These are the problems that this app solves
Activities, both by other users (such as actions resulting in new items in followed activity streams) and by asynchronous background tasks should have the ability to send notifications to users without having their browser poll for new items or task statuses. While for some notifications email is appropriate, having on-site real time notifications encourages users to stay on the site. Some users don't like email notifications, or prefer digests of activity.
What I intend for this app to provide
- A simple API for sending notifications targeted to a user, without needing an open request instance.
- Support for translating notification strings for the user.
- Users can enable email notifications either as instant emails, or a daily or weekly digest.
