A toolbox in Java to send notifications.


Notifiers can be configured by creating the file $HOME/.send-notification.
This file should contains properties in the form: key = value.

  • notifier.implementation = which implementation to use. (growl, notificationcenter, simplenc notifysend, systemtray, snarl, pushbullet, kdialog, notifu, anybar, toaster, notify, burnttoast, slack).

Default notifiers

send-notification will try to find an available notifier on running os.


  • Growl,
  • Notification Center (with terminal-notifier)
  • System Tray


  • Kdialog,
  • notify-send
  • System Tray


  • Snarl
  • Growl
  • Toaster
  • BurntToast
  • System Tray

Use multiple notifiers

You can choose to send notification to multiple notifiers at once using:


In this case, growl will always be used and pushbullet can be activated when passing property notifyAll to the JVM.
It is handy when you launch a long process and know that you may not be in front your computer anymore when the process should ends.
