Take control of your login items

Description
Exhaust allows you to control your login items to add delays, have them start in a sequence, or start with arguments. What are login items? They are applications and services that start up once you login to your user. A great use for Exhaust is to have the menu items go into a order that you want. Exhaust allows you to also run terminal commands at login such as the say command to have it say welcome or whatever you like.

Exhaust is open source at http://opensource.mrgeckosmedia.com/.

Errr, could you please tell me how to make an application load as "hidden" in Exhaust, just like when you check the tickbox in Login Items ? That to me seems like something obvious that should've been added to the program from the start... :-|

Hello,

I'm using Exhaust v0.3 and it's working wonderfully.

I have one request and one (tiny) issue to report.

First, the issue : I'm using french language, and the text inside the "Delay" field appears in another language ("Sin retardo" inside the "Delay" field, "Delay" label is well translated to french "Délai"). The same occurs for "Quit after" ("No dejar de fumar").

Now the request : would it be possible to add an option to start a program masked in Dock, as proposed in the accounts preferences pane ?

Thank you for your time and best regards.

Sounds really useful. Thanks!
Does it support with Snow Leopard 10.6.4?

To do the say command thing.
1 Click the add button and choose Add Comamnd.
2 Replace /bin/bash in the command field with /usr/bin/say.
3 Replace -c in the arguments with what you want it to say. If you want to choose a voice, put an argument as -v and add one more after it with the voice name.

That's it.

Hope you enjoy,
Mr. Gecko

P.S. I will add support for changing arguments position later.
