Notify Me

How many times did you sit and wait for a docker image download?
Are you tired of looking at the terminal while npm installs all packages as I am?

Today I learned about noti, an open source golang based terminal tool that monitors a process and triggers a notification when it’s done.


Once installed, all you need to do is add noti in the beginning or end of your command

$ noti npm install

noti banner notification

Pro Tip

Forgot to use noti? leverage the --pwatch option with the process ID

$ noti --pwatch $(pgrep docker-compose)

It will trigger a notification when the pid disappears.


On macOS:

$ brew install noti

On any other:

$ go get -u
