HEADS-UP: Needs OctoPrint 1.2.4 or later!

OctoPrint Pushbullet Plugin

This is an OctoPrint Plugin that adds support for Pushbullet notifications to OctoPrint.

At the current state OctoPrint will send a notification when a print job finishes. If a webcam is available, an image of the print result will be captured and included in the notification.

Configuration Dialog

Example Push Notification


Install via the bundled Plugin Manager or manually using this URL:


The only thing that absolutely needs to be configured is the Access Token necessary to access Pushbullet's API. You can find this in you Pushbullet Account Settings under "Access Token". Copy and paste the value there into the "Access Token" input field in the configuration dialog of the Pushbullet plugin.

All other settings can also be edited via the included configuration dialog. If you want to edit config.yaml manually, this is the expected structure:

    # Pushbullet Access Token for your account
    access_token: your_access_token

    # Pushbullet Channel Tag to use for messages, may be left empty/null
    push_channel: some_tag
    # message to send when a print is done
    # available placeholders:
    # - file: name of the file that was printed
    # - elapsed_time: duration of the print, format "[{days}d ]{hours}h {minutes}min"
      # title of the notification
      title: 'Print job finished'
      # body of the notification
      body: '{file} finished printing in {elapsed_time}'

    # message to send for regular progress messages
    # available placeholders:
    # - progress: current progress in percent
    # - file: name of the file that is being printed
    # - elapsed_time: duration of the print so far, format "[{days}d ]{hours}h {minutes}min"
    # - remaining_time: expected remaining duration of the print, format "[{days}d ]{hours}h {minutes}min"
    # - eta: expected finish time of the print, format "[{year}-{month}-{day} ]{hour}:{minute}"
      # title of the notification
      title: 'Print job {progress}% complete'

      # body of the notification
      body: '{progress}% on {file}

        Time elapsed: {elapsed_time}

        Time left: {remaining_time}

        ETA: {eta}'

Known Issues

The test message fails but my access token definitely is correct

Check your octoprint.log. If it contains an error that looks like this:

your version of Python and hence its built-in SSL support is too old to work together with the Pushbullet API. This affects Python versions less than 2.7.9. If you are still running OctoPi 0.12 which was based on Raspbian Wheezy, you only have Python 2.7.3 and this is the likely cause.

This can be fixed though. The following steps assume you are indeed running OctoPi - if not please substitute your virtual environment path (~/oprint here) accordingly or better yet, update your Python version to at least 2.7.9.

SSH into OctoPi. Then execute the following:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libffi-dev
source ~/oprint/bin/activate
pip install requests[security]
sudo service octoprint restart

This might take a bit since a bunch of security libraries have to be installed, at least one of which also needs compilation. On a Pi2 it takes a couple of minutes. After the restart of OctoPrint your problems should vanish.

What are those commands doing? They basically update the SSL support for the library the Pushbullet plugin is using to talk to the Pushbullet API. And why can't Pushbullet detect this and solve on its own? The problem is that bit with libffi-dev up there - that's a dependency needed for the updated library to successfully build on your system, and the plugin can't install that for you.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
