Python Desktop Notifier using Plyer module

This article demonstrates how to create a simple Desktop Notifier application using Python. A desktop notifier is a simple application which produces a notification message in form of a pop-up message on desktop. We will be using plyer module for the same.

Module Needed

  1. time: This module works with the time object and is installed by default
  2. Plyer: Plyer module is used to access the features of the hardware. This module does not comes built-in with Python. We need to install it externally. To install this module type the below command in the terminal.
pip install plyer 

Approach:

Step 1) Import the notification class from the plyer module

from plyer import notification

Step 2) After that you just need to call the notify method of this class.

Syntax: notify(title=”, message=”, app_name=”, app_icon=”, timeout=10, ticker=”, toast=False)



Parameters:

  • title (str) – Title of the notification
  • message (str) – Message of the notification
  • app_name (str) – Name of the app launching this notification
  • app_icon (str) – Icon to be displayed along with the message
  • timeout (int) – time to display the message for, defaults to 10
  • ticker (str) – text to display on status bar as the notification arrives
  • toast (bool) – simple Android message instead of full notification

Step 3) Add the sleep function to show that notification again.

Below is the implemenation.
