In my previous post about netlify I showed how you can automatically rebuild your hugo blog with netlify through IFTTT. But there is also a reverse possibility:

Send a notification when your blog deployment fails or succeeds.

Here’s what we are going to do: let netlify send a message to a url that is picked up by IFTTT and let IFTTT send a message to pushover

The magic is in the ‘{event}’ part, replace he {event} part with a good event_name

Now we have to set up netlify
