Sound alarm when code finishes
I am in a situation where my code takes extremely long to run and I don't want to be staring at it all the time but want to know when it is done.
How can I make the (Python) code sort of sound an "alarm" when it is done? I was contemplating making it play a .wav file when it reaches the end of the code...
Is this even a feasible idea? If so, how could I do it?
import winsound duration = 1000 # millisecond freq = 440 # Hz winsound.Beep(freq, duration)
Where freq is the frequency in Hz and the duration is in milliseconds.
On Linux (and Mac)
import os duration = 1 # second freq = 440 # Hz os.system('play --no-show-progress --null --channels 1 synth %s sine %f' % (duration, freq))
In order to use this example, you must install
On Debian/Ubuntu/LinuxMint you need to run in your terminal:
sudo apt install sox
Here is the macports way of doing that...run this is your terminal:
sudo port install sox
Speech on Mac
And something really cool if you're using a mac in terminal, maybe can do the same in windows, but I only know for sure for mac, this will tell you it's done:
import os os.system('say "your program has finished"')
Speech on Linux
import os os.system('spd-say "your program has finished"')
You need to install the
speech-dispatcher package in Ubuntu (or the corresponding package on other distributions):
sudo apt install speech-dispatcher
