Growler provides an interface for applications which send notifications in Growl-UDP (GrowlTalk) or Growl-GNTP (Growl Notification Transport Protocol) format. Unlike Growl and Growl for Windows, Growler use the built-in DSM notification. The functionality is similar to the desktop applications, but due to limitations of the DSM notification system, a few functions are not available (eg sticky, priority ..). The function of forwarding of notifications can be performed with the application Notification Forwarder (formely known as Network notifier).

      Forget that, saw the last comment before me. I registered a program (SABnzbd) but I'd like to figure out how to get notifications to be sent by the DSM to push service.

    Please update for DSM 5.0

    @Fabien: pls disable "Improve protection against cross-site request forgery attacks" in dsm settings - security. Don't forget to log out and in from DSM again after you disabled "Improve protection against cross-site request forgery attacks. This feature will only be deactivated after you have logged out of the DSM. The next version are able to run with this feature enabled.

    Hi, I am trying to install Growler to my DiskStation on DSM 4.1-2668. I have run perl-v and it shows that I have version 5.8.6 installed. When I try to install Growler via package manager from the source or via downloaded spk file I get the Following error : Please install "Perl2 before installing this package.
    Can you advise how to get around this issue? Thank you, Tom

    applications are mostly self registered, send a test message to growler.

    I've installed the Growler app on my Synology NAS.
    But now I can't find a way to register applications to the Growler app.

    Can you give me a short explanation?
    Al the other sites are in German, which is a common language to me.

    I can confirm the issue with safari and found the reason for this. I'll release a new version asap.


  10. r0b3rt wrote on Oct 30, 2012 at 01:58 PM

    Seems like difficulties is having Safari, in another browser works well.


  11. Matthieu wrote on Oct 25, 2012 at 12:36 PM

    @r0b3rt: Please send me a screenshot of your growler via mail (use our project address). Seems like your browser is having some difficulties or the application isn't loading correctly.
