Welcome to part 3 of the mailsneaker series.
This entry is UNRELATED to the code of the former two parts !
You can use it seperately.
Today we are going to implement a SystemTrayIcon with a small and nice menu.
Ok, it's actually NOT called SystemTray. But everybody calls it that way.
We can also say TaskBarIcon although in my view that naming is even more horrible than the other.
Ok .. last time we made a small imap fetcher.
I got some remarks that it would only look in the INBOX and that might not be what we want.
Just include a new parameter in the fetch method with the name of the inbox you want to scan and pass that on to the imaplib.
Today we will add a pop3 fetcher and a generic class for mailaccounts so that the user later can run the program against several accounts.
We are going to buid a small program to check periodically for our mails. And to make it as unobtrusive as possible we let it settle in the taskbar, check for mails and (if there are new mails) it will tell us with a small popup or a change in the icon in the taskbar. We want to be able to open a browser then and have a look at the mails.. Perhaps we include a small preview of the mails ... We will see.
To make it a little bit more powerfull we want several accounts to be checked. Configurable of course :)
I dropped the rss feed usage finally and switched to the webservice spreadshirt is offering. For an introduction on using it with python and SOAPPy see my earlier post.

I think i will start a small series with python code snipplets for tasks that i had to look for a solution myself. Spares me (and probably some others) the time to search for them.
We have version 0.3 out now.
And a new Homepage for Matrix as well located here.
Sources are available.

Look no further, i found a wonderful feed aggregator written in python and really cool also using django and the same feed parser as i used earlier: Feedjack Bet i am not going to implement my own, just take a look at their examples, impressing. I am going to test it in the next few days when i get some spare time and will report. Stay tuned :-)

As mentioned earlier i played a bit with OpenLaszlo to get my image gallery running as a flash app. The Laszlo Doc and the 10 minutes tutorial are just fine to get started. I installed the 3.3.3 Version and use the IDEforLaszlo Plugin for OpenLaszlo 3.2, an Eclipse plugin. Setup was easy, just follow the instructions. After playing with the 10 minutes tutorial i jumped into coding my gallery test.
a new version is available Imago Release 03
