Usage & Documentation
Please see the documentation for current examples.
Checkout toastify, it exposes most of the functionality of the lib to the commandline.
This library shines on linux and bsd, which is its original target platform.
Lately it gained support for macOS thanks to mac-notification-sys.
However this only includes a small subset of the current functionality, since
NSNotifications don't have as many features. Please refer to the You are a versed macOS UI developer with mad Objective-C skillz? PRSV.
