Since this applet seems to have been abandonded, I just wanted to advertise my new applet that aims to be a working replacement of this one: https://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/265
Feel free to post suggestions, feedback, and so on. :)

I love it! This is exactly what I needed :D

I had a little trouble getting my mouse pointer in just the right place to get the context menu for the system tray instead of the context menu for an app in the tray, but I got it eventually.

Confirm - doesn't work with Mint 17.3 v1.1.3

After upgrade to Linux Mint 17.3 (Cinnamon 2.8), the applet does not recognize/list/include most apps in the system tray.

Doesn't seem to be working with Cinnamon 2.6. There is a slim box where the system tray is supposed to be, but it's not being populated with any icons.

Is there a way to have the system sound, removable drives, battery status, etc also be included in this applet?

Never mind, some updates came through the the applets page, and now rechecking some options seemed to get it to work!

Having issues with this applet in Cinnamon 2.4.8, icon won't display, no way to expand or collapse it seems. I can get the border to respond on hover, but that is about it at the moment...

I added the option to expand the tray on hovering the expand button instead of clicking which is more convenient for certain use cases, in my opinion :-)

Yep works now. Btw, could you try to improve the look of the hover icon for the expand icon? Right now the icon has a fixed size and doesn´t seem to expand together with the panel the way the other applets do.

Often crashes Cinnamon on expand right after system boot in Cinnamon 2.2

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.
