PHP-Growl is a PHP class that makes sending
Growl notifications over a network easy. The code is
released under the MIT Open Source License
and hosted on GitHub. Basically, that means
you’re free to use the code in any way you like – including commercial
projects. The only catch is that I’m not liable for anything that goes wrong
as a result of you using my code. Oh, and if you do use it, could you send me
an email telling me about it? I love learning about other people using

Growl Pepper

I originally wrote this code as part of my Growl Pepper plugin
for Shaun Innman’s Mint stats tracking software. Anytime
someone visited a page on my website the server would send a Growl
notification to my computer. It’s not very practical, but it is fun to see
visitors on your site in real-time.

Using the code is pretty simple:

If all goes well (and you have UDP port 9887 open in your firewall settings) your Growl notification should go through.
