I am still new to firebase and coding in general, so if you need me to clarify anything, I would love to do so. I want to ask how should I integrate push notification with firebase?
Basically I have an app that I am building with firebase using Ionic platform. I want my app to be able to record each user's current location and if an event is created within that user's current location's radius, then I would fire a push notification letting them know that some event is created say within 30 miles. I am having trouble deciding between a good third party service (if anyone knows anything that is good with firebase) or building my own server? What is the best option to integrate with firebase?
Right now, what I thought about so far is using geoFire to push every user's locations and do a geoquery when there is a new event, find those users' who are within certain miles and then send push notification to these users. I was wondering if anyone has any better idea?
Thank you so much,
