projects :: Pushover Clients

Pushover Notification Clients is a push notification service. You can register for free and set up some applications for which you can then create groups of users and send notifications by using various clients. You have to pay for the ‘receiving’ clients, but it is really cheap and absolutely worth it.

command line client (

I forked a shell script from github and added support for attachments. This way you can easily send images to pushover from the command line. The script is just a wrapper for curl, but also supports a config file to save your API keys.

command line client (pushover-cli)

Then I forked and enhanced another nice curl-wrapper script. This own was maintained and pretty complete. I just added support for file attachments and changed the config file location. It also features a quick install script and installs in /usr/local/bin/pushover.

rundeck plugin

Then i forked a github repo to enable push notifications from rundeck. Rundeck is an open-source job scheduler. The original script only supported simple notifiactions showing the status and the project name, but this enhancement adds a lot more information and also changes the priority to HIGH in case of a FAILURE.

Installation and setup is pretty simple and can be done in 5 minutes.

reads :: Schotten-Trilogie von David F. Ross

Die Schotten-Trilogie

David F. Ross hat mit diesen kurzweiligen Büchern das Lebensgefühl der 80er/90er wieder aufleben lassen. Wenn man Filme wie “Bube, Dame, König, Gras”, “Revolver” oder “Layer Cake” mag, dann kann man sich auch eine Verfilmung dieser Romane gut vorstellen.

Die Jugend ist durchgeknallt, hat aber Träume. Die Kleinstadtgangster sind wie sie sein müssen und auch Zigeuner dürfen nicht fehlen. Mit der Zeit überschlagen sich die Ereignisse und alles kulminiert in einem furiosen Finale mit Entführungen, Interviews, Drogen und auch Liebe. Herrlich.

Bisher sind 2 der 3 Romane erschienen:

  • Schottendisco
  • Schottenrock
  • … ich bin gespannt …


projects :: XSL Trafo

XSL Trafo

Simple JavaFX based app to test XSL transformations. It is available as fat-jar: if you have Java installed, just run it or use ‘java -jar xsltrafo.jar’. It has not many features yet and is purely for my own purposes. You can use drag and drop on the ‘file’ tabs (xml and xslt).
