# Push Notification Simple Setup

Create new project PushNotification

react-native init PushNotification

Put following in index.android.js

import React, { Component } from 'react';

import {
  AppRegistry,
  StyleSheet,
  Text,
  View,
  Button
} from 'react-native';

import PushNotification from 'react-native-push-notification';

export default class App extends Component {

    constructor(props){
        super(props);
        
        this.NewNotification = this.NewNotification.bind(this);
      }

    componentDidMount(){

        PushNotification.configure({

            // (required) Called when a remote or local notification is opened or received
            onNotification: function(notification) {
                console.log( 'NOTIFICATION:', notification );
            },

            // Should the initial notification be popped automatically
            // default: true
            popInitialNotification: true,

            /**
              * (optional) default: true
              * - Specified if permissions (ios) and token (android and ios) will requested or not,
              * - if not, you must call PushNotificationsHandler.requestPermissions() later
              */
            requestPermissions: true,
        });

    }

      NewNotification(){

          let date = new Date(Date.now() + (this.state.seconds * 1000));

          //Fix for IOS
        if(Platform.OS == "ios"){
            date = date.toISOString();
        }

        PushNotification.localNotificationSchedule({
            message: "My Notification Message", // (required)
            date: date,// (optional) for setting delay
            largeIcon:""// set this blank for removing large icon
            //smallIcon: "ic_notification", // (optional) default: "ic_notification" with fallback for "ic_launcher" 
        });
    }

      render() {
    
        return (
            <View style={styles.container}>
                <Text style={styles.welcome}>
                  Push Notification
                </Text>
                <View style={styles.Button} >
                <Button
                  onPress={()=>{this.NewNotification()}}
                  title="Show Notification"
                  style={styles.Button}
                  color="#841584"
                  accessibilityLabel="Show Notification"
                />
                </View>
            </View>
        );
      }
}

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    justifyContent: 'center',
    alignItems: 'center',
    backgroundColor: '#F5FCFF',
  },
  welcome: {
    fontSize: 20,
    textAlign: 'center',
    margin: 10,
  },
  Button:{
    margin: 10,
  }
});

AppRegistry.registerComponent('PushNotification', () => App);

Here's a simple example to demonstrate that how can we jump/open a specific screen based on the notification. For example, when a user clicks on the notification, the app should open and directly jump to notifications page instead of home page.

'use strict';

import React, { Component } from 'react';

    StyleSheet,
    Text,
    View,
    Navigator,
    TouchableOpacity,
    AsyncStorage,
    BackAndroid,
    Platform,
} from 'react-native';
import PushNotification from 'react-native-push-notification';

let initialRoute = { id: 'loginview' }

export default class MainClass extends Component
{
    constructor(props)
    {
        super(props);

        this.handleNotification = this.handleNotification.bind(this);
    }

    handleNotification(notification)
    {
        console.log('handleNotification');
        var notificationId = ''
        //your logic to get relevant information from the notification
        
    //here you navigate to a scene in your app based on the notification info
        this.navigator.push({ id: Constants.ITEM_VIEW_ID, item: item });
    }

    componentDidMount()
    {
        var that = this;

        PushNotification.configure({

            // (optional) Called when Token is generated (iOS and Android)
            onRegister: function(token) {
                console.log( 'TOKEN:', token );

                console.log( notification );

                that.handleNotification(notification);
            },

            // ANDROID ONLY: (optional) GCM Sender ID.
            senderID: "Vizido",

              */
            requestPermissions: true,
        });
    }

    render()
    {

        return (

                ref={(nav) => this.navigator = nav }

                configureScene={(route) =>
                    {
                        if (route.sceneConfig)
                        {
                            return route.sceneConfig;
                        }
                        return Navigator.SceneConfigs.FadeAndroid;
                    }
                }
            />
        );
    }

    renderScene(route, navigator)
    {

        switch (route.id)
        {
            // do your routing here
            case 'mainview':
