It’s been a long, long time since I messed around with Google’s push notification messaging. In fact, the last time I played around with it, it was still called “C2DM,” or Cloud to Device Messaging. Since that time, “GCM,” or Google Cloud Messaging was introduced. And even that is superseded by Google’s new Firebase (FCM) messaging. The most recent iteration is very interesting since it’s cross-platform and directly supports iOS, Android, and Web notifications.

Today I spent a few hours playing around with Apache Cordova. If you don’t know what that is, it’s basically a set of API’s that let you deploy Web Apps (JavaScript) to a mobile device and then have access to that device’s hardware.

If you’re already writing SPA-type apps, Apache Cordova can be a quick way to deploy your Web App to a mobile device and have it behave just like a native app.
