Hello! I have a minor comment. Currently the only notification received is when a file is downloaded. It would be great to receive a growl notification when a folder starts syncing and when it finishes syncing. For a directory with a large amount of files, I don't need to be notified for each file but it is nice to see when things are happening. Perhaps others are interested in this functionality too!
Hi Developers, I found a bug in the mac client of btsync! Using the current software version of Growl (V.2.1.3) I'm getting errors in btsync and it randomly just crashes after about a minute of usage. The Terminal output shows the following errors: 2014-01-31 18:23:28.764 BitTorrent Sync[404:507] Failed to notify due to missing registration, queue and reregister 2014-01-31 18:23:28.765 BitTorrent Sync[404:507] Attempting to register while an attempt is already running 2014-01-31 18:23:28.808 BitTorrent Sync[404:507] Failed to notify due to missing registration, queue and reregister 2014-01-31 18:23:28.809 BitTorrent Sync[404:507] Attempting to register while an attempt is already running 2014-01-31 18:23:30.068 BitTorrent Sync[404:507] GrowlApplicationBridge: exception while sending notification: connection went invalid while waiting for a reply because a mach port died 2014-01-31 18:23:30.153 BitTorrent Sync[404:507] We failed at registering with items in our queue waiting to go to growl, sending them to OS X notification center instead I could turn of this problem by unchecking the "Send notification after download finished" option in the btsync settings. But I guess this thing should be fixed anyway... Seb
As you can see below I opened my mac after loading a folder that has source code into it for the first time I was over-run by notifications by growl which not only limited my access to my own computer but was also using a ton of cpu in the process. I blurred file names for privacy but you get the gist of what happened. I would just suggest keeping sync away from growl or if you are going to use growl limit it to sending only so many sync file notifications per minute or so. I actually had to kill growl off to be able to access my computer again. Then it started using mountain lions built-in notification system which automatically collected them into one notification so as not to over-run my entire screen. I realize that this is a problem with growl more so than sync but sync I feel could use a on/off switch for notifications (at least)...
