JoliNotif is a PHP library to send notifications to your desktop directly from your script. It takes care of using the right binary available, without having to worry if you're running on Linux, Windows or MacOS.

About JoliNotif

JoliNotif is a cross-platform PHP library to display desktop notifications. It works on Linux, Windows or MacOS.

Requires PHP >= 7.2 (support for PHP 5 was available in version 1.x, for PHP 7.0 and 7.1 in version < 2.1.0).

Note: This library can not be used in a web context (FPM or equivalent). Use it in your CLI scripts or in a [CRON](doc/04-advanced-usage.md#notification-in-cron)


Use Composer to install JoliNotif in your project:

composer require "jolicode/jolinotif"


Use the NotifierFactory to create the correct Notifier (adapted to your OS), then use it to send your notification:

include __DIR__.'/vendor/autoload.php';

use Joli\JoliNotif\Notification;
use Joli\JoliNotif\NotifierFactory;

// Create a Notifier
$notifier = NotifierFactory::create();

// Create your notification
$notification =
    (new Notification())
    ->setTitle('Notification title')
    ->setBody('This is the body of your notification')
    ->addOption('subtitle', 'This is a subtitle') // Only works on macOS (AppleScriptNotifier)
    ->addOption('sound', 'Frog') // Only works on macOS (AppleScriptNotifier)

// Send it

A [shell executable](doc/05-cli-usage.md) is also provided to use JoliNotif from CLI:

jolinotif --title "Hello" --body "World"
