Turn on 'New Notifications' in Ambient Display and also do not optimise the app.

Just installed this and it appears to be working. This is the first app that I see doing what I wanted (a very unobtrusive way of telling if notifications have arrived).

Did not need to to activate "New Notifications" under Ambient Display for it to work. Are you sure it's needed?

I'm not managing to customize the color of the colored stripes according to the app sending a notification. Not that I care too much, on Nexus 6P LED color was mostly irrelevant to me. I just needed a visual cue that something needed my attention if I missed the audio one.

I didn't do anything with new notifications either, but I am glad it's working for you.

I got it working but it times out after 1 minute. I have my display set to sleep after 1 minute of inactivity but if this follows that rule it's kind of useless for notifications.

Maybe I'm missing a setting?

Edit: found the setting I was missing.

What setting? I also see this behaving strangely. It seems that, as other apps, it gets killed in the background even if one opts not to battery optimize it.
OP behaves exactly like Apple in this regard: they get to decide how I should use *my* smarphone.

The setting at the top when you go into select apps

These right here let it run indefinitely. I tested last night and it was telling me I had a notification until I actually dismissed it after 30 minutes.

Yeah, I set all that. Results have been inconsistent as far as working after long inactivity is concerned.
I wish OP had thought of baking something similar in their OS, when they decided to take away the LED.

I agree, I wish OnePlus had baked something like this into the stock ROM. My second screenshot doesn't look like it posted for some reason so here it is.

5% battery usage. Not cool. This with "Stable" edge styling, which should be the best for battery.
Uninstalling.
