    Growl for nodejs

    Build Status

    $ npm install growl
    

    Ubuntu (Linux):

    Install notify-send through the libnotify-bin package:

    growl('You have mail!')
    growl('5 new messages', { sticky: true })
    growl('5 new emails', { title: 'Email Client', image: 'Safari', sticky: true })
    growl('Message with title', { title: 'Title'})
    growl('Set priority', { priority: 2 })
    growl('Show Safari icon', { image: 'Safari' })
    growl('Show icon', { image: 'path/to/icon.icns' })
