Simple notification server

Project description

pynotifyd

Simple freedesktop notification daemon.

Installation

pip install pynotifyd

Usage

pynotifyd outputs JSON-formatted notification events at the standard output and debug information at stderr. Each notification is on exactly one line to make it easier to be collected by shell scripts.

Event types:

notify - Notification has been emitted

{
  "action": "notify",
  "notification": {
    "id": 3,
    "app_name": "KDE Connect",
    "app_icon": "kdeconnect",
    "summary": "WhatsApp",
    "body": "Tudor: Hi!",
    "urgency": 2
  }
}

delete - Notification has been dismissed or expired

{
  "action": "delete",
  "id": 1
}

Example usage

Requires jq.

#!/bin/sh

pynotifyd 2>/dev/null | while read -r line; do
    action="$(echo "$line" | jq -r .action)"
    case "$action" in
        notify)
            app_name="$(echo "$line" | jq -r .notification.app_name)"
            echo "New notification from $app_name!"
            ;;
    esac
done
