Advanced Settings using the Command Line (macOS)
READ ME FIRST
If you're using the Mac App Store version of Twitterrific, you'll need to use
VERSION below. Customers with Project Phoenix should use
Also, please note that these commands are not officially supported by the Iconfactory. If you aren't experienced with the Terminal and command line, we don't recommend using them. You're on your own if something breaks.
Running without a Dock icon
Twitterrific can be run without a Dock icon, but you'll need to be careful about setting it up.
First, you need to have either a hot key enabled or an icon in the menu bar (otherwise, you'd have no way to access the app.)
Next, You also need to be aware that disabling the Dock icon also disables the menu bar, so you won't have easy access to Preferences, Help, or other functions that are only accessible via a menu item.
Finally, run this command from the Terminal to turn off the Dock icon:
defaults write VERSION advancedShowDockIcon -bool NO
If you change your mind, quit the app using Command-Q and then enter "YES" instead of "NO" in the command above.
Maintaining Timeline when Switching Accounts
When you change the account using the popup menu in the window title, Twitterrific changes to the Home timeline, giving you a predictable state.
There are cases where you might prefer to have the current timeline maintained as you switch accounts. For example, if you have multiple accounts that you want to check for Mentions, it's much simpler with the following advanced preference:
defaults write VERSION advancedMaintainTimelineState -bool YES
Use "NO" in the command above to restore the default behavior.
Classic Notification Sound
If you want the notification sound from previous versions of Twitterrific for macOS, use this option:
defaults write VERSION generalClassicSounds -bool YES
Again, use "NO" if you change your mind.
