Alert System in Rust

I am developing an experimental app in RUST. It will read my Daily Routine Task from an ODS work sheet and display a popup / alert in linux/ windows system displaying a message.

I have worked out all the basic functionality, now I need help how to display that alert message in Ubuntu/ Windows.

In Ubuntu you can use the notify-send command. You may have to install it first. It is unlikely that any solution works for both Ubuntu and windows.

For cross platform between linux and windows it looks like the notifica crate is what you're after. If you're okay using different solutions for each platform,notify-rust for linux and winrt-notifications for Windows are available. I have not used any of these crates. YMMV.
