Is there a way to get push notifications?

WhatSAB itself does not offer push notifications, but you can use a third party service like Boxcar, Prowl or Pushover.

You need to create a script that sends the push notification to one of those services (for example as a pre-queue script or when a download finishes) and activate that script in sabnzbd. See the sabnzbd wiki for more information on pre-queue scripts and user scripts.

Once you receive such a push notification on your iDevice you can configure the receiving app to open WhatSAB. Use the following custom URLs:

  1. whatsab://downloads
    This opens the downloads tab, useful for pre-queue  scripts notifying you about new downloads
  2. whatsab://history
    Opens the history tab, useful for user scripts notifying you about completed or failed downloads
