Tray applet, but Expandable/Collapsible . It allow to :

  • chose display duration ( Cinnamon settings API)
  • chose icons to show/hide ( Context menu )
  • save auto/manual icons configuration ( Cinnamon settings API)
  • chose icons for expand/collapse button ( Cinnamon settings API)
  • fix the bug : icons are replaced by grey icons after dragging

Thanks for use it, suggestions and comments smiley

The git repository :

Changelog 1.1.1 (2013.11.18) :

  • Add option to enable/disable the hover effect

Changelog 1.1 (2013.09.10) :

Store the list of hidden icons in the settings API (proposed by dalcde)

  • Hide the expand/collapse button when no icon is hidden (asked by dalcde)
  • Add background/border style via stylesheet.css to keep applet clickable without expand/collapse button (proposed by clem). Switchable between gradient background or border in the settings API
  • Sort the icons in order of addition in system tray and context menu. And replace switch button by cross button for "Previous Icons" in context menu
  • Format the applet code with spaces (asked by dalcde, I hope it is cleaner now ^^)

Changelog 1.0 (2013.08.26) :

  • initial upload

    This spice is amazing! The official system tray should be replaced with System Tray Collapsible. Excellent job!

    I would love to be able to reorder the items in the tray though.

    Thanks for comment and rating, I don't had time to code last month. now I work on Sound with apps volume. I'll work on this applet juste after. I plan to add option to enable/disable the hover effect, but for the flickering I think it will be hard because I can't redisplay only one icon but the all icons at the same time. i'll try anyway ^^

    My bad the hover effect can be set in the cinnamon theme.So you don´t need to bother with it!There are only 2 things that are a tad annoying. The transition effect when opening closing the tray.It is flickering and not very nice.I suppose you know it already, and hopefully you ´ll improve it a bit.

    thanks for comment and rating zagortenay, I will, at least, add an option to enable/disable the hover effect if I can't do something better ^^

    Honestly this is amazing, and the only thing that is annoying is the hover effect when you hover over an icon in the systray.I wonder if it is possible to get rid of that or to customize it?If so then this would be perfect!

    @koutch: you English looks fine! (as long as you capitalize your "I"s :) Really just come and chat. Most likely no one is chatting when you get in, but just type a "hi" and see if anyone is around. If no one responds you can just leave the window there and someone will talk. Eventually.

    @ dalcde : thanks for comment and serious comment ;). 1) I should have thought about it before :D 2) lol sorry i'm a little developer and i used to code just for myself ^^' i'll try to do something better 3) i'll think about it and clem's suggestion to keep the applet clickable. @ clem : thanks too for comments and congrats ^^ I'd be glad if some of my applets' features is add to cinnamon . about IRC i'm afraid that my level of english makes it difficult, but there is a first for everything. :)

    Definitely "awesome". You need to show something so people can click the applet and access it when nothing is hidden... with that said I'd agree with dalcde on the fact that the arrow might not be ideal for this when nothing's hidden. Maybe the entire systray zone could be visible, as if it was an object (I tink KDE does that), with a border and all, so you could always click the border. Other than that, I'm planning on adding some of the features you developed into Cinnamon itself and to learn from what you've done (congrats on the sound with apps volume applet too btw). Don't hesitate to join us on IRC, I'd love to chat with you about all this. In the meantime, 5 stars and big congrats from me ;)

    Okay time for serious comments :) 1) You can store the list of icons hidden with the settings API (I think) 2) Format your code!!!!!! (without using tabs, of course) 3) Don't show the expand/collapse when no icon is hidden.
