I've written some functions for MATLAB that might be useful to you. You can download the files by clicking the icon in front of it.
Notify.mThis function allows a user to send a notification to the notification center of the Mac. To use this file, one must have homebrew installed. You can install homebrew by entering the following into your terminal: ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
Pushbullet.pyThis is a simple program that runs a simplified Pushbullet GUI application. In general, the module requests has to be installed. You also have to place a textfile in the same folder as the application with your pushbullet token in it (filename must be pb_token.txt).
