// hostname ~=
// authPath ~= /auth
// channelPath ~= /channel
Pusher.initialize(hostname, authPath, channelPath, appKey, cluster, token) //This is a Promise
//Connect (There is also disconnect)
Pusher.connect() //This is a Promise
//Subscribe to a channel (There is also channelUnsubscribe)
Pusher.channelSubscribe(channel, channelEventName) //This is a Promise
//Send a message
Pusher.messagePost(messageObject, channelName, channelEvent) //This is a promise
//You will want to listen for events:
componentDidMount() {
  DeviceEventEmitter.addListener('pusher-event', this.yourEventHandler)
componentWillUnmount() {
You can’t perform that action at this time.
