First of all, great working example, thank you for it.
Is there a way to keep the application running after activating QDialog? I'm trying to do something similar, but whenever i open a QDialog with some QInputDialogs and finish working on them, the QSystemTrayIcon does not respond to any further commands. Menu does not show with right click and i cannot close the application.

I'm having the same issue... Did you find a solution? (Using PyQt5 on macOS over here..)

This worked for me just replacing PyQt5 with PySide2. This pops the icon up on the top menu bar on macOS. Related question: how do you set the application icon on the macOS dock?
