Tutorial available here: How to write your own native Node.js extension or in TUTORIAL.md

This is a follow up to How to roll out your own Javascript API with V8.

Install

Dependencies(Debian, Ubuntu):

sudo apt-get install libnotify-dev

Using npm:

npm install notify

Manually:

node-gyp configure && node-gyp build

Usage

var notify = require("notify"); // or "../build/Release/gtknotify.node" if you build manually
var notification = new notify.notification();
notification.title = "Notification title";
notification.icon = "emblem-default"; // see /usr/share/icons/gnome/16x16
notification.send("Notification message"); // using libnotify's default timeout

To send notification with a timeout:

notification.send("Notification message", 3000); // 3 sec timeout
// or
notification.send("Notification message", 0); // lasts forever
notification.close(); // closes it
