Simple cross platform desktop notifications for node-webkit
Developers seem to love to hear about how other developers work, so I thought I’d try to capture my entire environment, from end to end, in a single post. This will change (has changed) over time and depending on the project/company/whatever, but this is how things are for me right now. A couple of points up front:
- I work for Automattic, so a lot of this is influenced by our internal policies/security/workflow.
- I don’t always use all components of this “system”. I’ll try to detail when I do/don’t use certain parts of it as I go.
OK, here goes.
Note: This turned into a little bit of a summary of how we work internally at Automattic as well. Oh well, maybe it’ll provide some inspiration, I think we do some pretty cool things.
window.open('', '_self', ''); window.close();
Basically it reopens the window on itself, then immediately closes itself. Neat. Haven’t had any problems with it not working in other browsers, but I also haven’t super-widely tested it.
