I'm using iTerm2 on my Mac, build 3.1.3, and I am working with two tabs. One tab has my Python code in vim. The other one is where I actually run it with python code_here.py.

However, each time I edit in vim, save, and then switch tabs and run the same python code_name.py command, I constantly get this popup message:

Session IPython: Users/myname/ (vim) #1 just rang a bell!

How do I completely disable this popup? Actually, for that matter, I'd like to disable all such popup message from iTerm2.

    Preferences -> Profiles -> Terminal tab -> Check "Silence bell" ? – DavidPostill Oct 15 '17 at 17:54

    Both of ^^^ are significantly more helpful to me personally than the accepted answer. – cbmanica Jul 14 '20 at 22:04
  1. Apple System Preferences -> Notifications
  2. In the left list panel, scroll to find the entry for iTerm (or iTerm2).
  3. In the right control panel, set iTerm alert style to None.
