Realtime JavaScript Applications (PWAs and Drupal)

For real-time notifications, we now have another alternative to websockets and third-party services like Amazon SNS and Urban Airship to name a few. By combining the Notification and Push APIs with Service Workers, you can send users OS-level notifications, or even send data to your web app. With browser support steadily improving, push notifications are becoming an effective way to re-engage users, even when the webpage is closed.
