I would like to use the alert.el package for notifications on windows 7. Therefore, I installed growl for windows and I can trigger notifications by using growlnotify.exe.

When customizing the alert package, there is an entry:

 Alert Growl Command: c:/Program Files/Tools/growlnotify.exe

But when I evaluate (alert "This is an alert"), nothing happens... I see no way to say alert to actually use growl. What am I missing?


It looks as if the Growl code in alert.el is incomplete.

If you redefine alert-growl-notify following this pull request at Github , then Growl should work for you.
