Snarl is all about notifications. They can be displayed on-screen in a variety of shapes, colours and sizes; they may be spoken out loud, sent to your mobile phone, another computer, and so on. All made possible by an easy-to-implement API that applications use to generate notifications and a simple user interface to manage them. But that’s not all…

To install snarl, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install snarl

To upgrade snarl, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade snarl

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.


This package has no dependencies.
