[SOLVED] Notification when a R process is finished [iTerm2] – Stack Overflow

Issue

This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by jgarces

I’m running R within a HPC and I’d like to be notified when a long running process is finished (within R terminal, not as a Rscript).

I know the way to do it is through triggers but I have no idea how to… any idea, please?



Solution

It’s simpler what I thought, but as anyone didn’t answer, here there’s my (posible) solution:

  1. Write a simple function called fin(): fin <- function(){print("fin")}
  2. Then go to Preferences > Profiles > Advanced > Triggers and add a new trigger based on function’s output: Regular expression = \[1\] "fin", Action = Post Notification… et voilá!
