Terminal Notifier

This module provides a node API for notifications on Mac OS X Lion by wrapping Eloy Durán's library


npm install terminal-notifier


var notifier = require('terminal-notifier');

notifier('message text');
notifier('message with title', { title: 'Title' });

Pass an object as the second argument to set additional options:

  • title The notification title. Defaults to ‘Terminal’.
  • subtitle The notification subtitle.
  • group A string which identifies the group the notifications belong to. Old notifications with the same ID will be removed.
  • activate The bundle identifier of the application to activate when the user clicks the notification.
  • open The URL of a resource to open when the user clicks the notification.
  • execute A shell command to perform when the user clicks the notification.
