extern crate notify_rust; use notify_rust::Notification; use notify_rust::NotificationHint as Hint; Notification::new() .summary("Category:email") .body("This has nothing to do with emails.\nIt should not go away until you acknoledge it.") .icon("thunderbird") .appname("thunderbird") .hint(Hint::Category("email".to_owned())) .hint(Hint::Resident(true)) // this is not supported by all implementations .timeout(0) // this however is .show().unwrap();
