Re: WindowWatcher plugin - v0.0.1

what I would honestly do. is I would change the plugin class name the action names and give it a new GUID as well with only you as the author with a mention in the description about bitmonster or you can include him in the author line if you like. set the version to 0.1b and package the thing as yo...

Re: WindowWatcher plugin - v0.0.1

thats fine. why not do this. see if you can combine the benefits of using the DLL and add the window class stuff to it. I had a bit of time recently, so I decided to give this a shot. I present, for your perusal, TaskMonitorPlus . I copied the Task Monitor plugin from EventGhost, and added payloads...

Re: Is it required to join a thread in Python?

I've done some more reading on the threading module. If one sets the 'daemon' attribute to True on a child thread object before calling start() on it, then python will exit when the main thread exits (the documentation says the child threads are "abruptly stopped" in this case). Contrast to non-daem...

the pem file that is included with requests is made by openSSL. but this gives you a means to get rid if the security warning https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15445981/how-do-i-disable-the-security-certificate-check-in-python-requests While it's good to know how to disable SSL verification, that...

Re: iTunes Plugin

There, this version should fix it. Let me know!

I've also added a notice when the playlist actions are called with a playlist name that can't be found in iTunes.

Re: iTunes Plugin

I am not a programmer so can anyone help me understand this error? Well, without getting too technical, the plugin is trying to ask its worker thread to load the playlist, but the worker thread doesn't exist. Can you list the steps you took that led to this error appearing? It'll help me track it d...

Huge thanks also to @kgschlosser, who's already submitted four pull requests against my code, and in the process, is teaching me more about wxPython and about EventGhost's coding standards!

Re: HTTPRequest Plugin - v0.1.0

great that you already improved your plugin. Thanks for that. It will not work for me though as soon as I use cert verification. It's the as when I used Requests directly from a script as posted earlier. Like you say, the "problem" is with Requests -- though really, Windows is to blame here too. Ju...

TrayTip plugin - v0.2.0

Version 0.2.1 released! Highlights: The API has changed! Again! ShowTip()'s function signature is different. You'll probably have to delete and recreate your actions (again). Specify an event suffix for TrayTip events. No more needing to check {eg.event.payload}! (You can still pass a payload if yo...

Is it required to join a thread in Python?

In the languages I'm used to, when you create a new thread, you either need to join() it eventually to your main thread, or else take extra steps to ensure the main thread that it doesn't need to wait for the separate thread to finish. If you don't do either of these steps, you can accumulate zombie...

Re: WindowWatcher plugin - v0.0.1

there is a very similar plugin called task monitor Oh hey, so there is! And it looks like it uses a DLL, which means it can hook into Windows events, making it better than the polling method I use. Cool stuff. On the flip side, Task Monitor doesn't have a payload with its event. Having something li...

Re: iTunes Plugin

I found this plugin a few days ago, and I'm glad to say it still works. The fact that its last release was a few years ago worried me a bit, so I decided to copy it to github and play with it. The result is attached. The changes are mostly minor, but they're things I thought were missing from the pl...

Re: Trigger event if Chrome browser notification pops up

I found this thread, but it's pretty old, and it sounds like the Chrome add-on in question isn't being actively developed.
