  • systray

    a cross platfrom Go library to place an icon and menu in the notification area

    thank you. i already saw it and merged it with my local temporary fork. in getlanterns repo is a windows-only PR for left click (WM_LBUTTONUP) - that and middle click (WM_MBUTTONUP) could be added together with the sni versions.

  • windigo

    Windows API and GUI in idiomatic Go.

    I know this is a forked project, but for the Windows part, instead of dealing with all those low-level declarations, using Windigo would've been a lot easier (and safer).

  • i3

    A tiling window manager

    I did see that this systray uses dbus, and I've empirically learned that the i3 (the Linux window manager) does not use dbus because fyne-systray doesn't work with it. The fyne-systray project doesn't have a ticketing system, but I thought it'd be worth noting somewhere.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
