Node Notification Server

Travis status

Based on NowJS, a standalone server for sending and receiving notification across different live users.

Purpose

We have active online users through our flash and html5 based web application, Whenever data get changed our flash or html5 based clients get out of sync. To solve such problem we have introduced NowJS based Notification Server.

Now whenever we alter data we can notify all active users, "Something has been changed, we need to update your current state".

Usages

Start Server

$ notification-server -p < Port Number > ie 8080

Server started listening on 0.0.0.0:8080

Include in your client

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://localhost:8080/nowjs/now.js"></script>

Register your client

now.register({name: 'something', morefield: '1', anotherfield: '2'});

Access current user information

now.uid // Current user id now.info // Info you have passed through register(...)

Broadcast message

now.publish('hi there');

Get total online users

now.getTotalUsers(function(connectedUsersCount, registeredUsersCount) {});

Unregister user

now.unregister();

How to Install

npm install node-notification-server
