Qt 5 Push Notifications with V-Play’s Parse Push Plugin

By Alex

Push Notifications are a great way to engage with your users. Earlier last year we released our Local Notifications Plugin. The plugin is great for time-triggered actions, especially for timer-based applications. Local notifications however are not working out when you need logic controlled outside of your apps, like it’s done for social games and social networks.

Thus we are happy to announce the release of our Parse Push Plugin for iOS & Android.

Server-side logic for delivering cross-platform push notifications can be hard. Moreover you want to focus on building your app or game, not on back-end code. We therefore choose Facebook’s Parse Push service as push back-end. Parse allows sending push messages through their push web composer or from your own web server via a REST interface.

How Does It Work?

Integrating the plugin is as easy as usual with V-Play and QML:

Parse {
  applicationId: "<PARSE-APP-ID>"
  clientKey: "<PARSE-CLIENT-ID>"

  onNotificationReceived: {
    console.debug("Received new notification")
  }
}
