iChatOnLogin logs you into your iChat accounts (AIM/Bonjour/Jabber) when you login. Why not start iChat instead? You can, but then you have iChat.app running, which I don't want to have running while not chatting.
Its intention is to have a small application run when you log in to your account which logs your iChat accounts in.
It uses the iChat preferences for figuring out which accounts to log in.
What's New
Version 1.10:
  • at startup it figures out if the machine is connected to the Internet and starts ichat login as soon as thats the case.
Requirements

Why ?

Cause you do not have to start up iChat.app which uses a more megabytes of your system memory and still be online.


On Leopard iChat has this feature of automatically login me in, but not no Tiger.

Ah, so it brings a Leopard-only feature to Tiger.

All the Tiger users should be happy about that, then. Good job.

I do not understand what one would use this for. Can someone please explain?

A strange thing happens to me. Every time I launch the application manually it works, but not always when it starts from the startupitems. Could it be that the application starts before internet is connected? Could you in that case make a function that waits a couple of seconds, if it can't connect to the internet.

Yes I have the same problem. Don't think it is anything to do with the network, since that is already up. Must be something else that isn't ready.

It seems it's a bug that some apple events are not working on startup. The program now reads in your loginwindow preferences to work around that bug.
New version is 1.04

as this is a background program, you won't see a gui that "launches".

I understand that it doesn't have GUI.

It is, however, supposed to launch iChat. Nope...it doesn't. Nada. Zilch. Nothing. Air. Goose eggs. Zip. 86. Ace. Zero. Nix.

seika7 had trouble on 24 Jun 2009
I love the concept, but it's not working for me with 10.4.11. I confirmed that it's in my System Preferences -> Accounts -> Login Items and I've restarted. I don't have an AIM account on this computer, but I want it to login to Bonjour as it did when I had iChat set to open at login.

Any ideas?
