Screenshot Just like with weechat you can now receive Android notifications on Termux when you receive a message in Profanity. I wrote a small plugin to achive exactly that. You can download it from GitHub and install it with /plugins install ./profanity-termux-notification/termuxnotify.py. Read more about the installation requirements and configuration options on GitHub.

Screenshot I managed to build a bridge between Termux and Minimalistic Text using Tasker. I use it to display the last 20 lines of the #termux irc channel as you can see in the picture. I've done it without having Tasker check a file every two minutes. The Task is directly called from the script.
