How to implement notification system like DEV

abhay676 profile image Abhay Goswami ・1 min read

I like the way notification system work in DEV but want to know how I can make notification system like that.

For web application ( in-app notification ) NOT push notifications

I know about GetStream but it is too costly.
It is better if someone tell me how to implement our own notification system

Thanks in advance.

I would use Firebase with a listener to new events on a collection of your choice

This is a good point. Firebase can get pricey though so probably a simple solution I can implement my self on my server would be helpful.

I noticed that their notifications do not come as push nor emails rather just an in app notification and even though I refresh the page I see the notifications icon but once I click it, they are considered as read and I don't see them anymore.
