Growl Present 1.0

To go along with Tinseltown, my Firefox Christmas Theme, I created Present for Growl. Growl is a notification system for Mac OS X: it allows applications that support Growl to send you little pop-up notifications.

I had always wanted to create a Growl notification and found out that they are quite simple. I took my first stab at at creating one and it’s called Present.

// Image lost. Sorry. Zooomr ate it. Comment if you want me to dig them back up. //

Now, Present didn’t work well if you got a lot of text in your notification. So, I have coded it to hide any text bigger than the present box to avoid any overflow ugliness. I think quite a few notifications already do this so it shouldn’t be to big of an issue.

This is my first Growl status and it’s been tested a bit with Adium. Give it a go and let me know what you think of Present. 🙂
