Pushover Action for Growl

Download Pushover Action for Growl
Visit the open-source project on GitHub


An action style for Growl 2.0 and higher that forwards Growl notifications to the Pushover notification service.

The features of this action style include:

  • Choose to forward to Pushover only when your Mac is idle
  • Choose to forward to Pushover only when a notification has a minimum priority
  • Choose custom notification sounds for individual notification types
  • Add a prefix to Notification titles to differentiate configurations or Macs.
  • Push only to a specific Pushover registered device.
  • Define your own custom application key.

The project is open, and the full source is available on GitHub. A signed and supported binary is available from the download link above.


To install the action style, simply download it, unzip it if needed, and double click the “GrowlPushover.growlView” file. Growl will prompt you to install the new style.
