WHATEVER

that code is a quick and dirty hack to get notifications over ssh from my server running irssi to my workstation. Aimed to be extended with other notification systems.

for original notify.pl code :

INSTALL

TODO by someone who uses ERC!

OPTIONS

usage: irssi-notify-listener.py [-h] [-f] [-S] [-V] [-H HOST] [-P PORT]
                                [-G GROWL] [-N NOTIFY]
                                {start,stop} ...

IRSSI Notify Listener

positional arguments:
{start,stop}
    start               Starts the service
    stop                Stops the service

optional arguments:
-h, --help            show this help message and exit
-f, --foreground      Make the notifications stick
-S, --sticky          Make the notifications stick
-V, --verbose         Make the listener verbose
-H HOST, --host HOST  Host to listen on
-P PORT, --port PORT  Port to listen on
-G GROWL, --with-growl GROWL
                        Path to growl executable
-N NOTIFY, --with-notify NOTIFY
                        Path to notify executable

CONFIGURATION

add to your .ssh/config those lines, where HOST is the host and port the PORT you want to connect to :

    Host HOST
    PermitLocalCommand yes
    LocalCommand "/path/to/bin/notossh start"
    RemoteForward PORT localhost:PORT

NOTIFICATIONS

to change the way notifications behaves, like on Fedora systems, you can change the notification line to the following, making it transient :

return [args.notify, '--hint', 'int:transient:1', '-i', 'dialog-information', '-t', '5000', ':'.join(args[1:]), args[0]]

LICENCES

Since 2010, that code is aimed to be hacked. Thanks to Charles doublerebel Philips, Rui Abreu Ferreira and Cooper Ry Lees for their hacks!

notify.pl is under GPL (because I copy/pasted it from Luke Macken and Paul W. Frields)

everything else is WTFPL (because I don't care what you do with it, but if you don't tell me you've improved it it, you're just a moron)

And if you like it, buy me a beer !
