Very useful! Thank you!

Any plans to bring it to the App Store?

Hi @jpincheira! Thank you for feedback! Actually, I was thinking about that for some time. The first option in my mind was to distribute it with homebrew. And the second one to provide .dmg file with possibility to put it in App Store (if approved by Apple). I didn't have a feedback from users and for the beginning decided to go with homebrew. I thought that many of the github users use brew in macOS. Currently I use brew tap, but according to brew documentation, a project can be accepted into homebrew main packages if it will get more than 75 stars in github. When accepted, it can be possible to discovered with 'brew search git' and installed with 'brew install github-notifier'.

P.S. Can I venture to ask whether you use homebrew or not? Would be also be interested what other users will prefer brew package or .dmg app for this kind of tools?

I use homebrew and will be happy if distributed that way.
