Sending Push Notifications To Web Application Without User Consent
I want to send push notifications to my web application users on the occurrence of certain events by updating an icon with a red dot. This is similar to Facebook updating the "notification bell" icon with a dot, on receiving a message or getting a new friend request
I have tried to send notifications to the web app, but it requires the user to "allow notifications" before sending it.
Note that, Facebook/Twitter or any other social media sites can notify users even if the user explicitly blocks all the notifications for the website.
Socket.io is quite handy for this. You can just listen/emit some events at both client and server and act accordingly (in your case, updating the "notification bell" icon)

- → Browserify api: how to pass advanced option to script
- → Node.js Passing object from server.js to external modules?
- → gulp-rename makes copies, but does not replace
- → requiring RX.js in node.js
- → Remove an ObjectId from an array of objectId
- → Can not connect to Redis

- → Express - better pattern for passing data between middleware functions
- → Can't get plotly + node.js to stream data coming through POST requests
