Big thx for notify extension. It is cool thing.
So cool that I want to use it for following, additional cases:
Names should be self-explanatory.
I know 0.27 is in features freeze.
For approaching above with minimal effort, I think 2 phases might be worth to consider:
Short-term: add to UDP interface possibility to provide all fields (coverart,album,artist,time,info,progress). Only in UDP. mythutil can stay like today.
Long-term: add to notification-ui.xml window definitions/translations for above.
Only real functional difference between short-term and long-term is possibility to define particular(per notification type) widow size/layout in long-term solution. Not big deal remembering that short-term ext.app. can already feed type-relevant dedicated icon/picture using UDP interface.
I think short-term will be flexible enough to temporarily stop users complaints for impossibility to make multiple layout-differentiated notifications.
What You think?
