HackerTray

HackerTray is a simple Hacker News Linux application that lets you view top HN stories in your System Tray. It relies on appindicator, so it is not guaranteed to work on all systems. It also provides a StatusIcon fallback but it has not been tested.

The inspiration for this came from Hacker Bar, which is Mac-only. I tried to port it to node-webkit, but had to do it in Python instead because nw doesn't support AppIndicators yet.
