p4notifier is a simple python script which periodically - using original p4 client - checks newest commits in observed paths of repository depots. It runs in background and notifies user with a list of most recent commits.

It can be run on Windows as well Linux.

[ProjectA]
host=10.0.0.10:1666
workspace=foo
user=bar
pass=qwerty
path=//devel/ProjA/...
limit=10

[ProjectB]
host=10.0.0.10:1666
workspace=foo
user=bar
pass=qwerty
path=//devel/ProjB/...
limit=10
