Video explaining notifications-rails

snake117 asked in Gems / Libraries

Hey Chris,

I was wondering if you could do a video on the gem 'notifications-rails'? I like their approach, as it's broken down into 4 main components: NotificationHandler, NotificationRenderer, NotificationSetting, and NotificationPusher.

The problem is the documentation is rather sparse and, while I did get the notifications to create and render (which took awhile on its own), any time I try to add additional features I end up running into a number of errors.

If used correctly, however, I think this seems to be one of the more flexible and popular notification systems for Rails, as it also takes care of User preferences and subscriptions too. Maybe it could also be added to Jumpstart Pro? A lot of users are asking for a built-in, configurable notification system there, so it may be worth looking into (unless there is another gem you've had your eye on).

I'm interested in hearing your thoughts about this. Thanks!
