ofxGrowl is an addon for openFrameworks (v 7.0 tested) that adds Growl notification functionality to your project.

There are custom options like custom icons, sticky messages, app registration and click callback events.

    - message: 	a string containing the message
    - sticky: 	Make a message sticky 
    - priority: pririoty
    - icon: 	a string containing the name of the icon file, in the OF data folder. Icons can be .icns files or images (PNG etc)
    - event: 	The name of the event that should be dispatched when the user clicks the message.

The included example is a Xcode 4 OF 0.07 project.
