cidalert is a caller-id notification program, designed to be used with VOIP phones.

Some VOIP phones have the ability to sent notifications upon certain events; cidalert runs a small http service to receive the Incoming call alert from the phone and then uses libnotify to display the details of the Caller-ID number (and optionally, a name) on the screen.

Requirements:

Bottle: http://bottlepy.org/ python-notify: http://www.galago-project.org

Basic install:

python setup.py build python setup.py install

Phone configuration:

Configure your phone to send call alerts to the following url, substituting <CALLER_ID_VARIABLE> with the specific caller-id placeholder name for your phone.

http://your.host.name:8998/call?callerid=<CALLER_ID_VARIABLE>

For Snom phones, go to Setup -> Action URL Settings and put the following in the box beside Incoming Call:

http://your.host.name:8998/call?callerid=$display_remote
