Question Growl Plugin

I'm trying to understand how to add the Growl Plug-In to my HS3 system. Id doesn't show up in the list of Plug-Ins and everything I've referenced talks about some download files. How is it installed?

Thank you for your assistance.

Bryan

I think that was for HS2. Also it had major problems if I recall correctly.

Growl

I use Growl on my system with Prowl on the Iphone.
On HS2 I did use the growl plugin - but on HS3 found it easier to call the growl functions from a script.

I call a script called Growl Message.vb from an event and populate the message:

using Sub or Function = Main & Parameters = Message to send

sub Main (byVal msg_short As String)

Dim url
Dim url_response

url = "apikey=*****************************************&applicatio n=HS3&event=" &msg_short
url_response = hs.URLAction("https://api.prowlapp.com/publicapi/add", "POST", url, "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded")

End Sub

The apikey is the key given when registering growl.

Hope this helps.

So it's not installed through the Plug-Ins tab in HS3 like other Plug-Ins?

I haven't found any HS3 specific plugin.
I find that executing growl from the script to be more reliable - I used to have issues with the HS2 plugin where it would freeze and stop sending messages. I did eventually stop using the HS2 plugin and moved to the script method.

As an alternative there is an excellent pushover plugin for HS3. It is not in the updater but is easy to find. IMHO it is way better for notifications to mobile. In addition there is a pushalot plugin that I think is in the updater that is pretty good for notifications to windows 10 clients.
