Notify At Finish allows you to pass an arbitrary shell command as an argument and get a nice notification when the command finishes.
Daily programming tasks, such as code compilation and running automated tests, often consumes a lot of time even on rather small projects.
While alt-tabbing away from the command you just started, this simple tool will help you to get back on your development track as soon as possible.
Saving you minutes every day :)
On Linux with pip:
sudo pip install naf
On Mac OS X with pip (with Growl installed):
sudo pip install growl-py sudo pip install naf
On Windows: In theory, naf should work on Windows wth Growl for Windows (http://www.growlforwindows.com/) and growl-py installed. I would highly appreciate any feedback on this.
git clone git://github.com/knutz3n/naf.git cd naf sudo python setup.py install
naf mvn clean install
This will run mvn clean install and notify you when the command has exited with the exit code it returned.
Customizations can be made by creating a file ~/.naf.conf.
