  1. Hey, thanks for this guide.

    On Windows and Android this works as expected, however, on Safari (iOS) this just gives a white / blank screen.

    Obviously, Safari does not support Web push notifications but is there a way to exclude Messaging initialization if it’s not supported? As currently I suppose this is the root cause.

    What would be the required code adjustments to do this, can you suggest anything?


  2. hey,thanks for this code
    windows browser its working but mac-book chrome browser not receiving notification?

  3. Maybe its just me, but i tried duplicating this project on codesandbox enabling notifications for the site but I keep getting this Firebase Messaging Notification permission was not granted.

  4. Hi,

    Thanks for the article. How about registering the firebase service worker? Can’t find in the code the place where we register the “firebase-messaging-sw.js” by calling navigator.serviceWorker.register(‘/firebase-messaging-sw.js’)

  5. “Cannot read properties of undefined (reading ‘getProvider’)” got this error while implementing in app.js

  6. Hey! While I was adding the getToken function in firebase.js and importing firebase.js in app.js using the import statement: `import { getToken } form firebase.js`

    I got an error stating:- Identifier ‘getToken’ has already been declared. (23:13)

    Can you please help me out.

      1. The solution is just to change the name of the function to “fetchToken” (You can see this as well, if you open the github repo)
        If you just reference it as this, it will work

  7. What if i want to hide firebaseconfig because it can be easily accessible by anyone who will visit the application and can use the firebase config keys.
