NotifyMyAndroid

NotifyMyAndroid is a platform that allows you to delivery push notifications from virtually any application to your Android device. We offer a client application that runs on your Android device and a set of easy to use public APIs that can be integrated into your software. (source: http://www.notifymyandroid.com/)

How it works:

First, import the module:

import pynma

Keys management

Create a PyNMA simple instance:

p = pynma.PyNMA( "apikey(s)", "developerkey")

A developerkey is optional. If you'd like to add just one API key, set it as string, if you want more, just provide a list of API key strings.

p = pynma.PyNMA(['apikey1','apikey2'])   # multiple API keys
p = pynma.PyNMA("apikey1","providerkey") # 1 API key with a providerkey

For more flexible usage, you can add and remove keys:

p.addkey("apikey1")
p.addkey(["apikey2","apikey3"])

Or set or change the providerkey

p.developerkey("developerkey")

Notification or Push or Add

p.push(application, event, description, (opt) url, (opt) contenttype, (opt) priority, (opt) batch mode, (opt) html)
Application

Application is your message generating application name (limited to 256)

ex: my music player

Event

Event is the event name (limited to 1000)

ex: switched to next track

Description

The description is the payload of your message (limited to 10000 (10k)) ex:

Playing next song, Blah Blah Blah
Artist: blah blah
Album:  blah blah
Track: 18/24
Url

The URL which should be attached to the notification. This will trigger a redirect when on the user's device launched, and is viewable in the notification list.

Content type

Define the content type. According API, the only content type actually considered is text/html.

Priority

Priority goes from -2 (lowest) to 2 (highest). the default priority is 0 (normal)

Batch mode

Batch mode is a boolean value to set if you'd like to push the same message to multiple API keys 5 by 5 (as the actual verion of prowl API allows you). This can reduce the number of call you make to the API which are limited.

HTML

Set html to True is a shortcut for contenttype="text/html".

Return

The push method returns a dict containing different values depending of the success of you call:

The call succeed

you'll have in the dict those keys:

type: success
code: the HTTP like code (200 if success)
remaining: the number of API call you can to until the reset
resetdate: number of remaining minutes till the hourly reset of your API call limit
The call failed

For wathever reason, you call failed, the dict key "message" will contains the erro message returned by Prowl API. You'll find those keys:

code: 400, 401, 402 or 500 (depends of the error kind)
message: API error message

For the code description, please refer to NMA API documentation for more informations

The python module encountered an unhandled problem (mostly during parsing)

The return keys will be:

code: 600
type: pynmaerror
message: the exception message
