node-gcm

node-gcm is a Node.JS library for Google Cloud Messaging for Android, which replaces Cloud 2 Device Messaging (C2DM).

Installation

$ npm install node-gcm

Requirements

An Android device running 2.2 or newer and an API key as per GCM getting started guide.

Usage

var gcm = require('node-gcm');

var message = new gcm.Message();
var sender = new gcm.Sender('insert Google Server API Key here');
var registrationIds = [];

// Optional
message.addData('key1','message1');
message.addData('key2','message2');
message.collapseKey = 'demo';
message.delayWhileIdle = true;
message.timeToLive = 3;

// At least one required
registrationIds.push('regId1');
registrationIds.push('regId2'); 

/**
 * Parameters: message-literal, registrationIds-array, No. of retries, callback-function
 */
sender.send(message, registrationIds, 4, function (result) {
    console.log(result);
});

sender.sendNoRetry(message, registrationIds-array, function (result) {
    console.log(result);
