[LINUX] Notify your phone from the terminal.
« on: July 03, 2017, 11:13:07 AM »
I'm just discovered Notify: What is it?


notify is written with node, so you can install with npm.
Code: [Select]
$ npm install -g notify-clior for me
Code: [Select]
$ sudo npm install -g notify-cli

Using notify is simple. When you download the app to your phone (, it will give you a registration key. This key is how your phone is identified by notify. Before you can begin using notify, you should first register your key.
Code: [Select]
$ notify -r myKey
After registering, you can use notify as follows:
Code: [Select]
$ someLongRunningCommand ; notify
You will receive a push notification to your phone when the command has completed, regardless of whether or not it was successful.

You can also specify what the notification will say, like this:
Code: [Select]
$ notify -t "My custom message"
Imagine all the possibilties.
I's a KISS program. That's it!
