Source Notify - Menu bar App to manage your Pull Requests (macOS)

Forums > App Announcements

Something that ever annoyed me since I started working with other developers, are the (too) many notifications we receive about Pull Requests and even worst, when you change your git client (in my case from Bitbucket Servers->Github->Gitlab), you have to customise those notifications to your preferences, or worst, have to manage notifications from 2 git clients. This was the beginning of Source Notify, a place where was able to manage my notifications whatever git I wanted used and without receiving a notification every-time someone changed a comma, so I made myself the simple question:

Source Notify was developed for those who use Github, GitLab, Bitbucket or Bitbucket Servers to manage their Pull Requests. The app allows the user to manage their Pull Requests from all the git clients in one place and in the macOS menu bar showing all the necessary data the developer needs to check before going to the website.

Pull Requests management was always a bit annoying to do, because after a couple of hours receiving that someone of your team commented, pushed, merged something on a Git would make you turn off the notifications or just ignore them because they are just to much. From now on, this is not a problem anymore, Source Notify let’s you see if you have any comments or if you need to approve a Pull Request by simply showing you icons and the most amazing thing is that it doesn’t do any sounds to let you know you have new notifications, it simply shows a different icon on the menu bar if that is the case, and like that you check them when you have the time on your timeline.

Source Notify, allows you to see the build status of your last commit! YES, you read it well, no more going to your git client website or waiting for that notification on slack saying the build passed, that is over! Source Notify shows you easily the build status on your Pull Request!

Let’s imagine you are subscribed to some Repository but you don’t want to receive any notification on the Pull Requests, Source Notify lets you filter whatever Repositories are important for you to follow! No more spam for you!

Source Notify comes with a free plan, where you can connect a Github account and have one filtered repository.

You can try Premium for one week for free!
