I ended up doing with GTK menu as Gmail applet. Now it is also possible to reply a direct message with the applet. Just click on the item (message) that you want reply and the dialog will appear, type the text and voila.

How is it going to be? SVG Emblem is going to be part of CDApplet, or it is going to be provided internally from DBus? This 'QuickInfo' name reminded me the SetQuickInfo method from Dbus.

If it is going to be part of the CDApplet, we can even encapsulate the SetEmblem inside it.

It can be interesting to port it to C and include it in the Cairo-Dock API (and add the possibility to use it with DBus)

I changed the menus a lil. Now menus for tweet and direct messages show can show both the new, and old tweets/messages. Let me explain. Based on the image bellow, if you receive new messages, and tweets, you are going to see in real time that those menus will turn into "New [tweets|direct messages] (counter)" ("1" on the image). If you click on the new direct messages ("1" on the image), it is going to show the new messages (you can reply them), and the next time you are going to see the menu as "2" in the image. If you neither have new messages nor have new tweets, the menu is like "3" on the image, and you can see the old messages, and tweets using them.

About the svg emblem: is it possible to have the same option that we have with Gmail applet in order to have a bigger emblem? (currently I can't read what it's written)

@matttbe: Yes, it is quite small. Sure it is possible

emblems are usually 1/2 of the icon size (so 1/4 of the surface)

we can either use the overlay (emblem) API, or the quick-info one.
if we use the quick-info, currently what is missing is an option to draw an image as the background, instead of just a colored rectangle ?

I understood that the size of emblems were limited when I tried to make them bigger and plot them, they were shrunk down, of course, that is the right behaviour, but I was not aware about that until the moment. So, to workaround the emblem size, I'm drawing icon + emblem together with SetIcon. On the last rev what I did was to put the default icon inside the emblem file (svg) using xlink. jesuisbenjamin also did that, but what he did was a pure svg file for icon + emblem, but I prefered use only the emblem as vector with a xlink to the default icon file because like that the icon can be changed without affecting the emblem.

So I've added the possibility to check your own tweets, i.e., user timeline. Right-click -> My tweets. So now, Fab/Mattbe, people are not going to read the CD announcements twice on Twitter I think in terms of features that is it. I completed all those presented on the blueprint, and some extras. I still have to add some options on the configuration, but I think it is pretty much it. Next step I will start with the Identi.ca support. I still have to plan how I'm gonna organize the code, I do not want to see a circus in my code

@Eduardo: I've added a few modifications on BZR => rev 248
Is it possible to add a message if we want to send a message of more than 140 characters?
Also, it seems it's not possible to send tweets with sharps (#).

more than 140 characters?

is it possible ??

Great job Eduardo, the applet has become excellent, I realy enjoy it !

I have a feature request
I'd like to have an option to choose the sound (with a checkbox to possibly deactivate it) and another option to have an animation, like for the mail applet); is it possible ?

the characters will turn red if you go over 140, which is quite expressive (in the very improbable case where the Twitter user has never realized the maximum size is 140 chars)

  1. Why is it 141 characters? How the character counter works on the CD API?
  2. It is not possible to send messages with more than 140 characters, the limit is strictly defined on the Twitter API, 140 characters.
  3. Sending tweets with hashtags(#) here are working perfectly.

Twitter messages are limited to 140 characters, the API says "The text of your direct message. Be sure to URL encode as necessary, and keep the message under 140 characters."
