Poll: Would anyone be interested in Chrome push notifications for OSSN. Chrome Only!

bryce alvord Posted in Component Development 6 months ago

So I was thinking it might be cool to write a component that upon receiving an OSSN notification you could also opt into receiving push notifications from Chrome letting you know you received that OSSN notification. Thoughts?

Now, I know pretty much nothing about chromes push notification API and whether or not there are rules of use like sending frequency, purpose of the notification, etc. so there of course is the possibility that it can't even be done but I wouldn't mind looking into it if there is interest. Again, this would be for Chrome only, I'm not looking to target smaller userbases like Firefox or edge-chromium. And IE, well, it's just a no go from the start.

Finally if anyone has experience with this API and could offer input that would be great too!

As Arsalan pointed out, I would suggest Web Push Notifications as those are more cross platform. Another possibility is using Toast notifications: https://www.patternfly.org/v3/pattern-library/communication/toast-notifications/index.html

Toast notifications are quite a good alternative imo as they can look almost native on mobile: https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/ui/notifiers/toasts
