EasyNotify-client (this repository) is a Javascript client library for the browser that can receive all the notifications sent via Easy-Notify. As a push notification service, Easy-Notify implements push notification in browser through Web-Push and Socket.IO. To experice all the services, sign up for a free account on easynotify.site.


npm i easy-notify-client


Include easy-notify-client

You can include notifier.min.js as script file.

// In your html
<script src="/easy-notify-client/dist/notifier.min.js"></script>
	// Access notifier through EasyNotify.notifier
	await EasyNotify.notifier.init() 

	// or
	const { notifier } = windoe.EasyNotify
	await notifier.init()

Or include easy-notify-client in your project using Webpack or other bundlers.

import  { notifier }  from  "easy-notify-client";  
await notifier.init() 

Setting service woker for Web-Push

Web-Push requires a service worker script to register the service worker of your website. For example, for the example.com/index.html, we need a Javascript file residing at example.com/notify-sw.js, so that we can register the service worker that will control example.com/index.html as well as pages underneath it.

Create a notify-sw.js at the top scope of your folder:

// (example) notify-sw.js:
const  channel = new  BroadcastChannel('Notify-sw');  //The name of BoradcastChannel is used to initialize the notifier

// Register event listener for the 'push' event.
self.addEventListener('push', async  function (event) {
  const  data = event.data ? event.data.json() : 'no payload';
  if (data.title === 'auth') {
  	return  channel.postMessage(data);

  // Keep the service worker alive until the notification is created.
  	self.registration.showNotification(data.title, {
  		body:  data.body,
  		icon:  data.icon,

Once we've done, we can initialize the notifier through the path of service worker script and the broadcast channel. In the example above, our service worker file located at '/notify-sw.js', and our broadcast channel is named as 'Notify-sw'.

await notifier.init('/notify-sw.js', 'Notify-sw') 

Feel free to modify the name of service worker and broadcast channel as you want. You can also customize the behavior of your service worker is sw.js.

Set the push handler and subscribe to your channel!

// Basic Example
import { notifier } from  './modules/notifier.js';

$(document).ready(async  function () {
  // Initialize notifier
  await  notifier.init('/notify-sw.js', 'Notify-sw');
  // Set push hander to process the content of notification
  notifier.setPushHandler((data) => {

  // Subcribe to your channel
  $('.subscribe-btn').click(async  function (event) {
  	await  notifier.subscribe(YOUR  CHANNELID, YOUR  PUBLICKEY);

  // Unsubcribe to your channel
  $('#unsubscribe').click(async  function (event) 
  	await  notifier.unsubscribe();


notifier exposes four functions:

  • init
  • setPushHandler
  • subscribe
  • unsubscribe


The init function will initialize the SocketIO client and register the service worker. It takes two argument: Path of service worker script, Name of broadcast channel

await notifier.init(ServiceWorkerPath, BroadcastChannelName) 

The default value of ServiceWorkerPath is '/notify-sw.js', and 'Notify-sw' for BroadcastChannelName.


The setPushHandler function requires a callback function that accept the one argument - the content of notification. Attach any self‑defined setting in the config filed when sending the notification, you can easily adjust the notification layout by retrieving the configuration in the push handler

Set the handler manager to notifier

notifier.setPushHandler((data) => {
	console.log('Test handler receive data', data);
    console.log('Test handler receive data', data);
    try {
      const { type } = JSON.parse(data.config);
      const handler = handlers[type];
    } catch (error) {
      console.log('No config, just alert the notification');
      alert(data.title + '\n' + data.body);

Customize the notification through related tools, like SweetAlert2 or toastr.

const  sweetHandler = (data) => {
	let { status } = JSON.parse(data.config);
	Swal.fire(data.title, data.body, status);

const  toastrType = {
	success:  toastr.success,
	warning:  toastr.warning,
	error:  toastr.error,
const  toastrHandler = (data) => {
	const { status } = JSON.parse(data.config);
	const  handler = toastrType[status] || alert;
	handler(data.title, data.body);
const  handlers = {
	sweetalert:  sweetHandler,
	toastr:  toastrHandler,

You can then try to send Notification through website or API like:

/* use sweetalert */
/* use toastr */


The subscribe function requires two arguments: your Channel ID and Public Key. You can find them on easynotify.site/mangement/apps/channel

	await notifier.subscribe(ChannelID, PublicKey) 

Note: when the function is invoked, the browser will ask the permission of clients to allow push notification. You can prompt your clients through some UI.


The unsubscribe function will remove the origin subscription

	await notifier.unsubscribe()
