Growl Notification Transport Protocol for Python
This is a Python library for working with the Growl Notification Transport Protocol
It should work as a dropin replacement for the older Python bindings
You can install with pip
$ pip install gntp
then test the module
$ python -m gntp.notifier
import gntp.notifier # Simple "fire and forget" notification gntp.notifier.mini("Here's a quick message") # More complete example growl = gntp.notifier.GrowlNotifier( applicationName = "My Application Name", notifications = ["New Updates","New Messages"], defaultNotifications = ["New Messages"], # hostname = "computer.example.com", # Defaults to localhost # password = "abc123" # Defaults to a blank password ) growl.register() # Send one message growl.notify( noteType = "New Messages", title = "You have a new message", description = "A longer message description", icon = "http://example.com/icon.png", sticky = False, priority = 1, ) # Try to send a different type of message # This one may fail since it is not in our list # of defaultNotifications growl.notify( noteType = "New Updates", title = "There is a new update to download", description = "A longer message description", icon = "http://example.com/icon.png", sticky = False, priority = -1, )
URL based images do not work in the OSX version of growl 1.4 You can send the image along with the notification to get around this.
image = open('/path/to/image.png').read() growl.notify( noteType = "New Messages", title = "You have a new message", description = "This time we embed the image", icon = image, )
