Push Notifications on Mobile Phone

Reported by: gamicord's profile gamicord Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 9.1.1
Component: Core Keywords:


When there are activities on our Facebook, we are able to receive them as push notifications on our Mobile Phones.

How can we achieve the same thing with BuddyPress? So that if activities happen on our BuddyPress website, we can receive the Notification on our Mobile Phone?

Would BuddyPress consider adding this Feature

Hi this should not a feature (it is plugin territory). BUT I can say (as someone building a buddypress plugin to do web push notifications) that a couple of modification to the buddypress notification functions would make plugin development in this space much easier

  1. Decouple the fetching/looping from the formatting of notifications, bp_notifications_get_notifications_for_user should be a wrapper for a loop that invokes one of two formatting functions on each notification (one function to return a string and one an object)
  1. when an object is returned it should be MUCH richer and include attributes like title, icon etc. which would enable notification to be consumed by many other channels e.g. specific apps, JavaScript notifications and the browser web push api.
