Description Christos Margiolis 2021-05-24 17:48:22 UTC
Created attachment 225229 [details]

`nfy` is a minimal and daemonless notification program for X. In order to queue multiple notifications, `nfy` uses a lockfile. It also has a non-blocking behavior, so that it can be useful inside scripts.

Configuration is done by editing a `config.h` file and recompiling the source code. The port already comes with a configured version of `nfy`, but you can use your own `config.h` file by compiling the port with the `NFY_CONF=/path/nfy/config.h` option.

The source code can be found at: https://git.christosmarg.xyz/nfy/files.html
