system tray or notification area in python

Discussion in 'Python' started by Daniel Fetchinson, Oct 16, 2012.

  1. Hi folks,

    I'm using a stand alone window manager without gnome or kde or any
    other de. But I still would like to have a system tray or notification
    area and so far used stalonetray for this. Stalonetray is written in C
    and is a GTK application, works all right but sometimes it doesn't.
    For instance if it is killed and restarted icons don't come back, etc,
    etc, there are some quirks.

    So I thought I would write a brand new stand alone system tray or
    notification area in python. I guess I need to use gtk bindings or
    some such but don't really know what my options are.

    Where would I start something like this?
    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

    Cheers,
    Daniel
