Growl Notification Transport Protocol for Python

Project description

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

Installation

You can install with pip

$ pip install gntp

then test the module

$ python -m gntp.notifier

Simple Usage

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', 'rb').read()
growl.notify(
    noteType = "New Messages",
    title = "You have a new message",
    description = "This time we embed the image",
    icon = image,
)

Note

With Growl 2 and above user can choose to pass notification to system wide notifications center. In this case icon argument would be ignored by the notification center (there would always be Growl icon instead).

Changelog
