Thanks @alefattorini
djfarrelly has already suggested me the same thing here, but I had no time.
I hope to do so soon :wink:

Could you give a brief explanation of the technical implementation - how does this extension poll the site for notifications? Does it keep the session constantly online, or does the pluging check-in to the site periodically for new notfications?

Recently I’ve had some messagebus load issues under very high traffic spikes, so I am concerned what it will do to my server load, if all my loyalists install this plugin.

It gets some user data at boot, for example to get the user id.
Then it uses message bus to receive notifications.
@sam gave me the advice in this post

Probably you may find some useful information here

@meglio I’ve implemented it with a new option. What do you think ?
The new version is 1.1.1


I have discourse running on a static IP address on GCP but no FQDN. This plugin will not accept the IP address as a URL. I would be nice if that were rectified. Thanks in advance.

@theomniaproject could you please open a bug into the github project Issues · alepolidori/chrome-discourse-notifications · GitHub ?

Thx for reporting! :slight_smile:


Notifications do not appear to be working properly. Installed… have the latest discourse build and chrome.
