Just thought a Window's Gadget for AH.FM could be good. A simple gadget showing the current show - and the current thread. Then you'd get a simple text feed and could do text replies or new posts.
Anyone done/seen that?
Found this: http://forum.ah.fm/mellow-lounge/226...op-gadget.html
But that's only the player part...
Hmm that is a nice idea. Well I can always try to make one I'll look into this if you want...
That means I would need your help with the links/scripts to retrieve current show, tune in, etc... from ah.fm so I can implement it.
Main gadget would be a form of about 150x150, containing:
- Some icon logo (png mainly for install)
- Some background (png)
- Current show
- Nr of listeners
If you click to expand, you see a side-panel, that is about 250~300 pixels wide (or more)
- Custom panel background (png)
- The various "tune in" links
- And the rest ... we can think about it
You spoke about posting via the gadget... it is rather small, so a gadget side-panel is perhaps not ideal to post. Hmm I'll check that. Better to test first and then see.
Let me know what you think
firstname.lastname@example.org thanks mate
Well the good news is I think I can pull it off, I made a very basic crappy start, to see if it could be done.
Now just the bling bling, design and functionality ... *kuh*
I'll continue working on it when I have time and keep you updated
is what I think
I did make a small sample gadget, but couldn't deploy it to my Vista box. Think it's security settings
On the posting:
- was just thinking that the current thread could refresh in text mode in the gadget window
- then you could press a short-cut to enter a new post into the thread
Yes I had some struggles with security and "invalid gadget package" too. Basically firefox didn't show a activeX installation window because IE security settings block it. (go figure ). Once you adapt IE setting, it works perfectly everywhere. I'll post a .reg fix with the final release to solve it.
Hm only text of what people sent... It would make it smaller indeed, but how to get the name, what to do with title... this could become complicated hahaha
Maybe color of the name pointing to member status? like forum bottom does ...
DJ+ text text text
member text text text
It would be nice. But how can I obtain that and doesn't this come awfully close to the IRC chat? Note that this means we need to link to the login too, sure it's just another link I'm sure Dan can help with all this.
