auth0-apns

0.1.0 • Public • Published

apns.js

Apple APNS API v3 client (HTTP/2)

Requirements

Node ~> 6

Installation

npm install auth0-apns

Usage

Fist create your APNS instance, and avoid recreating it every time since it will cache the APNS token according to Apple Guidelines

const APNS = require('auth0-apns').APNS;
const apns = new APNS('{YOUR_APPLE_TEAM_IDENTIFIER}', { id: '{YOUR_APPLE_APN_KEY_ID}', pem: '{YOUR_APPLE_APN_KEY}'});

Then to send the notification you need to:

const notification = {
  aps: { alert: 'A notification sent from apns.js' }
};
apns
  .topic('{APNS_TOPIC}')
  .send(notification, '{DEVICE_TOKEN}')
  .then(response => console.log(response))
  .catch(error => console.error(error));

Parameters

  • APN Key: In order to send a push notification you need an APN key that can be generated and downloaded from the developer portal. With this key you will be able to send a push notification to any of your apps signed by your Apple developer team.
  • APN Key identifier: The identifier of the APN Key generated from the developer portal.
  • Apple Team identifier: Id of your Apple developer account, it can be found in developer portal.
  • APNS Topic: topic of the remote push notification which is usually your application bundle identifier.
  • Device Token: Token obtained by the iOS Application in a device

For more info on these values please check https://developer.apple.com/library/content/documentation/NetworkingInternet/Conceptual/RemoteNotificationsPG/Chapters/ApplePushService.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40008194-CH100-SW9

Environments

By default apns.js uses the production endpoint but you can easily change it when building the topic:

const APNS = require('auth0-apns').APNS;
const apns = new APNS('{YOUR_APPLE_TEAM_IDENTIFIER}', { id: '{YOUR_APPLE_APN_KEY_ID}', pem: '{YOUR_APPLE_APN_KEY}'});
apns
  .topic('{APNS_TOPIC}', 'development')

Errors

If APNS API returns an error, apns.js will wrap in APNSError class, where the name will hold the reason code for the failure.

Also all possible reasons are declared in APNS.Reasons.{Error}

const APNSError = require('auth0-apns').APNSError;
console.log(APNSError.Reasons.BadCollapseId.name);
console.log(APNSError.Reasons.BadCollapseId.message);

so you could check the errors like

apns
  .topic('{APNS_TOPIC}')
  .send(notification, '{DEVICE_TOKEN}')
  .then(response => console.log(response))
  .catch(error => {
    if (error.name == APNSError.Reasons.Unregistered.name) {
      console.log('User unregisteded decice from APNS');
    } else {
      console.error(error);
    }
  });

What is Auth0?

Auth0 helps you to:

  • Add authentication with multiple authentication sources, either social like Google, Facebook, Microsoft Account, LinkedIn, GitHub, Twitter, Box, Salesforce, amont others, or enterprise identity systems like Windows Azure AD, Google Apps, Active Directory, ADFS or any SAML Identity Provider.
  • Add authentication through more traditional username/password databases.
  • Add support for linking different user accounts with the same user.
  • Support for generating signed Json Web Tokens to call your APIs and flow the user identity securely.
  • Analytics of how, when and where users are logging in.
  • Pull data from other sources and add it to the user profile, through JavaScript rules.
