A node js client to consume the Pushwoosh API to send push notifications to mobile devices

Quick Reference

Installation

npm i pushwoosh-client --save

Send message to all devices

var Pushwoosh = require('pushwoosh-client');
var client= new Pushwoosh("AppCode", "AuthToken");

client.sendMessage('Hello world', function(error, response) {
     if (error) {
        console.log('Some error occurs: ', error);
     }

     console.log('Pushwoosh API response is', response);
});

To a specific device or devices

To send messages to a specificed device or devices, you can pass a device token or an arrays with devices

// Push to a device
client.sendMessage('Hello world', 'device token', function(error, response) {
     ...
});
// Push to multiple devices
client.sendMessage('Hello world', ['deviceToken1', 'deivceToken2'], function(error, response) {
     ...
});

Configure option if we don't want to send to all devices by default

By default, if we don't provide the device params, it will send push notifications to all devices. Sometimes this might not be what we want.

If we initialise Pushwoosh Client with shouldSendToAllDevices to false, then it will NOT send push notifications and return a callback error if we did not provide any device/devices.

var Pushwoosh = require('pushwoosh-client');
var client= new Pushwoosh("AppsGroupCode", "AuthToken", {
    shouldSendToAllDevices: false
});

client.sendMessage('Hello world', function(error, response) {
     // We will get error here as we don't have any device/devices provided
});

Note: shouldSendToAllDevices is set to true if we don't configure it in option

Extra options/payload

To pass extra options (please refer to the Pushwoosh doc for the available options) , you could define an option object and pass it to the function as a 2nd or 3rd parameter. E.g. if you want to pass addtional payload to the device, you could do:

var Pushwoosh = require('pushwoosh-client'),
    client= new Pushwoosh("AppCode", "AuthToken"),
    options = {
        data: {
            username: 'bob smith',
            email: 'bob@example.com'
        }
    };
    client.sendMessage('Hello world', 'device token', options, function(error, response) {
     ...
    });

Note that if you define devices or content in the options, the devices and message will be overwritten.

var options = {
        data: {
            username: 'bob smith',
            email: 'bob@example.com'
        },
        devices: ['deviceToken1', 'deviceToken2', 'deviceToken3']
    };
client.sendMessage('Hello world', 'device token', options, function(error, response) {
     ...
});

Then this will send to ['deviceToken1', 'deviceToken2', 'deviceToken3'] as defined in options. so you probably just want to just do

client.sendMessage('Hello world', options, function(error, response) {
    ...
});

Applications group

To use Puswoosh applications_group code(which allows you to send to multilple applications) instead of application code, you must pass a third options argument when creating the client with useApplicationsGroup set to true:

var Pushwoosh = require('pushwoosh-client');
var client= new Pushwoosh("AppsGroupCode", "AuthToken", {
    useApplicationsGroup: true,
    ...
});

// Will push using "applications_group":"AppsGroupCode" for all of the explained invocation patterns
client.sendMessage('Hello world', function(error, response) {
     ...
});
// or
client.sendMessage('Hello world', options, function(error, response) {
    ...
});
// ... and so on

Register device

To register a device's push token in Pushwoosh:

var Pushwoosh = require('pushwoosh-client');
var client= new Pushwoosh('AppCode', 'AuthToken');

var registerDeviceOptions = {
    push_token: 'pushtoken',
    hwid: 'hwid',
    device_type: 3,
    language: 'en', // optional, two-letter code ISO-639-1
    timezone: -3600 // optional, offset in seconds
};

// this will register the device for the client's 'AppCode' application
client.registerDevice(registerDeviceOptions, function(error, response) {
     ...
});

Unregister device

To unregister a device in Pushwoosh:

var Pushwoosh = require('pushwoosh-client');
var client= new Pushwoosh('AppCode', 'AuthToken');

var unregisterDeviceOptions = {
    hwid: 'hwid'
};

// this will unregister the device from the client's 'AppCode' application
client.unregisterDevice(unregisterDeviceOptions, function(error, response) {
     ...
});

Set tags for device

To set tags for a device in Pushwoosh:

var Pushwoosh = require('pushwoosh-client');
var client= new Pushwoosh('AppCode', 'AuthToken');
 
var setTagsOptions = {
    hwid: 'hwid',
    tags: {
        price: "1.99",
        language: "pl"
    }
};
 
// this will set the device tags for the client's 'AppCode' application
client.setTags(setTagsOptions , function(error, response) {
    ...
});

Get tags for device

To get tags for a device from Pushwoosh:

var Pushwoosh = require('pushwoosh-client');
var client= new Pushwoosh('AppCode', 'AuthToken');

var getTagsOptions = {
    hwid: 'hwid'
};

// this will get the device tags for the client's 'AppCode' application
client.getTags(getTagsOptions , function(error, response) {
    ...
});
