Web Notifications AngularJS Service

Overview

The angular-web-notification is an angular service wrapper for the web notifications API.

It is using the simple-web-notification library which provides a simple and easy notification API which works across browsers and provides automatic permission handling.

See W3 Specification and simple-web-notification for more information.

Angular 2 and Up

For angular 2 and above, it is recommanded to use the simple-web-notification library directly.
It provides the same API and it is not dependend on angular.

Usage

In order to use the angular service you first must add the relevant dependencies:

<script type="text/javascript" src="angular.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="simple-web-notification/web-notification.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="angular-web-notification.js"></script>

Next you must define it as a dependency in your main angular module as follows:

angular.module('exampleApp', [
    'angular-web-notification'
]);

Now you can inject and use the service into your modules (directives/services/...), for example:

angular.module('exampleApp').directive('showButton', ['webNotification', function (webNotification) {
return {
    ...
    link: function (scope, element) {
        element.on('click', function onClick() {
            webNotification.showNotification('Example Notification', {
                body: 'Notification Text...',
                icon: 'my-icon.ico',
                onClick: function onNotificationClicked() {
                    console.log('Notification clicked.');
                },
                autoClose: 4000 //auto close the notification after 4 seconds (you can manually close it via hide function)
            }, function onShow(error, hide) {
                if (error) {
                    window.alert('Unable to show notification: ' + error.message);
                } else {
                    console.log('Notification Shown.');

                    setTimeout(function hideNotification() {
                        console.log('Hiding notification....');
                        hide(); //manually close the notification (you can skip this if you use the autoClose option)
                    }, 5000);
                }
            });
        });
    }
};
}]);

In case you wish to use service worker web notifications, you must provide the serviceWorkerRegistration in the options as follows:

//Get the service worker registeration object at the startup of the application.
//This is an aysnc operation so you should not try to use it before the promise is finished.
var serviceWorkerRegistration;
navigator.serviceWorker.register('service-worker.js').then(function(registration) {
    serviceWorkerRegistration = registration;
});

//when setting on even handlers in different areas of the application, use that registration object instance (must be done after the registration is available)
element.on('click', function onClick() {
    webNotification.showNotification('Example Notification', {
        serviceWorkerRegistration: serviceWorkerRegistration,
        body: 'Notification Text...',
        icon: 'my-icon.ico',
        actions: [
            {
                action: 'Start',
                title: 'Start'
            },
            {
                action: 'Stop',
                title: 'Stop'
            }
        ],
        autoClose: 4000 //auto close the notification after 4 seconds (you can manually close it via hide function)
    }, function onShow(error, hide) {
        if (error) {
            window.alert('Unable to show notification: ' + error.message);
        } else {
            console.log('Notification Shown.');

            setTimeout(function hideNotification() {
                console.log('Hiding notification....');
                hide(); //manually close the notification (you can skip this if you use the autoClose option)
            }, 5000);
        }
    });
});
