haha wow ... that's a heck of a flowchart. But from a technical standpoint do they just poll regularly on a queue to see if they have to get to the next step?

Posted in Different Notification Types By Type

I am making a notification system and using the great tutorial on here to do it. I am going to have a few different channels that a notification can be sent out with: email, web push, text message, in-app.

I would love to do something like what slack does where I get a web push notification on my computer but if the message isn't marked as read after a certain amount of time I get a push notification to my phone, and then if I don't answer that there's emails.

It would be super annoying to get a notification on all of those different channels, all at once, everytime I got a message on slack.

Can anyone help me wrap my mind around how I would go about building that?

I keep getting a bunch of errors and I think it's because I used Sudo, but I'm not sure how to fix it. I followed this, but I'm getting the error about permission denied for postgres.

ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::FilePermissionError)

You don't have write permissions for the /Library/Ruby/Gems/2.0.0 directory.

Which I saw in other comments could be because I didn't write the one part correctly and it's using the system ruby, but I redid it multiple times to make sure it was correct (deleting the previous ones to make sure there were no issues).

I deleted everything out of my .bash_profile and redid it and I made sure it was exactly as typed but I'm getting this error sometimes: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `source'

When I type in "rbenv global" I get 2.2.2 but when I type in ruby -v I get 2.0.0 because it's using the system ruby even after restarting the terminal.

I saw the one comment about typing in: ls -ls ~/.rbenv | tail -n +2 | tr -s ' ' | cut -d ' ' -f 5 to see who owns rbenv and I get "staff" printed out a bunch (which is obviously a problem because that is not my username)

Any ideas how I can fix this botched install for a Mac newbie? Thank you!
