Browser Notifications

Jan 14, 2021 - edited Jan 14, 2021 - permalink

There appears to be some interest in signed-in site visitors getting a notification on their phone, rather just on the site. There is a way for web pages to do notification beyond the website, using 'Browser Notifications API', but there are few things:

  • Browser needs to be open, but can be in background (I haven't validated on Android)
  • Web page needs to be open, but does not need to be active
  • Does not work of iOS Safari (iPhone & iPad)
  • Currently you only find out about new notifications during a page reload

Would there be enough interest here to warrant the effort and where would this been on this list of features that Chainer would like to implement?

BTW You can test the technology here: https://www.bennish.net/web-notifications.html
