Gradle notifier

Desktop notifications for Gradle.
A notification is sent when a build ends indicating if the build has failed or succeeded.


Gradle < 4.2 : Use gradle-notifier v1.2.0
Gradle >= 4.2 : Use gradle-notifier v2.0.0+


The plugin can be configured in an initialization script or in the build script.

It is also deployed on

Initialization script

For example, create (or edit) $HOME/.gradle/init.gradle file:

initscript {
    repositories {

    dependencies {
        classpath group: 'fr.jcgay', name: 'gradle-notifier', version: '3.0.0'

rootProject {
    apply plugin: fr.jcgay.gradle.notifier.GradleNotifierPlugin

Build script

In build.gradle, add:

buildscript {
    repositories {

    dependencies {
        classpath group: 'fr.jcgay', name: 'gradle-notifier', version: '3.0.0'

apply plugin: 'fr.jcgay.gradle-notifier'


The plugin is based on send-notification. Available notifiers and customization are described at this wiki.

You can rely on a property file located at $HOME/.send-notification to configure your environment or use gradle to pass properties to the plugin.

    	host = 'localhost'
    	port = 1738
    toaster {
        path = 'toast'
    notify {
        position = 'TOP_LEFT'
        darkstyle = true
    burnttoast {
        sound = 'Reminder'
    slack {
        token = 'secret.token'
        channel = '@jcgay'

notifier.threshold allows to bypass notification when the build ends before the configured threshold.
notifier.continuousNotify activate notifications for continuous build (using --continuous or -t).
notifier.timeout configures the time Gradle will wait to communicate with a notifier.

All parameters are configured by default, if you're fine with it, no need to write them down.
gradle-notifier will try to find an available notifier on your system.

Notifier configuration can also be set using system properties. One can use -Dnotifier.implementation=anybar or -Dnotifier.anybar.port=9999 to override parameters for a specific build execution.
