Gotify-CLI travus-badge badge-release

Gotify-CLI is a command line client for pushing messages to gotify/server. It is not required to push messages. See alternatives.

Features

  • stores token/url in a config file
  • initialization wizard
  • piping support (echo message | gotify push)
  • simple to use
  • watch and push script result changes (gotify watch "curl http://example.com/api | jq '.data'")

Alternatives

You can simply use curl, HTTPie or any other http-client to push messages.

$ curl -X POST "https://push.example.de/message?token=<apptoken>" -F "title=my title" -F "message=my message"
$ http -f POST "https://push.example.de/message?token=<apptoken>" title="my title" message="my message"

Installation

Manually

Download the latest release for your os: (this example uses version v2.2.0)

$ wget -O gotify https://github.com/gotify/cli/releases/download/v2.2.0/gotify-cli-linux-amd64
# or
$ curl -Lo gotify https://github.com/gotify/cli/releases/download/v2.2.0/gotify-cli-linux-amd64

Make gotify executable:

$ chmod +x gotify

Test if the Gotify-CLI works: (When it doesn't work, you may have downloaded the wrong file or your device/os isn't supported)

$ gotify version

It should output something like this:

Version:   2.2.0
Commit:    95cc125e39f805a1369b0c746c8bf3af15797a57
BuildDate: 2020-09-25-16:27:04

(optional) Move the executable to a folder on your $PATH:

$ mv gotify /usr/bin/gotify

Arch Linux

Gotify-CLI is available in the AUR, so you can install it with any AUR helper, i.e. yay:

$ yay -S gotify-cli

Maintenance of the AUR package is not performed by the Gotify team.

macOS

Gotify-CLI is available in Homebrew, so you can install it with:

$ brew install gotify

Maintenance of the Brew package is not performed by the Gotify team.

Usage

Now you can either run the initialization wizard or create a config manually. This tutorial uses the wizard.

$ gotify init

When you've finished initializing Gotify-CLI, you are ready to push messages to gotify/server.

Here are some examples commands, you can view the "push help" via gotify help push (or have a look at push help).

$ gotify push my message
$ gotify push "my message"
$ echo my message | gotify push
$ gotify push < somefile
$ gotify push -t "my title" -p 10 "my message"
$ gotify watch "curl http://example.com/api | jq '.data'"

  • /etc/gotify/cli.json
  • $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/gotify/cli.json
  • ~/.gotify/cli.json
  • ./cli.json

Structure

name description example
token an application token (a client token will not work) A4ZudDRdLT40L5X
url the URL to your gotify/server https://gotify.example.com
defaultPriority Default priority ( set to 0 if not present) 6

Config example

{
  "token": "A4ZudDRdLT40L5X",
  "url": "https://gotify.example.com",
  "defaultPriority": 6
}

Configuration option

If needed, you can disable SSL handcheck validation using an environment variable:

export GOTIFY_SKIP_VERIFY_TLS=True
