Hey folks,

ntfy (pronounce: notify) is a simple HTTP-based pub-sub notification service. You can use it to send push notifications to your phone via HTTP PUT/POST.

You can use it like this (see the docs for dozens more features):

curl -d "Backup successful" ntfy.sh/mytopic

Feel free to ask anything about ntfy here or on the Discord/Matrix.

If you’d like to become a sponsor, I would be humbled to accept your donation via GitHub Sponsors or Liberapay 💸💰.

    I have only discovered ntfy.sh a month ago and it’s absolutely amazing. Does exactly what it says, it’s amazingly easy to use. So far I’ve used it to get notifications from my Pi, a Jenkins server I’m running on a VM and to control a NodeMCU module at home. It’s absolutely awesome, thank you so much!

        I noticed it’s missing some Arduino examples, so I’ll look into adding some if you’d like.

        This doesn’t exactly fit in your examples page, but here’s an one liner I used last night to notify me when the DNS changes I made to my domain have propagated:

        while true; do ping -c 1 example.com | grep $IP && curl -d "DNS changes have propagated" https://ntfy.sh/mynotifications && break; sleep 1m; done

    Thank you so much for making this. When I get the time, I plan on using unifiedpush to do message notifications from lemmy, and allow subscribing to them with jerboa.

      Sorry I just saw this. I chuckled a little bit when you said “when you get the time”, given that you literally have a back lock as high as the Empire State building ;-)

      I’m sure there are other volunteers who can help. I’ll reach out to the Unified Push guys.

    This is pretty cool! I’m wondering if I could use it to replace my local mail server with it. Currently I use my local mail server for ZFS alerts and backup notices.
