Tony Gumbel has just released an awesome Pepper for Mint. It’s called Notification.
“Notification is a pane-less Mint pepper that sends the site owner an email when a specified criteria is met. The user can select between total or unique visits for either the hour, day, week, month, or overall time period. This could be used to find out when your site reaches a specific milestone, or to find out when previous months hits have been passed.”
Personally, I’m using Notification as an early warning system for sudden increases in traffic… like when you end up on digg, or slashdot. All you have to do is track total visits per hour, and set it to a number higher than your normal maximum. That way, you should be notified within one hour of the start of a traffic spike.
Thanks Tony, your work is greatly appreciated!

Wow, thanks for the plug Paul. I was surprised when I opened my RSS reader and saw this.
I haven’t recieved much feedback from anyone regarding bugs or feature requests. Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any ideas for the next release.
I am currently working on allowing multiple criteria, adding date and time stamps to the mail message, and having it send the notification to multiple email addresses specifically to allow notifications to be recieved on cell phones.
Great work Tony. This pepper is very handy. The only feature that I can think of is one you are already working on… multiple criteria.
I hadn’t thought about multiple email addresses, but that would be cool too.
Thanks for all your hard work!
