cd pync
python install


For full information on all the options, see the tool’s README.


Using the notify function

import pync

pync.notify('Hello World')
pync.notify('Hello World', title='Python')
pync.notify('Hello World', group=os.getpid())
pync.notify('Hello World', activate='')
pync.notify('Hello World', open='')
pync.notify('Hello World', execute='say "OMG"')



Using the notifier object

from pync import Notifier

Notifier.notify('Hello World')
Notifier.notify('Hello World', title='Python')
Notifier.notify('Hello World', group=os.getpid())
Notifier.notify('Hello World', activate='')
