Notification Feed API for Apps

Get a JSON of all your recently pushed campaigns to create a Notification Center! 🔔 (only for Android)

This API allows you to get a list of recently published campaigns in a JSON format which can then be used to create a fully customizable Notification Center for your app. The design of the Notification Center including the UI/X would have to be thought through by you and your team. On a very high level, using this API would include the following steps:

  • Make sure News Hub is configured and enabled: Ensure you enable News Hub from the panel before proceeding to the next steps. You can reach out to your Account Manager or send an email to [email protected] to get this option enabled for your apps.
  • Creating and designing the Notification Widget and Feed Menu: Be creative in your approach and lure users in by designing an attractive and useful Notification Center. Customize it with your app theme and run hypotheses/experiments to maximize engagement.
  • Populating the Feed Menu with data: We will talk about this step in detail in the below section.

Using the API

This API provides data in a succession of 15 notifications per call. You can call the API again to fetch the next 15 notifications and so on. It is recommended to do so whenever the users scroll scrolls down inside the Notification Center.

To fetch the initial feed data (15 notifications) a developer needs to call a method inside the app as given below:

String jsonData = iZooto.getNotificationFeed(isPagination);

// For first call, isPagination = false
// For subsequent calls, isPagination = true
// isPagination = true should be called when the user the scrolls down inside the News Hub.
// Do something with the JSON data
// Add the below method in the main.dart file
var  jsonData = await iZooto.getNotificationFeed(isPagination);

// For first call, isPagination = false
// For subsequent calls, isPagination = true
// isPagination = true should be called when the user the scrolls down inside the News Hub.
// Do something with the JSON data
// Add the below method in App.js file
var  jsonData = await iZooto.getNotificationFeed(isPagination);

// For first call, isPagination = false
// For subsequent calls, isPagination = true
// isPagination = true should be called when the user the scrolls down inside the News Hub.
// Do something with the JSON data

Note: This API should only be called after you've initialized the iZooto SDK for your app.

You will receive response data which will have information as explained in the next section.

👍

For an ideal UX, use Lazy Loading and show up more notifications as the user scrolls down your Notification Center with isPagination = true in the above method.
