Net_Growl = PHP + Growl

Posted in Mac, Other, PHP, Programming, Uncategorized on Feb 17, 2007

So today I was messing around with php & growl. So here is tip for getting started. First download growl if you dont have it already. Next install the php pear package

Once you have all the set-up. Go into your System Preferences and go into the Network tab in the growl settings. While in the Network tab make sure you click on “Listen for incoming notifications” & “Allow remote application registration” and set the password. I set my password to “123456”

Now type this piece of code.

The first time you run the file through your web browser OSX will prompt you with a message.
Just Click Always Allow unless you have a reason not to.

So once you have done everything from above you should now see a message like the one below.

Wasn’t that cool! so here are the all my files I used.

    Fernyb won’t you tell me your ip address, so I would kno where to connect? 😉

    Whether you knew my IP or not you would not be able to connect because I disable the listen for incoming notifications and allow remote application registration.

    I just downloaded this, and I get an error:

    Warning: require_once(PEAR.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /Server/www/growl/Net/Growl.php on line 35

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘PEAR.php’ (include_path=’.:’) in /Server/www/growl/Net/Growl.php on line 35

    I’m missing a file right?

    Well it seems like it can’t find PEAR.php
    and that is for the most time included in
    every pear package. check your php.ini settings
    also check the path to pear.
