README

A bundle to allow sending of push notifications to mobile devices. Currently supports Android (C2DM, GCM), Blackberry and iOS devices.

Installation

To use this bundle in your Symfony2 project add the following to your composer.json:

{
    "require": {
        // ...
        "richsage/rms-push-notifications-bundle": "dev-master"
    }
}

and enable it in your kernel:

<?php
// app/AppKernel.php

public function registerBundles()
{
    $bundles = array(
        // ...
        new RMS\PushNotificationsBundle\RMSPushNotificationsBundle(),
    );
}

NOTE: If you are still using Symfony 2.0, please use the symfony2.0 branch.

Configuration

Configuration options available are as follows. Note that the specific services will only be available if you provide configuration respectively for them.

rms_push_notifications:
  android:
      c2dm:
          username: <string_android_c2dm_username>
          password: <string_android_c2dm_password>
          source: <string_android_c2dm_source>
      gcm:
          api_key: <string_android_gcm_api_key> # This is titled "Server Key" when creating it
          use_multi_curl: <boolean_android_gcm_use_multi_curl> # default is true
  ios:
      sandbox: <bool_use_apns_sandbox>
      pem: <path_apns_certificate> # can be absolute or relative path (from app directory)
      passphrase: <string_apns_certificate_passphrase>
  mac:
      sandbox: <bool_use_apns_sandbox>
      pem: <path_apns_certificate>
      passphrase: <string_apns_certificate_passphrase>
  blackberry:
      evaluation: <bool_bb_evaluation_mode>
      app_id: <string_bb_app_id>
      password: <string_bb_password>
  windowsphone: true

NOTE: If you are using Windows, you may need to set the Android GCM use_multi_curl flag to false for GCM messages to be sent correctly.

Usage

A little example of how to push your first message to an iOS device, we'll assume that you've set up the configuration correctly:

use RMS\PushNotificationsBundle\Message\iOSMessage;

class PushDemoController extends Controller
{
    public function pushAction()
    {
        $message = new iOSMessage();
        $message->setMessage('Oh my! A push notification!');
        $message->setDeviceIdentifier('test012fasdf482asdfd63f6d7bc6d4293aedd5fb448fe505eb4asdfef8595a7');

        $this->container->get('rms_push_notifications')->send($message);

        return new Response('Push notification send!');
    }
}

The send method will detect the type of message so if you'll pass it an AndroidMessage it will automatically send it through the C2DM/GCM servers, and likewise for Mac and Blackberry.

Android messages

Since both C2DM and GCM are still available, the AndroidMessage class has a small flag on it to toggle which service to send it to. Use as follows:

use RMS\PushNotificationsBundle\Message\AndroidMessage;

$message = new AndroidMessage();
$message->setGCM(true);

to send as a GCM message rather than C2DM.

iOS Feedback service

The Apple Push Notification service also exposes a Feedback service where you can get information about failed push notifications - see here for further details.

This service is available within the bundle. The following code demonstrates how you can retrieve data from the service:

$feedbackService = $container->get("rms_push_notifications.ios.feedback");
$uuids = $feedbackService->getDeviceUUIDs();

Here, $uuids contains an array of Feedback objects, with timestamp, token length and the device UUID all populated.

Apple recommend you poll this service daily.
