For all the notifiers, Notify on Snatch sends a message whenever a book/magazine is sent to one of the downloaders. Notify on Download sends a message when a snatched book/magazine has been successfully downloaded and added to the library. Some notifiers have the ability to send a test message to check the notifications work. For notifiers that can send to multiple devices, the test message will return a list of valid device IDs.

Enable Custom Notification

This is a special notifier, which is a script to run. There are some example scripts with lazylibrarian. You can use it, for example, to notify a system we don't support yet. There is an example script in python and another in bash that shows how the notifiers work. There is also that can be used as a notifier to make sure you have a copy of both mobi and epub for all new downloads. It uses calibre ebook-convert to create one format from another. Use it as a base for your own notifiers. The notifiers are passed a list of database columns for a book or magazine, and details of the download source. See the examples for full details.

If you create any other notifiers that you think might be useful to others, please upload them!

1. The old notifiers for Twitter and Telegram have options to setup authorisation, apprise needs you to already be authorised
2. The old email notifier is used for messaging user accounts and emailing book attachments so may still be needed
