What is it

Shruti is an open source notification system that lets one listen to all those updates instead of reading them themselves.

It uses Ivona service to convert text to speech.

It is meant to be used as a web based service, but its trivial to use it locally as a desktop application.

Its written in Go, builds are available for Gnu\Linux, Mac OS X and Windows.

How it works

  • There are 4 major parts of the system. Backend API server, Providers, Client and a supporting ivona microservice.
  • Backend API takes care of dumping data to postgres and serve it on demand
  • Providers collect data from various sources and push it to the backend server
  • Client manages to read these updates at loud for you
  • Ivona service makes it easier to communicate with Ivona API

btw, it also supports instant push notifications using
