Pusfofefe

A Pushover client for Sailfish OS.

If you do not have a Pushover account, this app is of no use to you.

You will need to have razcampagne's repos enabled for ECL and EQL5, since Pusfofefe depends on these.

Pushover is a notification service for desktop, Android, iOS and now also Sailfish OS. To paraphrase their website: "Pushover is a service to receive instant push notifications on your phone or tablet from a variety of sources". (For the current version of this app "instant push notifications" is a lie, since it polls every 10 minutes by default.)

It has many third-party integrations and an easy API for your own scripts and programs.

The author of Pusfofefe is not affiliated with Pushover.

The source code is available here: https://git.sr.ht/~aerique/pusfofefe

Note: I have removed the older packages before v2.0. I see no point in keeping them and the change in config format will only give problems.

Known Issues

  • Having two remorse actions running at the same time will result in only one being executed (and an error on STDOUT when running from the CLI).
  • No Pushover websocket / "push" support.  So when there are new messages one Pushover server it can take up to the refresh time defined in settings before they're retrieved by the Pusfofefe app.
  • When running from the CLI you'll see `[W] unknown:-1 - <Unknown File>: Syntax error` when downloading messages or logging in.  It seems to be connected to spawning threads in ECL and even happens when the `download-messages-thread` or `login-and-register-thread` functions are empty.  When these functions are not called the error does not appear.  However, it does not seems to affect the running of those functions.  I have not investigated this further.

Yeah, if you want your device to be more like Android... I detest getting crap pushed on me, and one of the best things about Sailfish is being left alone. This app is an abomination.

Apparently you don't know that this app is absolutely optional to install, so I will throw some wisdom at ya: don't install this app. Problem solved.
