While I was fiddling with my
.bashrc today, I noticed an BASH Alias called alert. You ever had a job like
rsync running, doing other stuff beside it and missed that the job already finished? With
alert not anymore.
alert is using
notify-send to send an Desktop Notification with the last executed command. It can even tell you, if the command was successful or not by looking at the exit code. I found it perfect for notifying a long running job finished.
