I've been hesitating for months about publishing my very first Python Application.
This one is a bunch of scripts to check new emails coming on several GMail accounts.
You can download its 1.0 version via:
UsageOnce you've uncompressed the tar.gz file, you'll need to edit the gmail.py file in order to fill the list of accounts at the bottom of the script.
logins = ['myaccount1', 'myaccount1']
logins_plus = ['myaccount3', 'myaccount4']
Those lists are unlimited, but they must not be empty (heh).
For more help:
python gmail.py --help
FeaturesThe program is localised, so it may speak English or French to you. If you want to help, get the .pot file and build a .po file by using poedit, for example, and send it over to me! I'll add it happily.
This command line script will display the message in red if you have new emails on a given account.
- Add a few more options, such as 'minutes' for the timer, or 'color' for the highlighted message
- Externalise the config file ; it's not good that the account list must be edited inside the main script.
- Package it the Python Way
- Make it into a GNOME Applet (I could learn GTK, then)
