Dunstify is an alternative to the notify-send command which is completely compatible to notify-send and can be used alongside it, but offers some more features. Dunstify works only with the Dunst notification daemon.

Additionally to the options available in notify-send, dunstify offers some more features like IDs and actions.


Dunstify is available through the AUR. Simply install the dunstifyAUR package.

Notification ID

You can assign an ID to a notification by calling dunstify with the -r ID option, where ID needs to be an integer. If a notification with that ID already exists it will be replaced with the new one(therefore the long option name --replace=ID).

Furthermore you can close a notification by using dunstify --close=ID.
