Push Notification FCM on Meteor 2021

I am currently have a system which implements raix:push package on the server side.
We are planning to move to FCM for relying on Firebase for sending notifications on the client side for Android and iOS.

It seems like there is just one package that do that work:

but beside that is there any other implementation or package that I can take a look?

Hi there, I am the auth ā€¦ ok the author originally was RAIX. I am the upgrader and maintainer of this package and as far as I know, there is no other package that does this job. There are options to integrate with other techs like OneSignal as described here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDMQ15TWDRU but with a 3rd party you have the issue of privacy. If you go for a third party Iā€™d suggest to first clarify privacy with your Push service provider.
As far as the above package is concerned, I have no reasons to believe that it will miss support in the next 2-3 years because I write on two different products that needs it and will use it in the future.

Hello.

I am looking forward to work with this library. Quick question? Is there a Meteor group on Slack? Or there is any discord channel where people can discuss or ask related question to Meteor?

I was planning to work on a library all by myself, but I think it is better to be a contributor.

Let me know your thoughts.

I think you are already in that group you ask about which is ā€¦ this forum.

raix.push does work with FCM. Though it is no longer maintained

I am using it on my app and it works with meteor 1.12.

raix:push is deprecated and I think it never worked with the FCM technology and it could be that moving from GCM to FCM is what killed this package since very few people knew the insides: https://github.com/raix/push/blob/df45b9eb80d34599d70b24a6e215d4a6b168ae83/lib/server/push.api.js#L302

This is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much.
