Compilation notifications in Emacs

- Tags: emacs

Here is a little Emacs Lisp snippet that I've started using. It makes Emacs pop up a desktop-wide notification when a compilation finishes, i.e. after "M-x compile" is done. Let's see if that keeps me from wasting time in the web when I launch a compilation.

(setq compilation-finish-functions
      (append compilation-finish-functions

(defun fmq-compilation-finish (buffer status)
  (call-process "notify-send" nil nil nil
        "-t" "0"
        "-i" "emacs"
        "Compilation finished in Emacs"
