Growl Notifications Using Clojure
I just pushed some Clojure code that allows one to create Growl notifications from within Clojure. It works by instantiating an AppleScript engine and sending apple script snippets to the engine which in turn communicates with the GrowlHelperApp.
Here are some unit tests to show how it can be used.
(ns growl-clj.test-core (:use [growl-clj.core]) (:use [clojure.test])) (deftest test-growl-enabled? (if growl-enabled? (print ">>>>>>>>>>> Growl is enabled") (print ">>>>>>>>>>> Growl is NOT enabled"))) (deftest test-register-app "Registering application with Growl" (let [available-notifications ["system" "user"] enabled-notifications ["system" "user"] app-name "MyApp"] (register-app available-notifications enabled-notifications app-name))) (deftest test-notify "You should see a Growl notification after running this test" (let [notification-name "user" title "hello from test" message "nice! it works" app-name "MyApp"] (notify notification-name title message app-name)))
