Integrating Push Notifications into a mobile app

Integrating Push Notifications into a mobile app

  

Hi all from what I've read in the documentation, push notifications can be implemented in one of two ways: Pushwoosh, or Onesignal. However, with further reading, since onesignals depends on firebase to send the push notifications to the android clients, and firebase has the ability to push to both ios and android, is it possible to skip the onesignal plugin and connect directly to firebase?

Yes I know. My question is there a way to SKIP onesignal.

because firebase has the capabilities to replace onesignal functionalities. Why do we need onesignal in the whole sequence?

For me, personally, using onesignal simplify the usage for push notification :D

But if you still want to user firebase, you could check Outsystems Expert (https://www.outsystems.com/profile/81934/activity/forge)
