Getting Started

Novu provides you a set of API's and components to create rich customized notification center experiences. You can either choose to work headless with our notification feed API. And create your own custom notification center user-interface, or user our ready-to-use UI and customize partially.

Notification Center

React component

After creating your Novu Platform account and creating your first notification template it's time to connect the In-app channel to your application.

npm install @novu/notification-center

And in the appropriate place withing your app add the PopoverNotificationCenter component with the NovuProvider

import { NovuProvider, PopoverNotificationCenter, NotificationBell } from '@novu/notification-center';

function Header() {
return (
<NovuProvider subscriberId={'USER_ID'} applicationIdentifier={'APP_ID_FROM_ADMIN_PANEL'}>
<PopoverNotificationCenter>
{({ unseenCount }) => <NotificationBell unseenCount={unseenCount} />}
</PopoverNotificationCenter>
</NovuProvider>
);
}

That's it! Now you're ready to send your first notifications using Novu.
