From Terminal,

osascript -l JavaScript -e "app=Application.currentApplication(); app.includeStandardAdditions = true; app.displayNotification('Hello, world', {withTitle: 'Title'})"

From Script Editor,

app = Application.currentApplication()
app.includeStandardAdditions = true
app.displayNotification('Hello, world', {withTitle: 'Title'})

    We need to link to the API documentation on the displayNotification function; I don't know what other parameters it accepts. – Sridhar Ratnakumar Sep 18 '14 at 4:02
  • The documentation is available in Script Editor's Library under StandardAdditions / User Interaction / displayNotification. The other available options are subtitle and soundName. – Chris Kobrzak Oct 3 '16 at 10:31
