Can I sent a push notification to my phone from the linux terminal?


Hi all,

I would like to send a push notification to my phone after a task is completed on my linux desktop. For example after encoding videos is completed. Is this possible?

PS: This will be done locally via wifi as my linux machine and phone are on the same wifi network space. Thank you

Another method is using SMS messages. Many mobile carriers have the capability to send SMS messages via email using the cell phone number. For example Sprint is 1235551212@messaging.sprintpcs.com (replace with your real phone number and domain name). You can use mutt configured with your email provider via the command line to send the message.

I have been using pushbullet to send notifications to my android phone. After installing pushbullet on the phone I used curl to find out the id of the device and then use curl and my api key to send notifications.

You can find the pushbullet api and some examples here: https://docs.pushbullet.com/#api-quick-start


This is the command I currently use to send a notification to my phone
Code:
curl https://api.pushbullet.com/v2/pushes -k -u XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX: -d device_iden=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX -d type=note -d title="Incoming call" -d body="Phone call from $LOOKUP - $1" -X POST

Hmm...same LAN and Linux desktop involved? If you're running KDE, look at KDE Connect...I've been using it with good results. You say "from the linux terminal" in your subject, which is a bit unclear. Do you mean from a terminal window, or do you mean from the Desktop environment in general?

Hello everyone, sorry I took awhile to get back to this forum.

@ BW-userx: Thanks for the link, but I believe this info is more suited for developers.

@ michaelk: Setting up an email server to send email is complex for me. I tried in the past.

@ af7567: PushBullet seems interesting. I might give it a try in the future.

@ TB0ne: I was referring to the terminal window to type commands.

During my research, I found a way to do this by using Node.js, notify-cli, a Node.js package and an android app called Notify. It was quite easy to setup and the usage to send a push notification to the phone is very simple.

https://nodejs.org/en/
https://mashlol.github.io/notify/

Thanks All for suggestions and replies

I like this approach better then the Node.js method. Nodejs is a Javascript Runtime environment and we know how much of a security reputation java has.

I am now using Kde Connect and it works like a charm. Thanks to both.
