The Noterator: bringing notification to iteration.

Project description

Latest Release Build Status Test Coverage Documentation Status

Adding notification to your iteration.

>>> from noterator import noterate, EMAIL, TWILIO
>>> for obj in noterate(my_objects, EMAIL|TWILIO):
...     do_something_slow(obj)

When the loop completes, The Noterator will notify you by all the methods you passed in. In this case it’ll email you and send an SMS to your configured number with Twilio. Other supported notification methods are HipChat (send a notification to a room) and desktop.

You can find more usage information in the usage docs.


Before The Noterator can do anything, you’ll need a config.ini file (see config.example.ini or the example below to get started).

It’s possible to use The Noterator without a configuration file, but it’s a little less concise. See the configuration docs for more detail.

By default, we check for $HOME/.config/noterator/config.ini, so it’s probably best to keep your config there, but you can pass the config_file parameter to noterate with the path to an alternative location.

You only need to define settings for the methods you wish to use.

sound = true

from_mail = The Noterator <>
recipient =
host =
port = 25
username =
password = password123

token = abc123
room_id = 123456
from_name = The Noterator
message_colour = green

account_sid = abc123
token = abc123
from_number = +123456
to_number = +456789
