Step 1: Import PushBots Plugin:

Run the following from the terminal in your project directory:

  • For cordova:cordova plugin add pushbots-cordova-plugin --save
  • For Phonegap:phonegap plugin add pushbots-cordova-plugin --save

Step 2: Add Required code:

Add this line to your js/index.js to intialize Pushbots in onDeviceReady section:

window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.initialize("PUSHBOTS_APPLICATION_ID", {"android":{"sender_id":"GOOGLE_SENDER_ID"}});

// Only with First time registration
window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.on("registered", function(token){
console.log("Registration Id:" + token);
});

//Get user registrationId/token and userId on PushBots, with evey launch of the app even launching with notification
window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.on("user:ids", function(data){
console.log("user:ids" + JSON.stringify(data));
});
  • You should replace PUSHBOTS_APPLICATION_ID with the application ID found in Keys tab in app settings, and GOOGLE_SENDER_ID with the senderID generated using this guide.

Methods to use it:

window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.setAlias("Test");
window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.removeAlias();

//Add or remove Single tag
window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.tag("tag1");
window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.untag("tag1");

//Add or remove array of tags
window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.setTags(["tag1"]);
window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.removeTags(["tag1"]);

window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.debug(true);

//unsubscribe user from receiving notifications
window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.toggleNotifications(false);

//iOS only

//Reset Badge
window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.resetBadge();
//Set badge
window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.setBadge(10);
//Increment badge count
window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.incrementBadgeCountBy(1);
//Decrement badge count
window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.decrementBadgeCountBy(10);

To handle Notification events:

// Should be called once app receive the notification [foreground/background]
window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.on("notification:received", function(data){
console.log("received:" + JSON.stringify(data));

//iOS: [foreground/background]
console.log("notification received from:" + data.cordova_source);
//Silent notifications Only [iOS only]
//Send CompletionHandler signal with PushBots notification Id
window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.done(data.pb_n_id);
});

window.plugins.PushbotsPlugin.on("notification:clicked", function(data){
// var userToken = data.token;
       // var userId = data.userId;
  console.log("clicked:" + JSON.stringify(data));
});

Step 3: Build and test your app:
