growl-express

NPM

Installing

$ npm install --global growl-express

Startup

Optional environment variables are PORT to define the http listening port and DISABLE_LOGGING set as "true" to disable logging.

$ growl-express
Server listening on :::23054

Usage

The growl-express server exposes three POST methods: /register, /notify, and /setHost.

[POST] /register

Registers a new application with Growl. Registration is completely optional since it will be performed automatically for you with sensible defaults. Useful if you want your application, with its own icon and types of notifications, to show up in Growl's prefence panel.

Parameters

  • appname the name of the application (default is 'growl-express')
  • appicon url or file path for an application icon image.
  • notifications a list of defined notification types with the following properties:
    • .label name used to identify the type of notification being used (required.)
    • .dispname name users will see in Growl's preference panel (defaults to .label.)
    • .enabled whether or not notifications of this type are enabled (defaults to true.)
    • .icon url or file path for the notification's icon.

Example

curl --header "Content-Type: application/json" --request POST --data '{
    "appname": "growl-express-example-app",
    "notifications": [
      { "label": "default", "icon": "http://imgur.com/amjVCj6.jpg" },
      { "label": "success", "icon": "http://imgur.com/WjZjXjP.jpg" },
      { "label": "error",   "icon": "http://imgur.com/rvtftG9.jpg" }
  ] }' http://localhost:23054/register

[POST] /notify

Sends a Growl notification. If an application wasn't registered beforehand with growly.register(), a default application will automatically be registered beforesending the notification.

Parameters

  • text the body of the notification.
  • options an object with the following properties:
    • .title title of the notification.
    • .icon url or file path for the notification's icon.
    • .sticky whether or not to sticky the notification (defaults to false.)
    • .label type of notification to use (defaults to the first registered notification type.)
    • .priority the priority of the notification from lowest (-2) to highest (2).
    • .coalescingId replace/update the matching previous notification. May be ignored.

Examples

curl --header "Content-Type: application/json" --request POST --data '{
    "text": "such notify!",
    "options": { "title": "wow" }
  }' http://localhost:23054/notify

curl --header "Content-Type: application/json" --request POST --data '{
    "text": "systems ok!",
    "options": { "label": "success" }
  }' http://localhost:23054/notify

curl --header "Content-Type: application/json" --request POST --data '{
    "text": "everything is broken!",
    "options": {
      "title":"oh no! ????",
      "label":"error",
      "sticky":true }
  }' http://localhost:23054/notify

[POST] /setHost

Set the host and port that Growl (GNTP) requests will be sent to. Using this method is optional since GNTP defaults to using host 'localhost' and port 23053.

Parameters

  • host some GNTP host.
  • port some GNTP port.

Example

curl --header "Content-Type: application/json" --request POST --data '{
    "host": "some-other-host",
    "port": 1337
  }' http://localhost:23054/setHost
