I have been using Web Alert (Google Play) for quite some time and find it the most useful one.
It's completely free but it is only available on android phones. Web Alert is simple, it has a ton of functionality and it does not seem to affect my battery life or waste my mobile data usage in any noticeable way (although I'm screening seven web pages at the ...
Tasker might be an app to go with here. It doesn't come for free (there's a 7 day trial at their homepage, but then it's ~USD 5 if you really want to use it after that), and it requires some effort to get into it – but if you ask me, it's definitely worth it. Other apps from "the same section" (Automation apps) might be able to achieve what you want, but I ...
Ubuntu already includes a disk space warning alert as part of dconf.
You can configure the settings by installing the dconf-tools:
sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
Start the dconf Editor:
Press CRTL + F to show the find option.
Enter "disk space" and click on "Next"
You can set the free percent warning to whatever you like.
This example ...
How about this:
A simple POSIX compliant shell script. I tested it with both GNU and
busybox versions of wget and in bash and ash. It opens a
connection every 10 seconds and exits when a connection is
established. It informs the user that the website is up by displaying
a message box using zenity framework.
Alternatively, instead of using zenity it ...
You can use Chime.
It's perfect! I found it recently while browsing through the Chrome Store (because that's just what I do ;p)
You can just click the icon next to the address bar and any outstanding notification will be shown. You can mark them as read and ...
I would strongly recommend Sentry on Premise
Self-hosted application ✓
Error grouping (most wanted) ✓
Detail and custom error information
(stacktrace, my custom php process identifier that i use for grepping
through logs etc) ✓
Some kind of notification that we got new error,
identified by new stacktrace maybe ✓
And optional, some metrics for
cases when we ...
Well, you can tweak the specifics, but I'd use gmail, IFTT and pushbullet to do different parts of this.
You can set IFTT to trigger off an action on a channel on a message from a specific email address on gmail.
I'd use pushbullet's chrome extention or the desktop app to trigger off a notification on your PC though you can pick something else - even some ...
Trackly is worth a look, it will email you an image of the webpage with changes highlighted. Hourly and daily checks available.
It's free while in beta.
I recently developed My Battery Is Dead for Android to solve this exact problem. Please let me know if you are missing any features or find any bugs.
Contact multiple recipients
Adjust the battery level notification threshold
The battery monitor can be paused
My suggestion would be to use a chat app such as Empathy or even Discord. Both will send GNOME pop-up notifications and are trivial to install.
Otherwise you could always make an email for just this purpose and use Ubuntu's built-in client.
As requested by Angelo Fuchs, I post this as an answer though it doesn't contain an app recommendation:
Having done a pretty thorough search (while updating my list of apps for notification manipulation along) I'm pretty sure that such an app does not exist. My research not only included several major market platforms (Google, F-Droid, Aptoide), but also ...
From what I know, there's no tool that can notify you via email as a built-in feature. But there are some additional tools that can help you achieve this!
Although, I just found this. Wing FTP Server seems to exactly cover what you're looking for! But I've not tested it and have no experience with it.
First you need a suitable FTP Client. If you don't know ...
There are some examples around "hello world" level on Github:
fsnoop prints a lot of events about everything. You can filter them;
fanotify_watch prints events for writing files;
fanotify-cmd - monitor just one file
fanotify - you can specify events, but I haven't managed to get any output from it
Update: one more notable tool: fatrace.
I cobbled together something around a matrix-synapse homeserver and the navi notification bot for it
Navi's used to send notifications to my homeserver. That's in a private room my regular user can see and as such I get notifications for my matrix clients.
I currently have riot as a webui so I can check notifications on my PC (I'd need something better ...
Using python, (already installed on most Linux systems), + Requests & BeautifulSoup you can simply poll the OpenStreetMap page - something like:
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
resp = requests.get('https://www....
I think you might be able to get MonetDB to do that. Or rather, I'm sure you can do it in a not-fun way by writing a custom MAL module which wraps your C++ code - which you would add to a clone of the MonetDB codebase, since MonetDB is FOSS; then you could submit queries in MAL (the operation interpreter into which MonetDB parses SQL queries) which use your ...
As Steve said, you don’t really need a database that was coded in C++, unless you plan to extend its functionality. All you care about is a database that interfaces well with C++.
For that, you need a database connector https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Database_connection and (almost?) all popular databases will offer one.
Have you decided whether you want/...
I don't know an app specifically for your requirements, but I think you'll find Notification History useful to see the list of dismissed notifications.
On some phones, there's also a pre-installed widget called Notification Log for the exact purpose.
Well, if there is an RSS feed for your profile, that you can use an application like feedreader.com to track it,
Feedreader Online is one of the best Google Reader alternatives allowing you to view all of your feeds any way you want.
Otherwise, what I do is I use a Firefox Add-on called Distill. It basically takes snapshots of a ...
Simply use Tasker
Install it on your kids phone and make a simple profile to do what you need.
Or a better way would be to use
Tasker+Tasker app factory (which is sister app for Tasker, to make android apps)
With these two apps you can make very very light weight app really very easily on your android phone.
And install the app you made to your kids ...
Installing a command line tool will need a terminal app to be installed on your device. Instead you can use following third-party tools
Tasker can do these things for you.
Just a little heads-up. It is a paid app and a trial version is available. Please test it before you buy. It needs little advanced understanding.
There is also Trigger
Simple, free ...
I've personally been using Snarl lately. I've predominantly been just using built and I haven't done any low level custom notifications so far; I have done custom notifications through the Grunt-Nofity plugin for Grunt.
Responsiveness and appearances I've quite liked although I did disable a lot of the built in updates - because at least on a laptop which ...
