Notebook web notifications¶
Jupyter notebook extension to display a web notification to notify you when the kernel becomes idle. This can be useful when running tasks that take more than a couple of seconds to complete.
The extension has been tested with the most recent versions of Firefox, Chrome and Safari.
Initially, a button to request notification permissions is shown in the toolbar. After notification permissions have been granted, this button is replaced by a dropdown menu with five choices: Disabled, 0, 5, 10 and 30. To activate notifications, select a minimum kernel busy time required to trigger a notification (e.g. if selecting 5, a notification will only be shown if the kernel was busy for more than 5 seconds). The selection is saved in the notebook’s metadata and restored when the notebook is re-opened.
You may configure the plugin so that notifications require manual dismissal before disappearing. Browser support is limited, see here to check if your browser supports this. You may also configure the plugin so that notifications play a sound.
