This is a Cinnamon applet, which lets you access your places and bookmarks through an icon in the cinnamon panel.
1) Copy the folder "email@example.com" to "~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/". 2) Enable the applet in cinnamon settings. (Eventually you have to restart cinnamon: Press Alt+F2, type 'r' and enter)
It is possible to change the applet appearance. You can choose between the default icon, symbolic icons or a text label. All you have to do is to modify the highlighted line in the "applet.js" file and select one of the options provided.
One question though, What programming language is used to buil these apps?. I really would like to make one of my own. I enjoy programing and I am currently learning python.
great applet! Is it possible to include mounted drives into the menu as well? I mean the entries which Nautilus shows under "Devices" like attached disk drives. See http://www.abload.de/img/devicesfckbf.png: I would love to have the top entries on the right under "Devices" (from the Nautilus window) show up in the places applet as well, optimally with additional separators.
I think I could add manual bookmarks, but this would lead to duplicate entries in the Nautilus window.
Thanks for making the applet!
Would it be possible to add an option to use symbolic icons, instead of the full color ones? At least for the main applet icon (user home)?
I have some sftp:// locations in my bookmarks file (~/.gtk-bookmarks) but they doesn't show up in the places applet.
I've tried to search back the documentation for `Main.placesManager.getBookmarks();` without success. Can you please help me somehow to make the network locations visible in your applet?
I'm willing to help in any way (including test & code) if that helps, but I'm new to Gnome Shell. ( & Cinnamon)
but can I change it's place in panel: just before the "task list"?
By the way: How is the "Score" calculated? It doesn't just sum up the star ratings, how is it done?
Any place in the filesystem should be bookmarkable.
