GNTP

This is a Python library for working with the Growl Notification Transport Protocol

It should work as a dropin replacement for the older Python bindings

Installation

You can install with pip

$ pip install gntp

then test the module

$ python -m gntp.notifier

Simple Usage

import gntp.notifier

# Simple "fire and forget" notification
gntp.notifier.mini("Here's a quick message")

# More complete example
growl = gntp.notifier.GrowlNotifier(
    applicationName = "My Application Name",
    notifications = ["New Updates","New Messages"],
    defaultNotifications = ["New Messages"],
    # hostname = "computer.example.com", # Defaults to localhost
    # password = "abc123" # Defaults to a blank password
)
growl.register()

# Send one message
growl.notify(
    noteType = "New Messages",
    title = "You have a new message",
    description = "A longer message description",
    icon = "http://example.com/icon.png",
    sticky = False,
    priority = 1,
)

# Try to send a different type of message
# This one may fail since it is not in our list
# of defaultNotifications
growl.notify(
    noteType = "New Updates",
    title = "There is a new update to download",
    description = "A longer message description",
    icon = "http://example.com/icon.png",
    sticky = False,
    priority = -1,
)
