Setup for Linux user

Before using Notifier.jl, you need to install following softwares in your Linux system.

  • libnotify for a desktop notification
  • mail for an e-mail notification
  • aplay (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) for a sound notification
  • espeak for reading a given message aloud
$ sudo apt install libnotify-bin alsa-utils espeak mailutils heirloom-mailx bsd-mailx

This package uses mail command to notify by e-mail. You may need some settings in advance. If following command works correctly, you don't need further setting.

$ echo test | mail -s foo yourmail@example.com

Usage

popup notification

using Notifier
notify("Task completed")
# defalut title is "Julia".

sound and say notification

alarm() # only sound. You can specify a sound file, alarm(sound="foo.wav")
say("Finish calculation!") # Read aloud

e-mail notification

email("message", To="foo@example.com") # default subject is set by date.
email("message", subject="result", To="foo@example.com")

If you use email function frequently, I recommend you to register your email address by register_email function.

julia> register_email()
Type your desired recipient e-mail address to receive a notification.
e-mail: foo@example.com

Recipient e-mail address is saved at /path/to/.julia/v0.6/Notifier/email/address.txt.
If you want to change the address, modify /path/to/.julia/v0.6/Notifier/email/address.txt directly or run register_email() again

After you registered, you don't need to specify e-mail address.

email("message")

Timer

When the specified time limit has been reached, notify by sound.

h,m,s = 1,2,3
countup(h,m,s) # Hour, Minute, Second
countdown(h,m,s)
