Introducing my Pushover Action for Growl

Since moving my network monitoring and other mobile device notifications across to Pushover, I have missed the ability to forward Growl notifications on my Macs. Growl 2.0 ships with plugins for Boxcar and Prowl, but not Pushover. For simple scenarios like HardwareGrowler being able to tell me when someone has accidentally unplugged a hard drive on my media centre, this was really cool.

With that, here is my Growl-Pushover action style / plugin for Growl 2.0. It has all the usual filters like an idle Mac and minimum priorities, and with the new action configuration engine in Growl 2.0 can be quite powerful in forwarding specific notifications to Pushover.

The plugin is fully open, and the source is available on GitHub. For those who don’t wish to compile it themselves, signed and supported binaries are available on the project page.

    I’ve been looking for this since I started to use Pushover! Thank you for the plugin!
    But after I installed it nothing happened on the actions pannel on Growl. Only the default: Boxcar, MailMe, Prowl, SMS etc.. I tried to reinstall and it tell me that was already installed. I looked for the growl plugins and nothing was there also (root and user). I’m on Growl 2.0.1 and OS X 10.7.5.

    Can you help me!?

    Thank you!

      Hey Mario!

      Sorry about that. I have just released version 1.2 which should now load on Lion. Source is not yet on GitHub, but will be there later today when I get a chance.

      You can download the new version by clicking the green download button here.

    Thanks for sharing this, works great! I’ve been having issues with Prowl not being too reliable so decided to give this a try.
