Helper methods for generating resources required by Apple's Safari Push Notifications (http://l.brow.si/1rAeIvg)

node-safari-push-notifications

Helper methods for generating resources required by Apple's Safari Push Notifications. This library was written while trying to implement node.js server that answers Safari, but it seems that OpenSSL's PKCS7 functions weren't available.

Stable version:

$ npm install safari-push-notifications

From git:

$ npm install git://github.com/MySiteApp/node-safari-push-notifications.git

Example

Certificate and Private Key should be in PEM format (pKey without password for now...)

    var fs = require('fs'),
        pushLib = require('safari-push-notifications');
 
    var cert = fs.readFileSync('cert.pem'),
        key = fs.readFileSync('key.pem'),
        websiteJson = pushLib.websiteJSON(
            "My Site", // websiteName 
            "web.com.mysite.news", // websitePushID 
            ["http://push.mysite.com"], // allowedDomains 
            "http://mysite.com/news?id=%@", // urlFormatString 
            0123456789012345, // authenticationToken (zeroFilled to fit 16 chars) 
            "https://" + baseUrl + "/push" // webServiceURL (Must be https!) 
        );
    var zipBuffer = pushLib.generatePackage(
            websiteJson, // The object from before / your own website.json object 
            path.join("assets", "safari_assets"), // Folder containing the iconset 
            cert, // Certificate 
            key // Private Key 
        );
 
    fs.writeFileSync("pushPackage.zip", zipBuffer);

Note

When building this module, the PKCS7_Sign and SMIME_write_PKCS7 embedded in OS X 10.9 continued to fail. So I copied OpenSSL 0.9.8's version and it works just as the companion example from Apple.

Changelog

  • Node.js v0.12 support
  • Using NaN for binding abstraction
  • First version.
