I’ve updated the project (v1.5, binary, source) to where it’s not even recognizable from its last version :-). A configuration dialog has been added so that everything can now be set dynamically. It’s very configurable to let people work with Pidgin quickly through global shortcut keys however they want to. Any status change or showing/hiding the buddy list can be done without using the mouse, which is how I personally like to work with computers, as it is much faster ;-).

This update ended up taking a lot more hours (and many many many more lines of code [~1500]) than I planned on because I had to learn how to work with multiple libraries from scratch (GTK, Pidgin, GLib, X11). I learned a lot though, and that, and seeing how different people set up their APIs/libraries, is always fun.

I’ll probably be adding this to the Pidgin 3rd party plugins Wiki in the next few days. I might want to fix a few bugs first though (KDE might be messing some things up).
