    I actually thought about buffering notifications during "the silence notification between X and Y" window (to be implemented as part of https://github.com/binwiederhier/ntfy/issues/5) and then sending them out as one when the window ends. So I think I'll definitely add something like this, though probably not as an email .D

    I had not heard of mqtt. I'll take a look at what it is and may add support for it. Here's a ticket for it: https://github.com/binwiederhier/ntfy/issues/8

    I opened an issue earlier today for F-Droid: https://github.com/binwiederhier/ntfy/issues/7 -- I think I'll have to remove the Firebase pieces for that, so it's not just a matter of uploading it. Should be a couple of days I think. I suggest subscribing to the Github issue then you'll know when it's done.

    It's raw HTTP long polling (forever open connection). Check out https://ntfy.sh it shows API usage examples. The Android app is just one consumer of the API.

    Regarding the iOS app, I don't have an iPhone and such, so I wouldn't know how to do that. If it takes off, I'll probably make one. Or you could make one :-DD (see https://github.com/binwiederhier/ntfy/issues/4)

    That said, the ntfy is much easier to set up since you don't need to host your own server. Everyone can do that.

    Yeah that's why both the web UI (example: https://ntfy.sh) and the app say "the topic s basically your password, so pick something not tooo easily guessable"

    > You could message the owner of phone directly through a URL. The request would be handled by server on phone!

    I know it's not like a web server on the phone or anything, and likely questionable to mention it at all (since I made it), but I made a thing that lets you send notifications to a phone (or desktop) via curl [0] via a simple PUT or POST. It's definitely not a cool protocol since it's simple HTTP, but it's in the spirit of other Unix tools since it's just one thing to do one job.

    Great work and article.

    I feel compelled to mention my recent very related project: ntfy.sh -- it's also written in Go, has a web UI, and Android app, and uses SSE to communicate with the browser. It allows you to send notifications to the browser with PUT/POST requests.

    That's a cool idea. That's likely also not hard to implement. Can you add a ticket in https://github.com/binwiederhier/ntfy/issues? I don't think polling would change anything there. I'll likely do the long-poll approach anyway.
