A simple Django package to integrate Web Push Notification in your Application

Project description

[![Say Thanks!](!-1EAEDB.svg)](

Django-Webpush is a Package made for integrating and sending [Web Push Notification]( in Django Application.

Currently, it Supports Sending Push Notification to **Firefox 46+ and Chrome 52+**.


Installation and Setup

You can install it easily from pypi by running

pip install django-webpush

After installing the package, add `webpush` in in your `INSTALLED_APPS` settings


If you would like to send notification to Google Chrome Users, you need to add a ``WEBPUSH_SETTINGS`` entry with the **Vapid Credentials** Like following:
"VAPID_PUBLIC_KEY": "Vapid Public Key",
"VAPID_PRIVATE_KEY":"Vapid Private Key",
**Replace ``"Vapid Public Key"`` and ``"Vapid Private Key"`` with your Vapid Keys. Also replace ```` with your email so that the push server of browser can reach to you if anything goes wrong.**

> **To know how to obtain Vapid Keys please see this [`py_vapid`]( and [Google Developer Documentation]( You can obtain one easily from []( ``Application Server Keys`` and ``Vapid Keys`` both are same.**

Then include `webpush` in the ``

urlpatterns = [
url(r'^webpush/', include('webpush.urls'))

`django-webpush` is shipped with built in **`jinja`** support.
If you would like to use with jinja backend,
pass ``pipeline.jinja2.PipelineExtension`` to your jinja environment. Like following:

"BACKEND": "django_jinja.backend.Jinja2",
'extensions': ['webpush.jinja2.WebPushExtension'],

**Then run Migration by ***`python migrate`*****

Adding Web Push Information in Template

So in template, you need to load `webpush_notifications` custom template tag by following:
- If you are using built in templating engine, add `{% load webpush_notifications %}` in the template
- If you are using **jinja** templating engine, you do not need to load anything.

Next, inside the `<head></head>` tag add `webpush_header` according to your templating engine:

# For django templating engine
{% webpush_header %}
# For jinja templating engine
{{ webpush_header() }}
Next, inside the `<body></body>` tag, insert `webush_button` where you would like to see the **Subscribe to Push Messaging** Button. Like following

<p> Hello World! </p>
# For django templating engine
{% webpush_button %}
# For jinja templating engine
{{ webpush_button() }}

>**Note:** The Push Notification Button will show only if the user is logged in or any `group` named is passed through `webpush` context

***If you would like to mark the subscription as a group, like all person subscribe for push notification from the template should be marked as group and would get same notification, you should pass a `webpush` context to the template through views. The `webpush` context should have a dictionary like `{"group": group_name}`*** . Like following

webpush = {"group": group_name } # The group_name should be the name you would define.

return render(request, 'template.html', {"webpush":webpush})
> **Note:** If you dont pass `group` through the `webpush` context, only logged in users can see the button for subscription and able to get notification.


Sending Web Push Notification

A Web Push generally have a header and body. According to the W3C Specification, the data should be encrypted in transmission. the data is addressed as payload generally. Also a TTL header should be included indicating how much time the web push server store the data if the user is not online.
So in order to send notification, see below.

- If you would like to send notification to a specific group, do like following:

from webpush import send_group_notification

payload = {"head": "Welcome!", "body": "Hello World"}

send_group_notification(group_name="my_group", payload=payload, ttl=1000)
# All subscribe subscribe through "my_group" will get a web push notification.
# A ttl of 1000 is passed so the web push server will store
# the data maximum 1000 seconds if any user is not online


- If you would like to send Notification to a specific user, do like following
from webpush import send_user_notification

payload = {"head": "Welcome!", "body": "Hello World"}

send_user_notification(user=user, payload=payload, ttl=1000)
# Here in the user parameter, a user object should be passed
# The user will get notification to all of his subscribed browser. A user can subscribe many browsers.
**And the subscribers will get a notification like**
