Important Caveats

  • As it stands (May 18, 2020), this is simply a notification service. There is no support for embedding custom actions (buttons, dialogs) regardless of platform. Other then telling you if the shell command was sent, there is also no confirmation on user action on the notification.

  • macOS does not support custom icons on the fly.. You will need to bundle a customized version of the notifier embedded with your custom icon.


Windows Specific.

  • No support for balloon tips (pre Win10).. This will be changed in the future.
