Menu Bar Icon instead of dock

Postby dadamson » Thu May 12, 2011 6:10 pm

Would it be possible to have an option for transmission to work as a menu bar icon near the clock and hide the dock icon most apps are doing this now and seen as I have it running all the time it would be a bit tidier.

Oh yes!

Would it still be able to show dl/ul information on the icon in this case, though? Would you need a different icon .png file for every number combination?

I would also like to have this feature.

From an earlier thread about the same thing:
pope52 wrote:I support this idea, insofar as it is relatively simple. The menubar item need not display more information than the dock item:

X Seeding
Pause All
Resume All
Speed Limit
Toggle Client (Shows/Hides the actual client)

This would be a great boon for those who leave torrents seeding in the background for days on end. I appreciate your efforts.

This would be perfect

Hey, what about this feature?
To me very short supply of her!

Agreed, this would be a great (and probably easy to implement?) feature! Bump.

Nice idea ! But a really good stuff can be to have an Helper integrated in, which show a menu bar icon with options like yours, drop .torrent files or URL (to add torrent) and to be independent of to auto restart it when it crash, or use like a Daemon app !

Really would love this!
call me OCD but I have always had an annoyance at anything that I am not actively working on showing on my dock as running, seeing I have transmission running 24/7 it would be better suited to a memubar icon at-least when its just downloading/seeding.

Thank you :)

I second this. I use the app Dockless to hide the dock icon, but now it will be unusable when macOS prohibits 32-bit apps. Plus you can't access the Transmission menu/settings with Dockless activated. A menu bar icon would be better, drag-n-drop of torrent files d/l u/l badge etc not really necessary. More important to hide the dock icon when using a shared computer and want to share files 24/7.
