Readme for happindicator3-0.2.1

[back to package description]


This project is a fork of the original happindicator library which provided bindings to Ubuntu's AppIndicator library.

happindicator3 uses a simplified build system and is compatible with the gtk3 library, as opposed to happindicator which required the older gtk library.

While not 100% identical to happindicator, the happindicator3 API has stayed largely backwards compatible with the original happindicator.

Build Notes

This package requires appindicator3-0.1 and its development files to be installed.

The included demo application can be built by passing the "demo" flag to Cabal.


Please refer to the API docs available on Hackage.


A simple demo application can be found at demo/Main.hs.
