Just send a PUT or POST request to

You can customize the notification with a title, tags, emojis, etc.

I want Kdenlive to notify me when a video rendering is completed.
First, I create a new topic by pressing the ‘+’ button on the app and typing a topic name (e.g.: notifyvideosrs1). Then, inside Kdenlive, I go to
Settings -> Configure Notifications, I select
Rendering finished, and check
Run a command. Inside the text input, I type
/usr/bin/curl -d "Video rendered" ntfy.sh/notifyvideosrs1 (check the path of ‘curl’ in your computer). I click ‘OK’ and I will receive a notification on my phone when a rendering process finishes.
If you have any suggestion, feel free to contact me via social media or email.
