How do you manage notifications in your apps?

When you're working on a fullstack project that includes a website and maybe an app for different platforms, how do you manage notifications (push notifications on web, android and ios, email notifications sms notifications, maybe even telegram notifications...)? Hack yourself or do you have a library to handle that task?

I keep everything on email. Apart from some critical notifications (e.g from the banking app), I have disabled everything on my phone and never used a single web notification. Try this - your brain will be thankful.

(of course, I check my apps on my phone but I do this "on-demand")

I'll go first. The only thing I have found googling for the issue is github.com/namshi/notificator

However I refuse to use anything that works with php so I'm about to create my own library for this purpose in a proper programming language.

Just found this:
github.com/nikoksr/notify
I think this is just what I have been looking for!

It's a scientific fact.
