iChatOnLogin1.10

22 June 2009

Login to iChat accounts without launching iChat.

Overview

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 in iChatOnLogin

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.

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.

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?

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.
