JSGMail

Post by jsmorley »

This is a little GMail checker that takes advantage of the capabilities of Lua with Rainmeter to add some functionality.

- Checks for unread messages
- Checks for "new" messages, based on a number of minutes you set
- Has a tooltip with the account name and the first 5 unread messages
- Left click to load GMail in your browser
- Middle click to refresh

Set your GMail ID/Password/NewMinutes in [Variables] in the skin.

Requires the latest 2.1 beta of Rainmeter or better.

The "Recent mail" is a very nice feature. :D I also found out that you can use images in tooltips, didn't know that.:P Are we able to differentiate the mails based on gmail labels through Lua?

I don't think so. What is included in the ATOM feed is:
<entry>
<title>
<summary>
<modified>
<issued>
<id>
<author>
<name>
<email>
</author>
<contributor>
<name>
<email>
</contributor>
</entry>

Don't think "unread" things with a label are identified in any separate way.

I just read your answer. So, I see. That's a pity. Google is pretty unique in providing RSS feeds of email accounts & calendars, but messes up the info provided. Guess they haven't heard of Rainmeter yet. :p :)
