Push Notifications - possible? will be?

Is there, or will there ever be, ability to trigger and process app notifications? The app I am currently working on does messaging between users and i would like it to somehow notify a user if they receive a message or not.

We just published a WIP tutorial that currently covers Android to http://docs.appgyver.com/tutorials/push-notifications – plan is to get iOS instructions up this week too!

Hi @Harri_Sarsa, is it also possible to utilise Push Notifications managed via BaaS services other than Firebase ?

For android push messages you need the Firebase cloud message api.

We will be monitoring community demand though, and once we get the 3rd party plugin system going, any BaaS offering their own SDK can be utilized.

What is that [Post token to backend] flow function in the tutorial? Is that a pseudo-function?

Yeah it’s just a placeholder by me, doesn’t actually have any functionality. If your backend has a api for the device token just use that to post it.

@Harri_Sarsa do you happen to already have an ETA for that(3rd party plugin system) ?

The roadmap is to get the new runtime beta going ASAP (weeks, not months) and the very next thing after that on the client/runtime track is the plugin system – we’ll tell you when we know a date to commit to. (You can sign up for the beta at https://forms.gle/9cSFfTWcNfif7dZs8.)

After following the push notification tutorial I can’t build the Android app. It is taking too much time and after it is ending with error
