For awhile now I've wished that Bamboo had an app, or something that could deliver a push notification when a build starts or finishes. Sure there is email, but that means my build notifications will get lost in all of the other junk I am quietly ignoring in my inbox.  What I want is a targeted notification for my builds. So I got to thinking, why not leverage Pushover?

I decided to setup some inline script tasks on one of my bamboo plans using the following code (supply your credentials accordingly), in order to give Bamboo push notifications.

Of course you can kick this up a notch by changing the message, using additional variables and throwing other notifications in at very stages of your build plans.
