Javascript only client? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible for me to use notification hubs on a plain old webpage with say HTML5/JavaScript? I want my web app to be able to receive notifications running on a desktop computer. Does that work? Thanks!

  • Hi,

    It is not possible to get Notification Hub on a plain webpage just created with HTML5 or JavaScript or on a normal web app running on a desktop computer.

    Notification Hubs can be used from any back-end (cloud or on-premises) to send push notifications to all major mobile platforms (Windows/Windows Phone, iOS, Android).

    However, if your app is registered to Windows Store, you can use the notification hub. Please refer : http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/notification-hubs-windows-store-dotnet-get-started/
