electron-push-receiver

A module to bring Web Push support to Electron allowing it to receive notifications from Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM).

Why and how ?

See this blog post.

Install

npm i -S electron-push-receiver

Usage

  • In main.js / in main process :
const { setup: setupPushReceiver } = require('electron-push-receiver');

// Call it before 'did-finish-load' with mainWindow a reference to your window
setupPushReceiver(mainWindow.webContents);
  • In renderer process :
import { ipcRenderer } from 'electron';
import {
  START_NOTIFICATION_SERVICE,
  NOTIFICATION_SERVICE_STARTED,
  NOTIFICATION_SERVICE_ERROR,
  NOTIFICATION_RECEIVED as ON_NOTIFICATION_RECEIVED,
  TOKEN_UPDATED,
} from 'electron-push-receiver/src/constants';

// Listen for service successfully started
ipcRenderer.on(NOTIFICATION_SERVICE_STARTED, (_, token) => // do something);
// Handle notification errors
ipcRenderer.on(NOTIFICATION_SERVICE_ERROR, (_, error) => // do something);
// Send FCM token to backend
ipcRenderer.on(TOKEN_UPDATED, (_, token) => // Send token);
// Display notification
ipcRenderer.on(ON_NOTIFICATION_RECEIVED, (_, notification) => // display notification);
// Start service
ipcRenderer.send(START_NOTIFICATION_SERVICE, senderId);
