Page: GrowlGrails, Version:1


Author: Marc Palmer

Growl is a generic but slick notification framework for OS X. This script bundle adds configurable notifications for common grails script events, so that for example you can have it automatically pop up a message when your "grails run-app" has completed, or an error has occurred while running a grails command.

It sounds lame, but actually its incredibly useful when you multi-task and let grails go and "do its thing" while you get on with something else. It also lends a welcome visual element to grails.

Requirements: Grails 0.5.5 or higher, and Growl must be installed and working.

Installation: Download and unzip the contents to ~/.grails so that it creates a ~/.grails/lib and ~/.grails/scripts. That's it. Now run a grails command! Go to Growl preferences pane in OS X to configure the style of notification and which events you want to be notified of.
