Google Cloud Messaging vs Notifiers: What are the differences?

Google Cloud Messaging: Simple and reliable messaging to reach over a billion devices. Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) is a free service that enables developers to send messages between servers and client apps. This includes downstream messages from servers to client apps, and upstream messages from client apps to servers; Notifiers: An easy way to send notifications. A one stop shop for all notification providers with a unified and simple interface.

Google Cloud Messaging and Notifiers belong to "Mobile Push Messaging" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Google Cloud Messaging are:

  • Versatile Messaging Targets: Distribute messages to your client app in any of three ways — to single devices, to groups of devices, or to devices subscribed to topics.
  • Downstream Messaging: For purposes such as alerting users, chat messaging or kicking off background processing before the user opens the client app, GCM provides a reliable and battery-efficient connection between your server and devices.
  • Upstream Messaging: Send acknowledgments, chats, and other messages from devices back to your server over GCM’s reliable and battery-efficient connection channel.

On the other hand, Notifiers provides the following key features:

  • Spend your precious time on your own code base, instead of chasing down 3rd party provider APIs
  • A minimal set of well known and stable dependencies (requests, jsonschema and click)
  • A unified interface means that you already support any new providers that will be added, no more work needed!

Notifiers is an open source tool with 1.17K GitHub stars and 38 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Notifiers's open source repository on GitHub.

          What are some alternatives to Google Cloud Messaging and Notifiers?
          Firebase
          Firebase is a cloud service designed to power real-time, collaborative applications. Simply add the Firebase library to your application to gain access to a shared data structure; any changes you make to that data are automatically synchronized with the Firebase cloud and with other clients within milliseconds.
          RabbitMQ
          RabbitMQ gives your applications a common platform to send and receive messages, and your messages a safe place to live until received.
          Amazon SNS
          Amazon Simple Notification Service makes it simple and cost-effective to push to mobile devices such as iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, and internet connected smart devices, as well as pushing to other distributed services. Besides pushing cloud notifications directly to mobile devices, SNS can also deliver notifications by SMS text message or email, to Simple Queue Service (SQS) queues, or to any HTTP endpoint.
          Apple Push Notification Service
          It is the centerpiece of the remote notifications feature. It is a robust, secure, and highly efficient service for app developers to propagate information to iOS (and, indirectly, watchOS), tvOS, and macOS devices.
          MQTT
          It was designed as an extremely lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport. It is useful for connections with remote locations where a small code footprint is required and/or network bandwidth is at a premium.
