#472 closed Enhancement (wontfix)

Description

I love Transmission, but I'm not a huge fan of the Dock. There are many solutions to this, all of which I use at some point (hotkeys, Quicksilver, etc)– I just thought it would be cool if there was a simple Transmission interface similar to that of Twitterriffic. As a helper I thought the BlkAppKit? (http://shiira.jp/hmblkappkit/en.html) would be of some use to anyone interested.

I disagree, HUDs are designed for object manipulation, not object management, thats what a NSWindow is for. Also, if a HUD were to be used, I believe that there are built in classes view in leopard that handle this, and that the use of shiira's classes would be bloat.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

HUD is meant for inspector palettes for full-screen apps. A menu extra really wouldn't accomplish anything that can't be done from within the app and the dock, and just seems bloaty (imagine if every app had a menu extra).

It would be extra bloat; exactly why it wouldn't be practical to include with the app. It would just be handy (see Twitterriffic), especially with Spaces, to be able to access an even more basic interface to Transmission via the menubar. Sorry if the Shiira kit is useless, I only program for web (python et al) so no knowledge of Cocoa (or any other OS framework for that matter).

Thats kind of what the dock menu was designed for...
