Why another gem ?

I needed to use stunnel (TCP Proxy for encrypting with SSL/TLS) and a HTTP Proxy. The existing gems couldn't.

Installation

gem install bmo

In Gemfile :

gem 'bmo'

APNS

Usage

token = "123456789" # The device token given to you by Apple
data  = {aps: {alert: "Hello from BMO!"}}
BMO.send_ios_notification(token, data)

The aps Hash content's is described here :

https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/NetworkingInternet/Conceptual/RemoteNotificationsPG/Chapters/ApplePushService.html

Configuration

Default Params :

BMO.configuration do |config|
  config.apns.gateway_host  = 'gateway.push.apple.com'
  config.apns.gateway_port  = 2195
  config.apns.feedback_host = 'feedback.push.apple.com'
  config.apns.feedback_port = 2196
  config.apns.cert_path     = nil
  config.apns.cert_pass     = nil
end

If you set a cert_path option it will use a SSL encapsulation otherwise it will use Pure TCP. This option is particularly useful if you use a stunnel.

GCM

Usage

token = "123456789" # The device token given to you by Apple
data  = {message: "Hello from BMO!"}
BMO.send_android_notification(token, data)

The data content's is described here :

http://developer.android.com/google/gcm/server.html

Configuration

Default Params :

BMO.configuration do |config|
  config.gcm.gateway_url  = 'https://android.googleapis.com/gcm/send'
  config.gcm.api_key      = nil
end

You should set the api_key. It uses Faraday internally, so just set your regular http_proxy environment variable if need to configure a proxy.
