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.

Hi,
Nice idea ! But a really good stuff can be to have an Helper integrated in Transmission.app, which show a menu bar icon with options like yours, drop .torrent files or URL (to add torrent) and to be independent of Transmission.app 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 :)
