NodeJS Push notifications

Web notification

First, you will need to install Push.js module.

$ npm install push.js --save

Or import it to your front-end app through CDN

<script src="./push.min.js"></script> <!-- CDN link -->

After you are done with that, you should be good to go. This is how it should look like if u wanna make simple notification:

Push.create('Hello World!')

I will assume that you know how to setup with your app. Here is some code example of my backend app with express:

var app = require('express')();
var server = require('http').Server(app);
var io = require('')(server);
app.get('/', function (req, res) {
 res.sendfile(__dirname + '/index.html');
io.on('connection', function (socket) {
 socket.emit('pushNotification', { success: true, msg: 'hello' });

After your server is all set up, you should be able to move on to front-end stuff. Now all we have to do is import CDN and add this code to my index.html file:

<script src="../"></script> <!-- CDN link -->
 var socket = io.connect('http://localhost');
 socket.on('pushNotification', function (data) {
 Push.create("Hello world!", {
 body: data.msg, //this should print "hello"
 icon: '/icon.png',
 timeout: 4000,
 onClick: function () {

There you go, now you should be able to display your notification, this also works on any Android device, and if u wanna use Firebase cloud messaging, you can use it with this module, Here is link for that example written by Nick (creator of Push.js)
