About this app

Send push notifications to your phone from any Bash or PowerShell script, or from your own app using PUT/POST requests, e.g. via curl on Linux or Invoke-WebRequest.

ntfy is an Android client for https://ntfy.sh, a free and open source HTTP-based pub-sub service. You can subscribe to topics in this app, and then publish messages via a simple HTTP API.

* Notify yourself when a long-running process is done
* Ping your phone when a backup has failed
* Alerts when someone logs into your server

Wonderful! Self-hosting on Docker and it works great. I just wish there would be a way to make the permanent notification disappear or less visible, but that's Android policy. A step more towards my cloud-dependency free life! Edit: thanks for the quick reply. I did not use this because it prevents instant delivery, or did I misunderstand the documentation?

Thanks for the kind words. You can hide the permanent notification pretty easily. There is a description in the docs: https://docs.ntfy.sh/subscribe/phone/#instant-delivery Edit: It doesn't prevent instant delivery. We chat chat further on Discord or Matrix.

It's exactly what I was looking for. I tried a self hosting with docker and works smooth. Great job!

This is fantastic for small projects where it isn't worth writing an app for it. Thank you so much for putting this together and hosting it!

What's new

This release is mainly a platform and dependency upgrade release, sprinkled with lots and lots of bugfixes. This version now targets SDK 33 (Android 13), and brings a few Android 13 specific improvements. Most prominently, ntfy now supports thematic/adaptic launcher icons.

Other than that, the app now doesn't crash anymore when you send large attachment images, and we fixed the notification icon color.
