Sticky Notification Popups

Recommended Posts

It would be nice to have the option to have the notification center popup stay open until it's clicked.  In addition, it would be nice to be able to run a custom script when the notification popup is clicked.

 

Thoughts?

If I remember correctly, Notification Center doesn't offer that kind of control on a per-notification basis. You can set all Alfred's notifications to be 'Alerts' instead of 'Banners'; then you will have to manually dismiss every notification.

 

Growl, on the other hand, is VERY customizable and offers a 'sticky' setting for each message.

 

I would also love it if Alfred launched a script on clicking a notification (Growl or NC). For Growl, even a simple URL callback would be great  :)

I believe Tyler is correct. I don't think you have that kind of control over Notifications. With Growl though, you can specify these types of settings. I'm not sure of how it works with the new Workflows setup. I don't know if you can set a specific Workflow to display differently than others or not. 

 

Growlnotify (command line Growl) will allow you to set things like this though. This would only be helpful if you are looking to do this with a Workflow where you could manually call Growl. The documentation on their site doesn't indicate that Growlnotify supports callbacks yet but I'm pretty sure that it could be done with Applescript if you wanted to go that route.

In Alfred, if you set a notification output object to specifically be "Growl", then you can set it up to be sticky per output object. Using growl gives you much more control over the output.

Awesome! So growl gets me half way there with the stickies.  any plans on adding ability to run a script after it's been clicked?

 

Good chance that something like this will happen at some point during v2.x :)

Growl (using Applescript) and growlnotify can specify a URL to action on click, though not a script or system command. If you managed to set up a custom URL scheme, though.... ;)
