Apprise Logo


ap·prise / verb
To inform or tell (someone). To make one aware of something.


Apprise allows you to send a notification to almost all of the most popular notification services available to us today such as: Telegram, Pushbullet, Slack, Twitter, etc.

  • One notification library to rule them all.
  • A common and intuitive notification syntax.
  • Supports the handling of images (to the notification services that will accept them).

System owners who wish to provide a notification service no longer need to research each and every new one as they appear. They just need to include this one library and then they can immediately gain access to almost all of the notifications services available to us today.

System Administrators who wish to send a notification from a scheduled task or from the command line also no longer need to find the right tool for the job. Everything is already wrapped and supported within the apprise script that ships with this product.

Installation

The easiest way is to install this package is from pypi:

pip install apprise

Command Line

A small command line tool is also provided with this package called apprise. If you know the server url's you wish to notify, you can simply provide them all on the command line and send your notifications that way:

# Send a notification to as many servers as you want to specify
# as you can easily chain them together:
apprise -t 'my title' -b 'my notification body' \
   'mailto://myemail:mypass@gmail.com' \
   'pbul://o.gn5kj6nfhv736I7jC3cj3QLRiyhgl98b'

# If you don't specify a --body (-b) then stdin is used allowing
# you to use the tool as part of your every day administration:
cat /proc/cpuinfo | apprise -t 'cpu info' \
      'mailto://myemail:mypass@gmail.com'

Developers

To send a notification from within your python application, just do the following:

import apprise

# create an Apprise instance
apobj = apprise.Apprise()

# Add all of the notification services by their server url.
# A sample email notification
apobj.add('mailto://myemail:mypass@gmail.com')

# A sample pushbullet notification
apobj.add('pbul://o.gn5kj6nfhv736I7jC3cj3QLRiyhgl98b')

# Then notify these services any time you desire. The below would
# notify all of the services loaded into our Apprise object.
apobj.notify(
    title='my notification title',
    body='what a great notification service!',
)
